I have been stitching and here is the latest-Jardin Prive Christmas is my bedtime stitching and it is coming along nicely.
Snowflake Girl is also coming along. Once upon a time, Gay Ann Rogers must have taught this piece as a class because her instructions have "pre-work" included. So, my current goal is to get the pre-work finished. Mostly it is outlining and as you can see it is not quite done yet. I don't know what the smudges are up by her head-they are not on the canvas.
I also wanted to share my new Dazor light/magnifier. It is only new to me--it is a "vintage" (read old) light and it sits on coasters to make it easy to re-position it. See below for my current stitchy nook. I'm not sure if the magnifier is 3X or 5X, but it makes the work so much easier to see!
I also think Paradise Lost will be stitched under this light. Oh, speaking of Paradise Lost, the new fabric is here and on the stretcher bars, I will have the official start very soon!
One more update-I am participating in 2 Christmas exchanges this year! I know that is nothing to most of my wonderful readers, but they will be my first ones ever! So I am already looking, planning, well, you know....
