My pretties from Ginas Fobs and Froggers and I just love them. Made two scissor fobs before these arrived and plan to do more with the hope of maybe selling some, but want to give them to my nieces at Christmas time. If I get enough done then they can pick and hopefully find what they like. I don't, however, have any plans to make needle minders.

Update: New start on Hometown Christmas from Tilton yesterday. 1 over 1 full cross stitch on 25ct. Very long way to go, if my eyes can hold out on this fabric count.

Also, working on Thanksgiving, a freebie from Tilton. This one is 2 over 1 on 18ct Aida, so will go much faster and it's a much smaller chart.

I have more on the go but not going to put pictures up yet, will wait until I pull them out again. Never can figure out a good rotation system for myself. Did 2 scissor fobs and have bought more beads, charms and other goodies for making more. Will put pictures up of those when I get more done. Lots and lots of charts I'd love to do and have in my folders. I doubt I'll ever get to all of them so I think of them as buying art, although there will be some I will get to and hopefully finish so they can find a home on my walls. I'd also like to find some smaller projects to do for Christmas and I'm sure I have patterns in books right here, just need to go through my stash to find those.

Going to see how much I can get filled in today for the cross stitch group Tuesday challenge. Would like to see one page finished on Fairy of the Forest. Also, can't wait to get out of the darker colors and into some lighter ones with this.

Oh! There You Are! by Tilton. I think I started this last month, but didn't do much, just a tiny bit of one page. Below is where I've got so far for the USA Cross Stitching Group weekend challenge. Kind of nice to work with some blues and not dark colors. Picture of project came out a bit on the dark side, and generally it shows up too bright. Probably be a good idea if I started posting my starts, progress, and finishes here to give me a record of what I'm working and when.

Started Fairy of the Forest from Artecy, not sure what date so need to start keeping track better. Would also help to see a before and after to help notice the progress made.

My progress on the HAED Star Weaver. Second one wouldn't load in for some reason. I started this one approximately a week and a half ago.
And the Magic Dragon update.
I was thinking I should go back to the dragon since Star Weaver was only going to be stitched this past weekend but I'm kinda into it right now so think the best way to go is with the one I'm enjoying the most. Just the blue floss but it's sort of a no brainer. :) Maybe that's where I need to be at this moment. Only a little bit of counting but the grid lines help keep me on track.
