WIPocalypse April 2012 - With a FINISH!!!! YAY!!

I have a FINISH!!!! YAY!!!  I finished the Donna Kooler All Creatures Great and Small Sampler for the Best in Show charity fundraiser.  Here is what the sampler looked like when I posted for March.

And here is how it looked when I took it to the framers.  I'll make sure to post a finished framed picture on the Yuku forums. I really hope that someone likes it and bids on it during the silent action.  I think it is adorable!!

The other project I worked on was the pink monogram.  Here is how it looked when I posted in March.
I decided that I didn't like the way the medium and dard pinks were looking so I frogged all of those stitches and reversed the colors.  I'm much happier now with the way the colors all go together in this configuration.  Here is how it looks now.

I feel that I made much more progress this month, it might just be because I can say that I finished something.  I'm hoping to have the pink monogram done by next post.  Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching everyone!

Congratulations on the beautiful finish! I'm sure you will have lots of bids - it is adorable.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I haven't worked on my Spring sampler too much lately ... the progress always feels so slow. (I know you know what I mean.)
