Yes I am still alive

Wow. It has been along time since I posted. As one of only a few male cross stitchers with blogs I should be more consistent.

So what have I been up to...

I am finishing Joan Elliot's Water Wonderland...

I did mine on light blue aida 14ct Aida. About 1/2 the backstitching is done and then the beads. I'm shooting for Christmas since it is a gift. I am dreading doing the French knots :-(

I am also working on some Christmas jar toppers things for my wifey. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to keep the edges of the Aida from fraying after I put them on the jars?

Of course I have 5 other projects I have started and plenty in the wings.

Bye for now...

BTW: Have a Happy Christmas!

Ahhhh the dreaded french knot. Here's a trick if you don't know it already using a milliners needle makes french knots easier to stitch and much neater

Thank you! I will try that.

Using beads make french knots easier for me, I'm just saying ;-)
You may want to try Fray-check on the edges.

I'm one of those weird people who actually love doing french knots. They're so easy once you get started. I'm looking forward to see it finished.
