An update and a current WIP

I thought I would wait a while to post an update on my Giraffe Silhouette by Kai, but I love it and wanted to share it.  I don't know why I didn't think there would be a lot of confetti, but there is.  Fortunately also some small blocks of color which are a bit of a respite.  This is really a lot of fun to stitch.  This is page 1 and 2 as the first giraffe silhoutte goes down the middle of both pages so I have two pages going at the same time.  I often go over the middle if it is only a few stitches on the next page, but this was pretty constant.  I'm not sure if it will stay where it is in my rotation or show up a bit earlier.  Depends on how loud a giraffe can holler I guess.

This is the piece I am currently working on: Dancing with the Cat by Sandra Kuck .  It will eventually be a gift for my niece, who is now 23 but danced ballet from the age of 3 through high school and has two cats that she adores.  Couldn't imagine a better gift.  It is stitched 1 over 1 full crosses on 25 ct lugana or jobelan.  (I can't ever remember which is which).  Two pages finished and now working on page 3.

I think that everytime I post an update I will also post the current WIP so that I can introduce you to the variety of HAEDs I'm doing. 
Thanks for looking

your giraffe has beautiful bright colors although it is already very fun to watch. When your little ballerina she is very beautiful, she goes with "ballerina sisters" that I embroidered. Very beautiful models. Good small cross. Florence
