Christmas Banners Stitch-a-Long, part 5

Hi everybody -- somehow another three weeks has passed. I've been working on the second Christmas Banner for the few weeks, making good progress. Here's where I was last time: 


This time I appliqu├ęd the rest of the animals, which looks like more progress than it is, I assure you!







For our next check-in on June 9 I hope to have all of the embroidery done on the animals and be ready to start on the sequins. 

The other stitchers in this stitch-a-long are always working on amazingly beautiful and diverse projects. Go check out their blogs and get inspired! Avis, Claire, Gun, Christina, KathyMargaret, JackieMegan, Deborah, Sharon, Daisy, Cathie, LindaMary Margaret, and Cindy.

  7. I have to admit that I'm dragging my feet on starting because it feels "difficult"!
