Folk Art Angel #3 Update

I know that it's been a while since I posted. Here is an update of my Folk Art Angel #3...


She just needs the rest of the French Knots done. (don't get me started on French Knots...uggg)

Our soldier is home for the holidays. He will be deployed to Afghanistan after Christmas. It is good to have him and his friends around. The house was getting too quiet :-) Before he arrived, he tried to cut his finger off while camping. Cutting wood while it was in his hand.....wow.

I am done shopping for Christmas. My wife gets to do the rest. I do all the wrapping though. The christmas tree and the house lights are up (mostly)... so... Bring on Santa!!!

Merry Christmas to all my bloggers!!

Happy Stitching

Chris

Chris she's looking good! I use colonial knots instead of French knots they look the same to me, just easier!
