Stitching Progress

It's bright & early the Monday morning after our IHSW.  I know I'm supposed to be posting pics of what I worked on over the weekend, but can't do that.  Why you may ask?   Because I decided to work on a Scrabble-inspired piece that will be a new pattern in my shop and am at the point that I have all the words done, which I don't want to reveal until the piece is completely finished.  Here is a picture of where I started on Friday night:


Since I took this picture I was able to get all of the words done, more of the white backstitching that will separate all the different spaces on the "board", as well as more of the individual blocks.  When I went to bed last night I had only 21 more blocks to go and am hoping to have it completed by Wednesday or  Thursday night of this week with the pattern being released in my shop by the weekend.

If you're interested in seeing other pics of my WIPs (works in progress), I have an album I've been doing on Facebook titled 365 Days of Cross Stitch - 2012.  I may not post my pics each day, but do take them and upload them just as quickly as I can.

Until we meet again...Happy Stitching!

    1. Thanks so much Joysze! I got quite a bit more done on it tonight. I have 14 blocks left and the rest of the white backstitching. Well on track to have it finished by Thursday night so I can release the pattern in my shop. Stay tuned...
