A good stitching week...

I have finally finished Liberty - 1776 by Little House Needleworks and I love how it turned out. I used the over dyed floss called for on the chart and a 28 count lugana fabric.
I also started my piece for the "cake" stitch-a-long we're having at the LHN/CCN Yahoo group and this is my progress so far. I'm stitching Chocolate Shoppe by LHN and for this piece I decided to go with an 18 count aida in Tan Marble by Sassy's Fabbys with DMC floss. This will be a gift for a special little baker in my life.
