With the newest of the Lil Flakes and Snowbugz out, I picked up the January installment of the Whiskerkins, Snowflake. He was a quick stitch, and has been very well received by the Whiskerkins fans! He has more sparkle than what you might see here as I worked in a few Kreinik braids.
With the end of the month looming, I thought it better to leave the next holiday themed pattern I had designed for next year, picking up instead Carnival, the next in the cross stitch quilt block collection.
I just love this design. It's addictive and ever-changing. I've found myself working until 2am the last few nights as I lose track of time while stitching.
This is the progress thus far, working through the bottom left quarter of the design as well as the top left quarter. I hope to get the whole left side finished over the next couple of days. I have already started designing another of these that reminds me a little more of stained glass.
Now off for more coffee and a staff meeting at the group home, pouting a bit because I really just want to stay home and stitch.
