1st of the month ATS progress

Hello! Well another month has passed me by so fast and here's the progress on And They Sinned. I started it on 01-01-08, so this is three months of stitching.
Is that half way????
I was going through the bowels of my WIP totes and found this Warm Winter Wishes by Waxing Moon. I am going to have this finished by the 1st day of summer, if not sooner. I think I threw it away because the white snow don't show up very well. I am going to try ecru and see if that works. I am stitching it on 36 ct In The Clouds linen.

Last Saturday I was going to get a mat for Midnight Stroll. On the way there I stopped at a church rummage sale and found this frame for a quarter.Can you believe it? I think it suits it just fine. I love the little dainties of it. I saved money not having to have a mat cut to size. Its not a very good pic, the weather is so gloomy, so the lighting is terrible.

And another thing I cant believe is that I won the contest for the SB Pale Eggs kit on Cindy's blog that she was offering. Go over and give her a big Howdy!! She has an awesome blog. Thanks Cindy

I put some time aside for tomorrow to play catch up on blogs, I hope it works out, hehe. The posts are really accumulating.

I have a question on my last post. How come the SB framed photo is clickable but not the BBD wip? They are the same size and was downloaded at same time. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Happy Stitching!!

You've certainly been busy. Great progress on ATS, and Warm Winter Wishes is looking very cute. I love Waxing Moon designs, hopefully the ecru shows a little better on the fabric for you. What a great find on the frame too, it looks wonderful with your piece.

As to why the one picture will click and the other won't, sorry I can't help on that one. Any chance one was scanned and one was photographed?
