While I have a few more minutes before I have to start getting things ready for work tomorrow, I don't think any of those minutes will be used for stitching, so here is my IHSW progress:
First is Mary's Sampler:
This week's part was a small one - two crowns and the cross. Next week's part is the final one and will most likely fill that bottom left corner I do have a grasp of the obvious don't I?
And next up is Santa's Magic:
In case you forgot (I did) where this started, here is the before:
And here is where I am tonight after looking at the before and after, I got a lot more done than I thought:
The colors in the before picture are much more accurate than the after. The gap in the beard near the face is supposed to be filled in with Wisper thread. I have a love/hate relationship with that fiber so I am not sure if I will use it or not.
