I finished part 1 of the 4 part Mystery SAL I'm doing with the Wonderful Cross Stitch World Yahoo group. The chart (named Back on the Road Again) was designed by Helga Mandl and Barbara Ana and was only available to group members (sign up is over). This design will not be released to the public, so I'm thrilled I was able to participate in this wonderful project. I love the colors in this design and am stitching it on 14 count dirty aida. Am anxiously awaiting for the release of part 2, so I can get busy stitching it. :DI've also been diligently stitching on the cowgirl piece I'm doing for my grandgirl's 4th birthday in February. I'm stitching this on 14ct Silkweaver Opalescent Aida. I actually have more stitched than what the picture shows, but haven't had time to take a new pic. I've now got all the face stitched and most of her hair. I've changed some colors on this also. Rather than DMC 3865 (white) for the dress, I used DMC 4190 (a variegated thread). And I'm using DMC 780 (reddish brown) for the hair instead of DMC 310 (black). Better get back to my needle now. Thanks to everyone for visiting my blog. I appreciate all your interest and comments. Thank You so much!!!
