First 2011 update

I know it's like the middle of the month but I really haven't had a lot to say so I've been stitching and reading. I've been working on my Gettysburg WIP from many, many years ago. I've been racking my brain trying to think when I started this. I'm sure it was when I still lived with my parents which was like 10 years ago. (Hanging my head in shame and slowly shaking it from side to side)
I've been told by my husband that I couldn't buy any more patterns or kits until I finished one. I don't think he knows how many patterns and kits I have in my craft room. I was tempted to buy another HAED during their sale over New Years but was denied. So I'm trying to work like crazy to finish one. Problem is that I have no small WIPs.

Here is what Gettysburg looked like when I picked it up on the 2nd of January.

And here is what it looked like when I snapped a pic early this morning. The white spot on his face will be his eye. I just haven't stitched it yet.

TUSAL Update

I've joined the TUSAL (Totally Useless Stitch A Long) that Daffycat is hosting this year. Here is my pic. The jar that I'm using is a cherry jar that I've washed, if I fill this jar up I'll find another jar to fill that is bigger or just use another cherry jar. (I do love my cherries.)
