With that finish, I have one commitment piece to go. A Glimpse of Santa is one the frame now and looks like this:
Someday this will be a Christmas stocking. The pattern is from the Stoney Creek Collection and is done on antique white 28-count Monaco with DMC. There will be a few modifications for this one also as the pattern is so old (I just found it but the copyright is 2001) that most of the called for bits and bobs are no longer available. I see some time at the jewelry/bead sections of the big box stores in my future and am looking forward to seeing what I can find.
I also got some time in on Santa and the Mouse and Shakespearean Fantasy this week.
And last for this week:
Gold and Purple Corner by Scarlet Suen for The Sampler Life SAL. I have a couple more gold motifs to add and then onto the purple. I am fairly confident I will finish this one this month. I do need to unroll this so I can get a photo of the whole thing and remind myself what it looks like.
I should pull It's About Time out and get a few stitches into it this evening, but I am beat. I had some minor surgery last Wednesday. Few days off work and, because of my killer commute, a couple weeks of telework just to be sure everything stays together and where it's supposed to be. I had no trouble getting up and getting going this morning, but around 2:30 this afternoon my energy level fell through the floor and I almost fell asleep on my computer. Granted the project I'm working on isn't the most exciting thing ever dreamed up, but it isn't something that normally puts me to sleep. All that round about to say, I don't think I will be doing any stitching tonight. But as I have two weeks of evenings ahead of me, I'm not going to be too upset about losing tonight.
