While watching on Saturday and Sunday, I managed to finish two pieces.
This first piece is one I did for a quilt to be sewn for the World of Charity Stitching Yahoo group. Stitchers are able to use their own colors - I chose DMC tangerines (740 and 742) for this combination. The pattern is a free cross stitch chart from Loretta Oliver at Stitching The Night Away. The stitch count is 45 x 45, and I used 28-count white evenweave. I am not much of a sewer so I send coordinating fabric to the wonderful women who make up the quilts.

My second finish was Stella Polaris which I did in the Mulberry colorway for the DD who is a huge purple fan. This is a cyberclass through Shining Needle Society. The designers are Carole Lake and Michael Boren of StitchPlay Designs. The Mulberry colorway uses Watercolors and Waterlillies in Mulberry, along with Soie Crystal, Grandeur, Elegance, Vineyard Silks, Kreinik Metallics and Bijou in complementary pinks and purples. I have the canvas and threads to stitch this in the Savannah colorway as well.

I am now stitching on Achoo! for my sister, the veterinarian. I will post pictures once it starts looking like something!
Until next time, happy stitching.
