Like mother, like daughter

An unexpected day off from work on Friday allowed me to make progress on two projects. Finally, finally, finally Autumn Angel is completed.
Ta-da! 
Once again I used stash items to finish her. The fabric has been in my stash for many years and the yarn is an old hair tie. 

I think she looks great! She is a great addition to my Autumn decorations.
I was able to spend more than an hour working on Baker Beach. This is where it was in September when I last worked on it.
I added swaths of two more colors. I am just shy of being half-way done with page 7 out of 10. 
Now here is what makes my heart sing. Last Christmas, I gave my daughter a cross-stitch ornament kit. Now that she has finished studying for her 10th actuarial exam, she has some free time and this is what she sent me.
What is even better is that she is really enjoying working on it. She has promised to continue to send me updates so I will keep sharing her progress as well.
 I may continue working on Baker Beach today, but I also have two Prairie Schooler Santas that need my attention. I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching today. On Monday I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful finish! Baker beach looks great too! Your daughter's project ...is that a variegated thread she is using? I can't tell what her project is going to be yet...I will be watching to see the picture unfold each week.

What a thrill it is to see your daughter following in your footsteps with the stitching. Do I see a snow globe developing?

Your angel looks so pretty finished like that.

Baker beach wow so many stitch's how much do you have to do?
Good for your Daughter, I love hearing about young people picking up the cross stitch bug, it can be very addictive.

Congratulations on the completion of your Autumn Angel!
She turned out beautiful.
Wonderful that you found time to work more on Baker Beach as well.
I think it's awesome that your daughter is enjoying the art of stitchwork.
She is doing such a beautiful job on her ornament project.

Baker Beach is looking great! And so cool to see your daughter is stitching. Is that one of the snow globe ornaments? I have one as well that I started back in January. Stitching is a great way to relax your mind while in school.
