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’m back again for another update. Things have settled down a bit so I have had a bit more time for stitching.

Here’s my progress:

I’ll tell you now that it doesn’t look like I’ve done much in the middle part of the dress but it’s because the colors are light and there is some white in there too. I promise there is!!

See….

I was looking at the colors I’m using compared to the colors required and noticed there is a bit of color variation. It still looks good but you can (or at least I can) tell that they are different. It’s because I converted the Anchor colors to DMC. I’m hoping that in the end it looks close enough that the colors still work well together. Wish me luck!!

I’m so happy to be working on this new project!! I love it when I complete something because that means that I can start on something else. Hehe.  😉  Even though I split the geisha pattern up into 4 different pieces, I’m working the bottom half of the dress with both pages and I’m happy to report that the bottom part of said dress is coming along nicely. Here is an updated pic of my progress so far….

As you can see, it looks like it’s almost done except for the middle and patten parts. I’m hoping to keep this moving along at a good pace so it’ll be done in time for Christmas. I have other posts that are going to be posted tonight so check back in to see what has kept me so busy!!
