Before I get to my update this week, I want to share something with you that hubby and I got a couple of days ago….our early Christmas presents to each other.

We both got the new Samsung GS3’s!! It was a very much anticipated upgrade for us so I’m so happy we finally got them. I’m bringing them up also because that’s what I’m posting this post from this week and depending on how it goes, maybe from here on out.

But now for my update….

I’m working mostly on the greens right now and the way it’s starting to look more shaded and the folds are more apparent is really making me happy. I’m working on the 3rd green right now and then will move on to the pinks.

Here is how it looks with everything showing on the scroll frame….

I’m still keeping my fingers crossed that I can get it done and the little pig ones completed by Christmas. We shall see!!

And now….a random picture from my Jr. High graduation

I’m the one in then blue dress. I wore little kitten heels to walk the stage but once we got to the dance afterwards those puppies got flung into the corner. Ahhh the good ole days.  🙂

I have officially started the second half of the pattern, earlier today that is. I didn’t have much time between finishing the outlining and doing a bit else so all of the green in the second half is what was done today.

First for the outlining. Here are some before and afters of the butterfly outlining:

I definitely think that the outlining gives the pattern so much more oomph. Before all you could see was some pink squares and maybe butterflies, if you used your imagination. After you can definitely tell what they are.

Those few pics are going to be the last ones of the entire bottom half until the project is done because I had to scroll up. That’s right, I had to scroll. 😀 

Here is the part the I have done today

It may not look like much but when looking at more of the pattern you can tell it goes with it.

I’m hoping I will have a bit more time to stitch this week so I can have some more done.

Whip those stitches everyone!!
