Almost there!


I finished all of the white around the stag and all of the pink areas. I was able to finish all but a tiny bit of the white ground as well.  That will be where I start tomorrow.

Pink and white


I am back to stitching after all the festivities!  It was a warm and sunny day here yesterday and everyone
had a great time!  I am working on the ground below the stag and have about half of it done.

Moving down


I added more green and red plaid, finished the curve of the frame and started across the bottom.  I filled in around the stag's tail and under his leg a little.  Last, I did the 3 rows of basketweave in white down to the frame.

A Blue Russin

I received my May issue of Needlepointers this week.  I have enjoyed reading Jane's (of the Chilly Hollow blog) article!  As you know she is stitching one of the Russian Santas by Leigh Designs on her blog-

The article presents her ideas and what she chose up to the point that the magazine had to go to print!

Nice job, Jane!

Jumping around


I finished the white area above the back and neck and a bit around the tail.  I then added the frame down to the curve.  Last, more green and red plaid to the start of the heel!

Working the middle


I am working in the middle, filling in the ground area in basketweave.  I am also working down the right side for the finisher.

Working down the side


Time to get the left side worked down a little further.  More of the red and green plaid are done.  You can see the start of the curve of the heel of the stocking!
