My latest stitching has shown some growth! 

My lunch buddy now has a hill to stand in. Even if he is missing his nose. 

And sleeping princess is getting some body parts. I've seen on Facebook in the mirabilia group, some wonderful ladies have stitched the skin over one and wanted to give it a try. I don't like how bulky a full stitch looked with two threads over one so I just did a half stitch and I'm pleased with it. I do little chunks at a time so I don't get sick of doing it. Skin itself is pretty boring to stitch. Skin over one?! Forget about it! So I do a few stitches over one and then do some color. And wow! Those x's look huge after you've done some over one stitching, lol! 

Over the weekend I purchased a 17x17 qsnaps frame at michaels. I'm excited to use it for my chatelaine and also for mirabilia projects. It's big enough that it will fit pretty much the entire stitch in one area so I will be able to even bead as I stitch so I won't have to wait until the end!
