Wow! It's already August!!!

Hello Family, Friends and Stitching Buddies! 

August is upon us already! So you know what that means ... 4 months until Xmas!!! Holiday gifts that we'll be making should be being started soon. Well unless you're like some of my stitching friends that stitch faster than lightening lol. As for me, well of course I have things I'd like to get made to give as gifts for the holidays. But before I can get started on those, I have a couple of pieces that I MUST get finished before or by the end of the month, the surprise gift that you've been seeing me working on and Henry. After those then I'll figure out what gifts I can work on. 

As for the surprise gift, it's coming along great I think. I have made some good progress on it and finished all the cross stitching on the Cowboys helmet and now working on the backstitching. Here are a few update photos ... 




As I said, I'm working on the backstitching of this helmet now, although I haven't been able to work on it in a couple of days. I really love stitching this piece. I'm super excited about it. I hope my friends that I'm stitching it for like it. Obviously they won't even see it until after the baby is born since I can't add the actual birth-date and weight and length until after she is born. I've been teasing and torturing my friend about her surprise gift lol. It's making her crazy but excited too lol. I haven't told her anything about it, not even that I'm stitching the gift. Although I'm sure she knows that part. I told her I'm making it, so that could mean I'm either stitching or sewing it. But really sewing doesn't take near as long to do in most cases. 

So what do you think of the piece so far? The reason for the color differences in the photos is bcuz the middle one I used the scanner to take the picture, and the other two I used my cell phone camera. Maybe next time I'll use my regular camera and see how it comes out. 

Well that's all for now! Happy Stitching Everyone!

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥
