A Little Progress

After a long week of work, I devoted an hour Saturday morning to working on Baker Beach. I finished the black for page 4 and started filling in one of the browns. 
There are a whole lot of colors still to be filled in on this page. I may break it up and work some more on the sky on the next page. You can see that at the top right corner. I am looking forward to the day when I can say that I am halfway through with this entire chart.

I also made a good deal of progress on Spring Angel on and off this week. Her dress is done except for the tiny spot in the center. Now on to her hands, face and hair.  
I am planning on watching the live version of Grease tonight on TV. Hopefully I will be able to do a whole lot of stitching during it. I really want her to be finished before Spring is here. Wish me luck. 

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. On Monday, I will join the Stitchery Link Party over at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are up to.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good luck finishing spring before Spring arrives! Wonder what the groundhog will say about when spring will arrive?!?

I was shocked that you aren't half-way through. It looks like almost done to me! I must be missing something. That's a lot of stitching anyway. The little green angel is great!
