My Latest Finish

and my newest start:

And now its done!

Fridays with Deb
Is stitching with a deadline not your thing? (It's definitely not mine!) Stop by on Friday afternoons while I host "Stitching with Deb".  It started with "Everything Coco" from Kimberly Ann Needlepoint
and has moved on to "What's That?!" from JP Needlepoint.  I took our class with Sandra Arthur from Duo Designs and loved it so much I decided to make it my next "deadline" project.  I just finished succulent #5 and am now on to number 6.
