Part Two of SAL & a LHN finish



Hi there,
another visit from our grandsons has come to an end. This time, daddy & mommy were here as well thou!! This is the first we have seen our son since he came home from deployment, so it was a special time with him.
I didn't get a lot of stitching done, but I did manage to do some each & every night or day...
On Sat., I got part two of the SAL on the Novalee blog. (see my last post for the link) I sat down after the boys & our son & DIL went to bed & had it done in less than an hour.
I also worked on the May LHN monthly sampler throughout the week. I finally finished it today. This was finish #8 of the 15 new project challenge!!! It is finish #11 for the year.
Tonight, I will start my ornament for March. I am excited to see how this one turns out. I am going out of my comfort zone a little with the fabric!!!
Thanks to all who stop by & read my blog & extra thanks to those of you who leave comments....they mean so much to me!

The two finishes are so pretty.
Some of the best stitches are done when everyone is sleeping.
That's good you got to spend time with your son and his family.
I can't wait to see your March ornie, I am sure you will do fine with the fabric.

I also am doing the Novalee Easter SAL....and loving it. How are you going to finish it? Frame, pillow or hanging?
Nice stitching on both.

Wow, so many finsihes already this year. And the latest two look really great.
Your challenge is halfway done, what a success for you. I'm not as successful as you are because I always see a lot of things that need to be stitched in between, lol.
