Wow Cindy, this is a great progress too! You'll get there like Diane's project. It is a gorgeous design! You see your design grow by every stitch you make!

Yoyo said...

Oh that is great progress!! I'm just loving seeing all the great stitching...and you saw, we have a finish already!!! Wow some really fast stitchers. (I'm such a slow poke I am really impressed when the piece seems to go very fast.)

Suzie said...

Cindy, for not liking the fabric, you are making great strides in this piece! It is awesome!! I love the colors and the shading, and your stitching looks fine! Congats on the progress!!

Mich said...

It becomes more and more beautiful every week !!!

Carolyn NC said...

Cindy, this looks great! And yes, the reindeer is adorable!

Laura said...

It looks wonderful, Cindy! I have heard that this one has an unusually high amount of confetti, even for a HAED, but the result is just stunning.

You're making great progress! The detail is amazing! I am really enjoying watching this piece grow.

Joke said...

You are getting there girl, just take your time and enjoy!

INGRID said...

super progress , i love st. Nick in his study very match en thats a wonderful detail in the globe !

Marie said...

Good evening Cindy !
I want to tell you how much I'm waiting for your progress every week ! You have chosen a wonderful chart which I really love to see coming to life. The owl looks so sweet and real... Every detail in this universe of St Nick is precious ! Like the reindeer that your wonderful work shows. I was thinking that this reindeer was on a rocking chair and that the globe is just a little bit more on the left... am I wrong ?!
We are so lucky to see such a wonderful work growing !
Thank you and have a nice week-end !

Oh.my.goodness! Cindy, that is just gorgeous. Isn't it hard to put down? So much to see in this WIP, but you are so right. Quite a bit of confetti in Old St Nick. :) You know when it's really amazing? After you stitch on it for a while and you back up and look at it. Stunning! But that's probably true of each and every HAED out there! You will get where I'm at in no time and it will be so much fun having company. Great job!!!!

Carla said...

oh yes, there is a reindeer!! Nice progress, Cindy!

Gabi said...

Big hugs to everyone of you precious friends! Thank you for your sweetness:) Suzie...I'm going to quit whining (lol)about my fabric;)...I'm used to it now, but next time, I'll just pick something with a stiffer hand.
Marie, If I look at the globe too much, my eyes play tricks on me...lol, but I like to think there is a reindeer...we'll see about the rocking chair:)
I was already excited and having fun stitching my HAED (started 1/2/09),,,but you guys have made it even more special for me!!

Vickie said...

Cindy isn't is wonderful to have all the little squares filled in and you start to see the picture emerge. Looking good.
