IHSW, a new finish, and some Yarn projects too!

I finally got the photos from IHSW uploaded to my computer. I spent the majority of the day working on the Spring Mandala from Ink Circles, finishing the stitching completely. For a reminder, here is the last picture I took:
I had made some progress since this picture where I finished the Black outline. Below is the finished project just out of the Q-SNAP.

Spring Mandala
Ink Circles
2 over 1, 18ct. white Aida
I had tried stiching this on linen but the fabric floss combination was not working for me so I ended up on Aida.

The I also made a receiving blanket for my nephew and Machine sewed the backing on the finish below. I am planning on stuffing it to make a pin cushion.

Lizzie and Kate - Whatever!
36ct linen
2 over 2
backing scrap from my stash
Finally I had spent much of the previous week working on some knitting and crocheting of dish cloths! All that is left is weaving in the ends!

Various dishcloths - Lily's Sugar and Cream Yarn.
This weekend is a long weekend in the US so I have some Family time, my father's birthday and hopefully big stitching. I put the Lady and the Flag back in the hoop for awhile. :)

Happy Stitching!
