WIP Progress: Photos to follow

Well, I have added some cross-stitching finishes to my accomplishments this month:
Homespun Elegance's 2001 Santa Christmas ornament Toy Noah and 1999 Santa Christmas ornamment Great Good Cheer. I'll post photos once they are assembled and finish-finished.

I have also made some progress on Workbasket's Quaker Pig. I rather like the Caron fiber I am using: Wildflower Camouflage. The perle adds a certain texture to the piece. The colorway of saturated rose-beige and olive green will work well in the final quilt and still has enough of a pig color to give a hint of realism. It suggests a pig that's been doing a bit of wallowing in the mud. Once I get the central Quaker motif fully stitched I'll post a photo since it really doesn't look very interesting at the moment.

And I have kitted up two more Christmas ornaments using the remnants of my Silkweaver 40 ct. Mississippi Mud limited edition linen. Love that fabric :>) and I'll really miss it when it's used up. But I do have some 40ct in another limited edition linen [Alabama Clay which is a few shades darker] that I'll enjoy as well. Lately I have been ordering 36 and 40ct fabrics in my FOTM plan since I have all the 28ct that I'll be needing for the forseeable future.

Hi Riona!
Just wanted to let you know that I received Rabbit Roundel on Friday. Thank you so much! I love it!
I have a small blue and white bedroom in my house. I think I am going to use it for the top of a band box. Of course I have to find one that is the right size and stain the bottom blue. Details!
Thank you again!
