Progress and TUSAL's

I worked on Winter Unicorn for an evening and was quite pleased with my progress.  It is certainly a lot quicker stitching with one thread than two.  I seem to be the queen of the twisted thread which really slows me down.  I love how delicate the background is going to look when it is finished.


A little bit of progress on Home of a Needlworker.  I discovered that I had used the wrong green for the border.  Never mind though, it makes it more personal!


As all that blue is from Cinderella, I thought she should make an appearance in my TUSAL photo too. I am amazed at how many orts are in my jar already.  I suppose though with having been off work for the last 2 weeks, I have had the chance to stitch more than I normally would.  Shame I have to go back!

Winter Unicorn is beautiful. Great start and progress on your other wips. Your ort jar is prof of all the stitching you managed to to get done while off work. Enjoy the rest of your time off.
love Annette

Winter Unicorn looks great! The colours are lovely.
I'm off work myself now for two weeks so I'm looking forward to all the stitching I'll get to do :) It is horrible when we have to go back though...work really interferes with my stitching *lol*

You are making great progress on everything. I haven't been off work the last two weeks, but have been working from home, and the extra time has made a huge difference in my stitching progress. As you said, shame we have to go back.
