UFO week

For me this is my UFO week, as well with a forum I am apart of, even though I haven't posted anything there and I am feeling a little guilty about that... but I will post soon.  For those of you that don't know UFO stands for Un-Finished Objects.  I will be working on Woodland Enchantress this week.  So if any of y'all have any UFO's pull them out and stitch on them this week.  Take a picture before you start and then at the end of the week take another and post them to show what you have done.  You might be surprised :).

The Great Emancipator

I have been working on "The Great Emancipator"  Which is a quote by Abraham Lincoln in the "Fathers of Freedom" series by Summer House Stitche Workes.  I am liking it a lot.  It's a small piece but it's taking some time to do and with my work schedule I don't always get a lot of time.  Like a couple of days ago I came home from work and went straight to bed.... and I slept until the next day... ooopsie. haha.  I made only one change so far which is the fabric.  I went with lambswool instead of the tea dyed linen, I didn;t like the yellow fabric.  I thought the lambswool would give more of an authentic paper look that has been aged.  I quite like it :).  I am also planning on beading some of the boarder but that is still to be determined.
