Catching up

I finally have something to show, this is what I am stitching on the 2010 SAL, this is my 2nd piece of work for this SAL I found posting on this SAL each week does try and keep me focused to try and complete a piece of work.
I have also managed to finish another LHN monthly piece this one is Snowy Pines I am not stitching them in order, I stitched the trees in a variegated thread as I felt this gave a better effect. Each month when I receive the pattern I put all the threads into the packet and the piece of fabric then I am ready to stitch them.
I am also waiting for an Exchange to arrive, I was very lucky and had Edgar as my partner for the HOE ABC exchange but unfortunately the 1st parcel never arrived in the post so he has restitched for me, he posted it last Monday so it has been a week now I hope it arrives soon.

Your second SAL piece looks very good. What is it? COngratulations on finishing the first.
Hopefully Edgar's package will soon arrive. It usually takes a week for packeages from the US to arrive in Europe. And when it goes through customs (like mine always do) it even takes up to 3 weeks. Maybe it's quicker in your country.
