If you get my weekly emails, you know that my stitching on Mardi Gras Santa came to a halt over the weekend. I don’t have some of the threads that I’d like to use on him, so I ordered them.

It’s amazing how much you can get done in as little as 30 minutes.

I’m helping with a needlepoint project at my church right now. Our nave was recently updated – we’re getting a new organ and the choir got new chairs, so we’re stitching cushions for them.

Here’s a picture of one in progress…
