WIPS and a couple of floss tosses

Last week, I managed to get the rest of the black on page 2 done.  There is now over a skein of 310 stitched.  Saturday, I started filling in color and decided I'd had enough of color changes for a bit.  this is where I left Sea Witch.  I'll come back to her.


I pulled out Coat of Arms instead for some monochrome time.  This is far as I got Sunday.  I've almost finished page 21 but I don't have an updated picture.  


Saturday, my oldest had a basketball game.  So I checked the stash to see what I need to finish kitting up Mirabilia's Snow Queen and Santa's Sleigh.  After basketball we stopped by Hobby Lobby to pick up what I was missing.

I think my floss tosses look pretty good.  I'm using Wicked Garden by Colour Cascades Fabrics.  I took pictures on the same piece of fabric but you get the idea.  When I saw the fabric, I had a picture in my mind's eye of the northern lights behind them and this fabric is perfect.  I think there could be a problem with a couple of the DMC colors, but they're surrounded by other colors so I don't think they'll be an issue.

Whoa a whole skein of black! Coat of arms is progressing well. Sometimes it's one colour stitching is what you need. I love the fabric on both your new starts. Especially Santa's sleigh. I think the colours are really going to pop on that one. Looking forward to your wips
