progress pics

I have put about 3 nights work into The Hillside Travelers from Little House Needleworks. I am using DMC only, except for the tree, I had enough of that cresent color to do the trees.

This is Happy Jack from the Halloween issue Just Cross Stitch. He is soo colorful!! I love to work on him. He is also done with DMC, and I plan to use some sparklies on him with the teeth and the green spots.

And this is Hope by Brooke Nolan, also from the Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue. She is gorgeous!!! Just a note, the BS on her face is off, but there is a correction chart on the JCS website. I am sorry to say that I emailed Brooke Nolan about that and asked her another question over a week ago and she never got back to me. :( But I still love this beautiful girl, she is lovely.

I fell in love with this kit from Lanarte, Japanese Girl today:

She is pricey so I will be saving her for a Christmas gift. She is done on black, ack!! But I don't care really' I have looked for just the right Japanese or Chinese design to do for a long time and this is it. She is up at ABC Stitch Therapy and AStitching Bits and Bobs and of course the Lanarte site.

I didn't get a thing done on The Hedgehog..:( Hopefully next post will have some good progress. :)
