I've never used the waste knot method. I usually start my thread using the loop method, and to finish it I run the thread under 3 or 4 stitches

I have subscriptions to 4 cross stitch magazines (The Gift of Stitching, WOCS, Cross Stitcher and Quick and Easy), so my list of things I want to stitch from them is really long, that's why I decided I was going to start stitching some of them, Wordsworth is one of that list.

Tomorrow I'll go beg the framer to have it done on Saturday morning.
I went to different craft stores and couldn't find the buttons I originally wanted for this design, so I used the ones I had in my stash.
When I was in search of my buttons, I noticed in a craft store that they were selling illegal copies of Leisure Art patterns !!! They even have them on display...I was so mad and decided never to shop in that store again. I think I'll call copyright authorities of Peru tomorrow; hopefully they will do something about it.

My SIL's Baby Shower is on November 25th and I wanted to give her something for the baby done by me, so I went through my magazines and decided to do this design. I want to have it finished by Saturday morning and immediately take it to the framer because she usually needs a whole week to have it done.
The picture shows my progress of one evening.
Do you stitch Christmas ornaments? If so, how many do you stitch each year and for whom? If not, why not?
Never done one, I have to learn some finishing techniques first.

On Tuesday I gave Carol the biscornu but when she saw it she said that she really liked it but the one she needed had to be at least twice that size So then I had to do another one, this time the design I chose was 60w x 60h. I was to lazy to think of another color of fabric and thread so I chose the same one as my first biscornu.
Sandra, my SIL, saw the first one and thought it was really cute, so she decided to keep it.
This is Mylo (our 4 month old yorkie) modeling for the camera with the second bicornu.

Well as Carol already mentioned my brother and his wife are expecting a baby boy, so I decided I was going to stitch them a Birth Announcement. The design I've chose to stitch is Baby's Friends by Dimensions.
This whole year I've not been in the mood to stitch...but finally I think this is changing. I'm hoping to finish this project by the end of November...well lets see how that goes.
The picture shows my progress after approximately 12 hours of stitching .

Not much progress done in the past to weeks, I've only managed to stitch 3 evenings. I always seem to tired or it's just to late when I come home from work.
The baby will be here in less than two months, and I still have a long way to go..... *panics* . Hopefully this weekl I'll have a little more time and I'd be able to at least finish another bear.

A lot has happened since the last time I wrote. I started working a full time again. Our company has moved to a another part of the city, so now I'm have less free time. It's supposed to be only a 20 minute drive there, but with all the traffic jam sometimes it takes me more than an hour to get home. I hate driving in Lima it's just too chaotic, but using the public transportation is even worse.
We have a new puppy, so we're all happy about that. My other dog, Gaston is thrilled to have a new friend. We just have to be careful que doesn't sit on him! The puppy's name is Mylo he is a 3 month old Yorkshire terrier....the cutest little thing!
I haven't done much stitching, I just have to organize my time better, but I do miss it a looooot! This is how my quilt project is looking so far.... I need to work on it again soon...the baby will be here in only 2 months!

En realidad nunca he usado waste canvas, una vez me compre un poco con la intencion de bordar sobre una camiseta, pero hasta ahora no me animo.

Here are some pics of my latest wips. I was going to post them last week, but couldn't find the time.
I finished this bib for my nephew. My sister is stitching the other one that came on the kit.
I've also made some more progress on the baby afghan, now the lower part is complete. I've done some more stitching during the weekend. Another one of the bears is almost complete.
