I started!!!

The most important thing to tell is that I started stitching my Celtic Summer for the Celtic Ladies SAL. I decided to use a 32 ct Lugana from Silkweaver, Sand Lugana. I hope it'll turn out good...I had to choose one of the fabrics I had at home because I didn't want to wait for starting my pattern later.
Here is the first picture.



I decided to start stitching from the center of the pattern and I'm stitching the dress with DMC 312. The alternative colours are all DMC so I don't need any Needlepaint.

I stitched my little dog too, but I don't have a big progress. Here is it!



Then I started sewing the Christmas quilt. I sewed only two blocks, but I'm happy because I have already done something. Here is one of the sewed blocks.





Do you stitch for events like weddings, engagements, or other things
that might not last? If you have been unlucky and the two people broke
up, what happened to your stitched gift?

Sometimes I stitch for events like weddings and birthdays. But I've been lucky. Once I stitched for one of my friends' wedding, I prepared a little pillow for the wedding rings and she liked it very much. She usually hold it on their bed and I'm really happy about it!

I love the little dog--what a cutie!! Can't wait to see your progress on the Celtic Summer--I am not so good at keeping up with really large projects!! And your quilt is going to be nice--is it a bed quilt?

Good for you, getting an early start on your quilt project! The doggie design is just too cute. Be sure to share your Celtic Summer progress - I love that color DMC and it looks great on the fabric.
