Diabetes Tree

On Saturday before our 1/2 an inch of snow I stopped by my LNS- The Busy Needle to check out the Diabetes Tree. Each year, Sara has a fundraiser for Diabetes. IF you make a cash donation then you get to pick an ornament off the tree and your get a set of ornament patterns from designers. This year, X's and Oh's offered a contest to help raise money for this good cause. I took some pictures of it for everyone to see. I even found Karin from NV ornament. The pink checkered ornament came in first place.

On my stitching note, I had a small finish from Heinzeit. I finished Dogs. It was stitched on 18 count chocolate aida with spearment Six Sweet Strands. I plan to put it in my guest bathroom.

I also started on my LHN design for my friends weeding sampler. I also worked a bit on my Augusta piece. I updated a picture on the right. I actually have 3.7% but my percent bars are only 5% at a time. I would love to say that I am half finished with the first page...but nope not yet...I hope that on the next rotation I can finish at least 1/2 the page.

Stitches left to complete:228,821
Percentage completed:28.4%

A lovely finish, Vickie.
