Wolf at 10 hours

Here is the wolf at 10 hours. It is coming right along. Although I had wanted to have a little more done on it by now, I think I will be able to meet my goal of having this finished by the end of January.

Well, that is the start of it. I want to finish at least 25 projects this year. Some of these listed are actually older WIP, so really do need to get stitched. Poor things probably think they have been forgotten.

Wolf at 5 hours

Here is five hours worth of work (not including frogging-time.)

Wolf in Progress

The pattern for this project is a kit, as mentioned in my earlier post. Here is what the finished piece will look like. So far, I have worked on this for only about 5 hours. I was working on it late one night and ended up switching two colors. Needless to say, I had a bit of frogging to do..LOL The corrections made, the stitching is coming along. My son keeps track of my stitching, as he knows this is for him. He is actually the one who picked it out. I am not one for collecting wolves. I prefer bunnies and dragons. Once Peter saw this, he wanted it, and I bought it.

Cross Stitch Journal

I have started stitching again. Like an old friend, all my stash was there waiting for me, beckoning me to once again pick up my needle.

In December, I finished a few pieces, you can view them on my personal webpage, located at

Right now I am working on a few pieces. I am hoping to finish a small piece for an exchange today. I am also working on a pattern designed by Teresa Wentzler, called "Above the Clouds."

I will post pictures of my WIP once I have a little more done.

Along with the TW design, I am working on a wolf for my son. This is a kit and is starting to take shape. I will be glad when it is finished so that I can move on to another unfinished project.

My stitching goal for 2007 is to finish as many older pieces that are already started as possible. I still plan to do some new pieces, but not until at least 5 of the older ones are finished.
