Progress photo Friday

Yes! Hold on to your hats, I am actually going to post photos. Well, one photo. I am not quite to the point of actually posting a photo of Cheryl's Bouquet quite yet. I'm almost there, though, and if I keep on it I think I may be able to post something by the end of The weekend. So, keep your fingers crossed. Today, my goal is to work on my SAL project, as I didn't work on it at all yesterday. But I think today I am going to have a complete stitchy day, I will work on project after project all day long. And first off I am going to make myself work on that stinkin' eagle, and get some of it done. I hate that it feels like it's hanging over my head, mocking me!!! So today I will conquer it!!! LOL!


So, here is the last progress photo, from before we took our little break from it:









And here is my current progress:




So, there yah go. sorry the photos look a bit rough, I think it's the texture of the fabric, but none the less, there it is! Finally a progress photo! You can see I worked on the dreaded wing quite a bit, and the other night when I started getting frustrated with those browns and I felt like throwing it across the room, I just worked a bit on the wording, as that is very easy, and a nice break from all the tediousness of the many browns in the wing of the bird. Well, not much else to share at this point. I am eager get myself situated on the couch and put in some good stitching time today. I have been a bit preoccupied with my writing as of late, as I shared a few posts back, and that has taken up quite a bit of my time, but I feel as though I am over my little blogging and stitching slump, so you should see more of me here! and thank you everyone for hanging in there with me during this slow time and for encouraging me during my slump!

You got a lot done on the eagle, his wing is looking great. Cheryl's bouquet is such a pretty piece, I've seen it on a couple of other people's blogs lately. What colors are you doing it in? Looking forward to seeing a picture of it when you post one. Thanks for visiting my blog.

I'm sure working on those browns are tedious, but it's looking really good! Worth the effort :)

What a project! It looks no piece of cake...
I'm eager to see a pic of your bouquet for Cheryl project (not a piece of cake either...). It's on my to-do list. I'm still thinking of what threads I should use...
Lana, thank you for your kind comments on my blog, they have been very helpful to me.
Take care!
