If you noticed I have been blogging more frequently, it is because my wonderful hubby gave me a new laptop for Christmas. (We returned the one with the broken mouse pad and replaced it with a different laptop.) He spoils me.
Last week, I only managed about 20 x-stitches on my Santa and the Mouse Ornament, the freebie chart from Heaven and Earth Designs. I could not see the progress, so I could not bring myself to share a picture.
Last night, I spent a couple of hours adding a few more stitches. The dangling threads indicate this is a "confetti" section, using several colors for shading. Working on such a tiny scale, I found it difficult to spot any blank squares. So, I tend to finish the section I am working on and then leave the thread in the next area it will be used (if it is close by.) I suppose the advantage is that seeing all of these loose threads bugs me just enough to motivate me to to finish that section up as soon as possible.
For comparison, here is what this section looked like on December 31st. It is hard to tell that I added over 100 x-stitches, isn't it?! However, the fluffy ball at the end of Santa's hat is almost done now!
Now I am off to check out Day 4 of the Tammy 4 all Seasons Blog Hop over at Sew We Quilt.
And then I will be off to work on my project for the We Support You Blog Hop. It is only 15 days away and I still have much to do.
