And That's a Row, Folks!

Pages 11 and 12 of Adrift are done!  I started page 11 on Oct 24th, and finished page 12 on Nov 9.  Not too shabby!

I even had a large flat table and two friends willing to hold her flat at each end (thank you, Rika and Ashley) and I finally have a decent photo for you! 

I can't believe how beautiful she is so far.  Although I can say that updating my status bar by 8000 stitches, only to see a 3% increase in my status is a bit of an anti-climax.  But 34% is still pretty good.

I'm off to stitch a page of Winter Hat Owl now.  I'd post a photo, but there is literally nothing to see but blue.  But I'm starting a new row after this one, so there might be some hat to show off soon.  I will, of course, keep you posted!

Also, my sister sent me a photo of  an angel I stitched for her a few years ago, before I started this blog.  I believe she is the Peace Angel.  Stitched 3 over 2 on the last bit of navy blue Lugana there was at the shop.  A friend had actually bought the fabric, but she graciously let me have it.  (Thanks Kari).

The blue doesn't really show up in the picture, but she is on a dark blue background and framed beautifully.   She now lives above my sisters bed.

Anyway, that's all I have for you for now.   I will hopefully start posting row 3 shortly.
