A completed project and a WIP

Ok it may not seem like much but since I was still recovering from the long week at our county fair, I needed something simple to get me back into stitching mode. I love the patterns done with Kats by Kelly, in fact I think there may only be about 5 left that I have not done. Here is my latest finish, "Faxcination".

I'm not sure how I will finish this one off but they are fun to do over a weekend when I don't want to think too much about what I am stitching. Unlike my major WIP, "Crystal Symphany" from Mirabella. I have been working on this piece since January, taking it with me to EGA free stitch functions and working on it during my prep periods while substitute teaching. The stitching is almost finished.
Once the stitching is finished, I will wash the piece before adding all the different beads. With any luck I will have her completly finished by December. But then again there are those pesky Christmas presents to work on and the pieces from the classes Iwill take at Jubilee. But if we don't have goals, how do we get the feeling of accomplishments
