Late YOTA post

Where did the first week of April go?????
Had a busy weekend. Easter flew up on me with supersonic speed. Saturday was spent cleaning the boxes, of cross stitch stuff I am listing on ebay, out of the dining room. And stuffing them into my craft room(ahem...storage room) so the house looked presentable for dinner.
I didn't stitch on Silver Moon Tea this month. I do have a face on Fun Guy Snowballs Stocking!
He had a gazillion confetti stitches in his eyes. I kept stitching a few, setting him down, and then going back to him until the eyes were done. Okay, I have to get used to him staring at me while stitching.... Christine suggested a blindfold over his eyes.
Now to get to my SAL's. Oh wow, am I behind this month.
Happy stitching!

Wow, amazing stitching. Another piece where the cover picture really doesn't do it justice.

Great progress on the stocking. And hopefully these eyes won't haunt you too much, lol.
