Progress Pics

I've gotten some stitching done, despite the light sensitivity and non-stop tears, but its slow.

Halloween Rules got a bit more work before getting packed up, but not as much as I was wanted.  I was hoping to get the top part finished.  Oh well, after the holidays it can come back out to play.  There are so many mistakes in here, I can't even count them all.  I guess that's what I get for stitching at 2 am.  Luckily, most of them were things I could just work around and adjust the pattern a tiny bit.
L*K Halloween Rules, stitched on 35 ct R&R 18th Century Blackbird,
with assorted overdyed cottons (my conversion).

I finished Part 2 of the Threadbasket / C Mon Monde SAL, finally adding in the green and a bit more red.  All of the colors I picked out are starting to come together.  I'm really enjoying the winter feel this has on the icy blue linen.  I did make a slight modification to the chart, and stitched small Rhodes stitches as the red and white berries, instead of just the plain cross stitches charted.

Now I have my SAL commitment done, and I know I'll get the 3rd part, I'm doing some ornament stitching for the challenge.  Hopefully I'll have some pictures ready to post soon.

I can't imagine getting any stitching done with sensitive, teary eyes--I'd say you've made great progress on both the SAL and the LK... All the colors you've chosen are wonderful!

The SAL piece is looking lovely!

Your SAL is so pretty, I really like the changes you made in the berries. I really give you a lot of credit working through your eye problems. Take care!

Oh I do hope your eyes clear up soon. That SAL is going to be one pretty piece - love the linen.

Great progress on both of your pieces.

I love how the colours for the L*K piece just jump off the fabric. What nice progress on both pieces! Hope your eyes start to feel better soon.
