Progress photos

Well! I finally beat my slump on Snow Valley Express! Between yesterday and today I think I got at least 5 or 6 hours in on it, and aside from the back stitching, which I started today and a handful of cross stitches, in the lower left hand side around the tracks and a tuft of snow in the trees, I have just about got this paged nailed! I am thinking that I may be able to start page two of this before my first thought of date-next month. I know I won't get much stitching in this weekend as we are leaving tonight to go to FL, but I have seriously been neglecting my reading so I will use this weekend to do that, and when I get home I will be putting some serious time into this piece. To tell you the truth I thought the backstitch on this puppy would be a pain, because there is a lot of detail, but it really isn't, not yet anyway, it's been pretty smooth so far.

And next up, is my progress picture of my SAL project. Which we agreed that we would share photos on Friday's, but seeing as how I won't be home tomorrow I decided to show this weeks progress now. (Hope you don't mind Cindy!) For the most part I worked on the mountain range...I really love those colors, and I put in a bit more of the verse as well.
So, I hope you all have a great weekend. I don't know if I will be able to post or anything while I'm gone for the next 4 days, because I may not have internet access, but to tell you the truth I am probably not even going ot take any stitching with me...Well, I may, just for the cause of because, but I doubt I will pull it out and work on it. I don't know what this weekend will entail, really. So, I will take it just incase, I may have some time. See yah here when I get back!
