Fire Fighter Sampler

As you can see, it's not completely finished but it is getting there. I've finished most of the inner pictures and those should all be done by the end of the day today. That just leaves me with the wording within the borders tomorrow. XD

I know, I know. It's been awhile since my last post. Unfortunately, I don't really have any new pictures to share with you of my current progress on the pieces I'm presently stitching. What I do I have, however, is some news about the crazy stuff that's been going on since my last post, and it may give you some idea as to why it's been so long since my last post.

First off..I wasn't able to post because my blog was mistakenly marked as spam and thus the Blogger blocked any more postings. I got that all straightened out pretty quickly though, and as you can see I am able to post once more. :D

In other news...I've got less hours at work this month which means more time for cross-stitch. (It does also mean less money which is frustrating.) I also won and received an old Dimensions kit off of Ebay which I am eager to begin. I've decided I will wait until I finish at least one of my other projects first though. The kit is called 'The Ballet' and I believe it is now out of print, but I suppose I could be mistaken. Ebay seems to be the only place it can be found anymore and I think I took the last one. Sorry...sort of. :D

My dad's 'Fireman Sampler' is looking quite lovely. It is nearly finished which is very exciting. I think I may have it done by Saturday; Monday at the latest. That also means I will be able to start my new Dimensions "Ballet" kit! XD

I'll post some pictures later tonight, though it may be later this weekend. Sorry for the delay in postings!

Majestic Eagle

Well, I still haven't been able to get on a computer and upload pictures of my progress on various pieces but I have made some progress on the 'Majestic Eagle'. Here is a link to what it should look like when finished. So far I've got the start of both wings finished, and am progressing quite nicely on the black thread. I'm focusing on completing the eagle first, and then the background, since it's more fun to me that way. I hope I can put up some pictures soon; I may set an alarm and sneak onto the other computer (which has my photos) while everyone's sleeping so I can let you all see what my pieces are looking like.
