Weekend Progress

Treasure Them Now...Or Eat Them!
 This weekend I decided that I was going to try and get some of the back stitch done on my dragon so that I didn't have all of it left to the end.  No, I really don't like doing back stitch so this is one way to avoid having to do it all at once.  Besides getting the back stitch done I was able to even get some stitching done on the dragon.

As if I didn't have enough projects on the go I decided to start another project.  This one is called Sisters and Friends by Drawn Thread
Sisters and Friends
I picked up the pattern on Wednesday night as well as the floss so it was ready to go so considering I want it finished by early April I needed to get working on it now.  The truck of the tree did seem to take a long time to complete but now I have the branches to do on the tree and the leaves.  The pattern doesn't have a lot of detail so I should be able to get it done in time.

Besides working on my cross stitch this weekend I actually did a bit of crocheting as well as I am trying to complete a baby afghan.

This week looks like I am going to be able to hide and cross stitch at least one evening so will have to decide which piece I actually work on.  I am looking forward to seeing the tree come to life but I also want to see the rest of the baby dragons appear with the mom dragon.  Decision, decision.  I guess I will have to decide when the time comes to actually pick up the piece.

The weather is warm here which is great for March so want to try and enjoy some time outside as well.  Lots of things need to get done so now to start getting them done.
