Stitching Updates

You know, the A to Z blogging challenge has been killing me.  Not so much the blogging part, that has been fine.  But I've had so many more wonderful blog posts to read this month with everyone posting once per day that I'm super behind on reading/commenting on everyone's blogs.  Just when I was getting caught up too!

Anyway, on to the world of stitching progress.  I was able to get a bit of progress done on my spring Egg Topiary square while I took that unexpected road trip last week:

I ran out of green while on the road, so that's why the green egg on the left is only partially complete.  Sadly, I didn't get as much done as I was hoping to.  But with one more big push this weekend I think I might have a finish to show you on Monday. 

I've also started a new pattern yesterday called Friends for Life from an old issue of CrossStitcher.  Here's what it will look like when finished:

And here's where I am now:

Doesn't look like much yet, since I've only done 2 shades of yellow in the dog's face so far.  This will eventually being going to Love Quilts for a quilt, provided I'm able to finish it before the end of the month.  I kind of forgot about it until recently organizing my stash.  Oops!
