IHSW December 2011 update

Hello Again,

Here are some updates...

1. I had started to stitch a small thing from Joan Elliots Wit and Wisdom book.


http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cross-Stitch-Wit-Wisdom-Brighten/dp/0715324764/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1324279633&sr=1-1

The original design was...


As tends to be the case, I didnt have the colours that the pattern required and so I used my own choice - not too different, and I think it works well.


2. I also worked on the Noahs Ark that had helped me  to get my mojo back...

Before IHSW...

After IHSW...


3. I worked on the Geisha girl and am hoping to get it finished by the end of this week. It is a bit bitty, due to the nature of my sewing style! 

Here it is before IHSW...


Here it is after IHSW...


Its hard to see which bit has been done, so here is a close up of the bottom left! Did you notice? lol!



Off to check everyone else'd updates :) and then back to stitching.
