Update

OK I know I'm late posting my update but I have been fighting with a laptop problem and Dell Support. They are great but they can't seem to get this laptop fixed and they have already replaced the memory, hard drive and mother board. Don't know why they can't fix it, heck there is nothing left to replace.  Oh well on to my update.

So last weekend I worked on "Pot 4 Dickie" and "Count Your Blessings", poor "Mary Wigham" stayed in the basket. Here are my progress pictures, Hope to finish CYB in a day or two than get to "MW" and the "Celtic Wedding Sampler". 

 Count Your Blessings , have to finish the fence and lettering than the pattern will be ready to travel again. 


Pot 4 Dickie, finished a band and a half only 13 more to go. 


I also got a very nice present. I thought my friend Sharliena was sending me the rooster pattern for the great rooster she had been working on before I moved to Florida. Well I opened the package and there was the finished rooster in all is glory. It is beautiful and she did a great job on it. I will get it framed and hang it in my dining room with my rooster collection. I love it, the back stitching really makes the feathers and wood grain pop out.
