I have a picture of Janet Casey's Snow Cone Santa which I have finished stitching, but the computer seems to have eaten it. Maybe I will try again tomorrow.

Next week the group is starting Candy Cane Santa. Sam wants to do him so I may have to wait as I only have 1 set of 12 inch stretcher bars...Yes, I could buy another set, but I would rather wait and spend my money on fibers or kits. I am sure I can find something else to occupy me from my stash.
I am debating on finishing this guy myself. He has so many curves that I worry about being able to do it...I will put in some tent stitches this time...I do not want it to unravel!

I did sew the cording around the front, because I wanted to cover as many mistakes as possible. But the back was another matter! These last two pictures do not show the horrible job I truly did.
I ended up having to add another piece of cording around the back to cover some of the problems.

I managed to finish the last of the 3 Barbara's Patchwork Garden that I started. I just realized this is the red one! I finished it a while ago. I will try to clear my brain and post my black one tomorrow! The design is on the ANG website, if you are interested.

I decided the piece looked too boring, so I ripped the watercolors out and used a more variegated piece. I also added the green metallic to the center and green floss (DMC 911) to the one corner doing basketweave. I still need to add the Impressions over the top of the center square once I finish the rest of the center. I am way behind everyone in Gay Ann's classroom, but I am learning so much as I stitch.
It is interesting how choosing a certain piece of the variegated watercolours changes the whole piece. By adding the green floss, I have pulled in a little more of the green in the watercolours. It is fun to watch the piece develop.

Let me see if I can explain... If you look at the photo above, you will see both green and blue used in the same row. I am trying to decide which color I want to dominate. I love the purple and the varigated, so I will keep stitching and decide where to go from here.

Here are my color choices:
Watercolours-Appalachia, DMC #5-798 & 327, Kreinik # 8-008 & 006, Gold Rush 14-216C, and Gold Rush 18-GD33C
I am stitching on 18 count mono pale blue canvas. Because my LNS didn't have the exact fibers needed, I will have to do some improvising. I have found that Gay Ann's patterns lend themselves to this.
