Recent finish and a new start

It feels like it's been a bit since I've been able to post a finish, but I know it's only been about a month. I did this one, USA Squared, as part of my ILCS Round Robin. I thought it came out pretty cute. I'll get the package in the mail to Vickie in the next day or so.

As if this wasn't enough, I also have a new start. I think I must be crazy, because this one is a BAP. I've already got one started in Mystic Stitch White Tiger, but I couldn't resist this SAL at Kustom Krafts. A friend of mine is into 'pathways' and I think this will look great on her wall when I'm done. We get one page per month, and so far we've gotten two pages, but I only just started page 1. I'm stitching this at work, and I really need to get my Q-Snaps here, but I think it will be beautiful when it's done. Love the fall colors. What do you think?

First finish of 2011

Just a quick post to show the picture of my first 2011 finish. This is from the new RR that I'm participating in on ILCS. Cindi chose several Lizzie Kate patterns that will make a whole piece when complete. Given the fact that I have seven furbabies and multiple fish, I thought "Be Kind to Animals" was a good choice for me. This was my first experience with overdyed threads. It took some getting used to as I'm not used to making each 'X' individually, but I like the effect of it.
