A finish and more progress

From the Leisure Arts Leaflet
Christmas Patches
I finished him on the evening of my last post. My plan is to make the patchwork wreath and stocking to go with Santa. but decided that I needed to work on Abigail's birth sampler so here is what I have been working on the last couple of days.
This picture was as of

And this is as of last night
The baby has a face and hair.
I will continue to work on the birth sampler for a couple more days or until I feel I need to do something else for a while. But I would like to get as much done on this as possible this week because next week I am going to Tacoma WA from Monday to Friday to visit my sister. Not sure how much stitching I will get done while I am there. But I think I will be taking small projects to work on with me.
This past week end I had 3 special little girls at my house for the whole weekend. The two little ones (they are 5 & 6) love to draw and color so they keep themselves entertained but Kyla is 11 and is at that in between stage. She was looking through my cross stitch magazine and found a small ship she wanted to do. (it was in the new Cross Stitch Gold magazine that I just got) So I got her a piece of Aida and 3 of the colors she would need (not figuring that she would finish it this weekend). That was Saturday night, Sunday morning she ask for the other colors she needed to finish her ship. Before she left to go home to Iowa she had finished her little project. While she was packing her stuff up and loading it into the car I ran up stairs and found a little frame and snapped it in. She loved it !!!! Well guess what in all the excitement of her packing and them getting ready to leave we did not get a picture. But she promised to send me one.

Everyone have a great week!
Happy Stitching

Santa looks great and the baby sampler is so pretty! It's a shame you didn't get a pic of the ship to share with us. We're looking forward to it!

Cute little finish and the birth announcement is going to be adorable:)

It is a wonderful thing, to pass on the love of this craft to young stitchers. What a rush to know she was excited and able to finish it before she left...

Love the Santa and the colors in the sampler.
That was so nice of you to teach Kyla how to crosstitch and that she took an interest.
I'm looking forward to see a pic of her finish.
