WIPocalypse March 2012

Ahhhh, the sweet feeling of progress!!!!!  I focused almost all of my time on the Donna Kooler All Creatures Great and Small sampler.  I need to get this finished in the next week to week and a half so I can have it professionally framed and ready for the fundraiser on April 22nd.  I hope that someone in the silent auction loves the piece as much as I have loved working on it.

Here is what it looked like from the last update:

I did all the back stitching on everything below the row of cats.  I also backstitched a couple of the cats but am missing a color to finish the second and fourth cat.  I know I should go and get it but I'm sure I'm going to run out of at least one other color so I figured I'd just make a note of where I need to finish some stitches and keep on going.  I then started stitching on the top half of the design and ended up here.

I did work a little on the monogram but not much.  Here is how it started:
And here is where I put it down to concentrate on the sampler:
I know, I can hardly see any progress.  This is a quick stitch and as soon as I get the sampler done and off to the framers I will be able to focus on this and several other projects.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching!!!!
