April Progress

I need to change my header for Progress Pics on the left to UFOs. Ashamed to say I have not picked up any of them in quite a few months. Somewhere stuck in there is the M Design "Rejoice" tree - started with the best of intentions. Meanwhile, I go into my LNS and there's a tree design I hadn't seen. It's the "Pray" tree - offered by M Design as a freebie to bring attention to those affected by Hurricane Katrina and encourage donations to the charities helping in the recovery. Here's the progress on my Pray Tree. It's done on 28 count hand-dyed Jobelan (Thyme) using Silk-N-Colors (Forest). I promise not to let it get lost in UFO-land and to take a better picture.

Created a second blog for my knitting & crochet progress - it's MyDzire 4 Yarn. Stop on by & let me know what you think. Happy stitching everybody!
