It's time for my May Stitch from Stash Update! And, yes, I spent some $$ this month... but it is all Mel's fault. LOL!! Some of you may remember that she told us in the newsletter that HAED had a 50% off sale for Mother's Day, and I'm suddenly in a Christmas mood, since it is actually sunny out here... (I'm not sure how that works, but when it was cold, I didn't want to think about winter. Now that it's warm, I'm thinking about Christmas! LOL!) Anyway... I finally bought The Nativity pattern that had been on my wish list. : )
I'm doing it on 18 count. Since I'll be working on it for 10 years or so, I decided to use a fabric size that I enjoy working on. : )
Here's my progress so far...
Here's how far I have to go...
LOL!!! : )
Rather than buying all the floss at once, I'm going to plan to do about 1 1/2 columns a week, and just pick up the floss I need week by week. I only needed one color to start!
Wish me much perseverance!! : )
On to a smaller thing...
