Secret Santa and Progress Pics

Some progress made on my Prairie Schooler angel. I hope to finish a wing tonight. I also stitched a smallie fob for a tiny present; which design came from the PS's Christmas Noah's Ark design from some time ago. I love the animals and the birds and swans on this design grouping.

For our And They Sinned SAL, I just want to share some progress pictures with you that I thought might be fun to see. We're getting back together with renewed hope. So, any of you who are interested in joining us...please email me and I'll link you with Kathy who's our organizing leader. This is really a marginal amount of progress in 2007, but I'm hoping to kick up the volume in 2008. Some of our SAL group are just starting! AnnieBees asked me which threads I'm using...I've used only GAST, which I love for this piece. I've worked it the whole time on stretcher bars and frame...it's so big and has kept clean and neat this way. I was happy to allow my LNS to cut my fabric exactly to size and to whip stitch the edges for me....that way, all I had to do was take it home and start stitching. I didn't want to be incumbered by trying to measure out the long size for myself.

And now the Mystery of the Season!!! The Secret Santa giftie! Yes, I was just amazed and puzzled and tickled to receive one in the mail when I got home last week. I've done some sleuthing and I'm pretty sure I know who the Secret Santa is...but, I'm not absolutely certain. So, I'm holding my peace and seeing how the Mystery continues to develop before Christmas. Who knows, maybe the little Santa has more tricks up her sleeve!! I don't know what to think!!! :0 At any rate, Santina, thank you so much for including me!

Bye for now!! Hugs to you all, Deb

ATS looks great. That is one BAP that I don't think I will ever do, even though I love the design. Keep up the good work.

I love how your PS pieces are coming along - just beautiful! ATS is amazing! I want to start that one so bad, but need to gather supplies and finish a few other (or 10) pieces first. That secret santa has been very busy!
