Hi there UFO followers. Here's my update on Breaktime. There have been one or two frog visits but they have all deserted for the time being. The pictures show the last few weeks, frogging and redoing and then finally progress. I'll soon be changing my out look and going for the head and shoulder part. Now that will be interesting. Next time I'll take a photo unrolled again. Keep watching.
Also at long last is the framed Carousel Horse. I am very pleased with the finished result and all the grumbles and moans while I was sewing it are forgotten. Many thanks to Chris at Nimble Thimble for such great framing.
Looking forward to seeing some more of your progress, to all of you out there Enjoy your stitching and Happy stitching to you.

Happy Dance, Happy Dance and Happy Dance!!!
I got this one framed finally
and it is one of my favorite pieces.
I put two suede mats on it and
floated them away from each other by
about 1/4 inch.
It gives the piece depth.
I used the kit but added some silk
I got from a company called
They are variegated and very soft.
I used them
in the Quaker motifs and for the water.
I didn't put in the big flowers, added some
extra sheep and changed
the alphabet to my favorite.
It is truly one of my own and I love it.
Thanks for looking your comments mean the
world to me.
God Bless your stitching fingers.
