Cross Stitch WIP Update

I haven't posted about my Cross Stitch work in awhile.  So here's what's waiting to be done.  I can't look at or consider starting any more projects until these are done.  Okay, more done than they are now.  LOL!!!!

We like cats.  These pieces remind me of our 3 cats, once out of the package they are small enough to be take along projects.  Which means I will carry them in my purse and work on them when waiting at places.  I always have a project with me.  I'm working on Leonardo right now, Frederick the Literate and Maggie the Mess Maker are waiting to be worked on.

This piece is for me.  I really like Noah's Ark stuff, the different the better.  It's called Noah's Sub. 

This is the piece I'm doing for my son, it's a Fractal.  I don't have a photo anymore more of what it's supposed to look like.  It was a large free pattern, many pages, but not too big when finished.  He's into math, he thinks it looks neat.  Thankfully there isn't any back stitching involved, just lots and lots of grays and yellows.

I haven't done much on this piece.  It's the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, this portion is called "Creation of Eve" and it's the center panel.  Much more needs to be done.  I'll get to this piece during football season, which starts next month.  It's rather wrinkled, so it must not have gotten put away right, so I'll get it ironed and stored properly.

Wonderful WIP's - Sistine Chapel is definitely an ambitious project, but well worth it!

Great WIP. I've had the Noah's Sub in my stash for ages but not started it yet! Love the fractals.
