Jake Is In The Box and Progress on Dr. A

The Jake canvas is finished and is now in the Lee Photo Album Box. Denise, my stitching sister, gave me the canvas and Lee Photo Album for my birthday. I finally finished the canvas about a week ago and immediately placed it into the Photo Album Box. It really looks great on my coffee table in the family room. Now anyone who visits can entertain themselves with pictures of Jake from birth to present day.

Dr. A is progressing slower than I would like but I do not get a lot of time to stitch now that I have a full time job watching Jake. Amy has done a really amazing job on Dr. A. The thread and stitches she chose for Dr. A's coffin actually make it look likes it curves. Every time I do a home study canvas, I am reminded of how talented Amy is. I hope to finish up the main part of the canvas this week. I always stitch in the order of the directions. I find stitching that way works best for me. Once you get the background and borders done the rest seems to go a lot faster. Off to work on Dr. A.

Hey, Linda - You've gotten quite a bit done on Dr. A! That spider web really sparkles! Now you have the fun stuff to stitch. Me, I'm about to finish the background and still have a few minor things to finish. I agree with you about Amy's wonderful choice of stitches. I have learned so much on each of these canvases.

Does Jake have his Halloween costume yet?
