Am I almost there yet?

No... not quite! But, here is some more of Mystery IX. I think it will take all weekend to finish it, if even then. Tomorrow we will finish our Christmas celebrations as my brother, his wife and our nieces are back from Cape Cod now... and I will be watching the Patriots game too... but I will try to get some good stitching time in as well. Then I can finally start Part 4 of Medieval Town Mandala.

Pretty good stash day today. Along with my new issue of Cross Stitch Gold, I also received the FOTM from Heaven Lee Creations... it is Holly Leaf 32 ct metallic lugana. When they first showed me on the invoice that this is the fabric I would be receiving this month, I did not think I was going to like it. However, it turns out that it is so very similar to Silkweaver's Tranquility in their Reflections line. Very nice. And, a new color from Sugar Maple Fabrics as well, which I purchased direct from her ebay store - MacMillan belfast - this is a lovely light lavender with blue and brown mottled in... super pretty!

Mike called the framer today - Celtic Band Sampler, Garden Bounty and The Marriage of Minds should be ready tomorrow afternoon. I hope so!!!!!!!!

Stitched on today: Mystery IX
