Wedding Sampler & Santa Updates

Last weekend was a 12hr stitch at my LNS. I couldn't seem to stay on one project for long that day but did get some progress on my canvaswork and some great progress on the wedding piece for my friends.
I was lazy and didn't take it off the scrollbars... forgive me. It's stitching up quite quick which is nice. Here it is to date:


I have also been picking up my Mill Hill Santa when it's later at night or I'm just tired.
It's so nice to have one project that is simple, especially when I'm fighting with learning canvas.
Here is the Santa to date:




Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Adore the Mill Hill kits, they are so fun and easy. The wedding sampler is looking nice. Can't wait to see more of your canvas project either.

The wedding sampler is already looking elegant, and I already love perforated paper and Mill Hill, so I adore the work you're doing your Santa!

Beautiful progress. A 12-hour stitch-in... what a dream (as long as the chairs are comfy).

Both projects are looking great! I have never done a Mill Hill. I love the way yours is looking. A 12 hour stitch-in. Not sure I could sit that long. :)

Patches said...

Wow- 12 hours is a long time to stitch.

The mill hill is so cute.

The wedding piece is coming right along. Sometimes it's nice to stitch in hand and not have to have hoop or scrolls to deal with. My Mill Hill RR is coming home soon!!! I have a canvas piece I just need to get the right size stretcher bars to buy.
