Page Three Started

I have been spending a little time every day working on Baker Beach. I finished the second page last weekend.
I have almost finished working on the first color of the page. Thankfully, there are big swaths of single colors throughout most of this page. I hope that means it will work up quickly.
Here is where I am on page three.
Oh it feels so good to say that!
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching today. My goal will be to finish that blue I am working on and maybe start the next shade of blue. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are hand-stitching.

I have also taken out The Prairie Schooler 2008 Santa to work on. I bought the 18 count Putty Khaki Davos that is recommended a couple of weeks ago. I don't have all the prescribed colors, but I am thinking of making some substitutions as I really have a ton of different colored floss and don't want to buy any more. I just really started it last night so I haven't stitched much yet.
Since it is so small, I can work on it while watching TV.

Spring has finally truly sprung here. My daffodils are in full bloom.
 That is my gazing ball stand, but I haven't put the ball out yet.

Thanks for stopping by!

When I commented a while ago I said it looked like you had nearly finished and your said then you were starting on the second page! I can see now there is still a way to go - lol! But it is looking great! I like Santa too - nothing like getting a head start on Christmas!

Oh I just love how your counted cross stitchery is coming along. I cannot do that kind--my eyes are not good enough--so I do printed embroidery...but there are not half as many nice ones out there...hugs, Julierose

Love the new project, the Santa. Such a great idea to get started on Christmas.

How big will the picture be when it is done? I have done some cross stitch pictures that have taken over a year to do. This is a wonderful scene you are doing.

I didn't think that far ahead. It was just a small project that I had on hand.

Lovely stitching and those daffodils!! Mine are finished for the year, but they sure are pretty aren't they?

I think this is my favourite WIP on the Internet at the moment, I love seeing updates! Absolutely beautiful. Lovely garden too, but...what is a gazing ball?!
