Well - nothing really new to report. Still working away at my Mystery CAL
I'm on still on clue 4 and 5 (working them both together). Clue 7 came out yesterday and it is a border but I have to join the squares (clue 6) first. Seems like other folks are working up Clue 7 pretty quick. Perhaps I can catch up soon. I don't like being behind but sometimes it just happens.
I have found my next project after the baby afghan that I am also working on. It will be a cross stitch project. I haven't done cross stitch in a few years. I had a completed project done that looked like this (without the frame).
It took me a long time to make it and all I needed to get framed but it is now gone :( (Long story)
Anyway...so after I finish this afghan and the baby afghan. I think this will be my next project
This cross stitch pattern looks so much like my dearly beloved departed dog, Thatcher
I've seen counted cross stitch patterns of Yorkies before but they are a bit frou-frou, with pointed ears, long brushed silky hair with a bow on top of their head. That was NOT my Thatcher, he was as floppy ear, wild, wonky playful bundle - nothing frou-frou about him. This pattern looks so much like him. It looks a bit challenging but perhaps that is what I need - something challenging to occupy the mind.
It will be a good while before I get around to it because I am going to finish these afghans first. However, the idea of starting on this project makes me really excited to finish the afghans - but I have at least another month of clues from the Mystery CAL.
