Good enough to eat

As a continuation from this post, I finished the Hot Fudge Sundae pattern from this pattern set and man it looks good enough to eat! 

I had thought about going into more detail with these patterns, filling them with stitches, but I'm liking the simplicity of just having the outline for now. 

I don't know about you but I'm really craving a hot fudge sundae right now...I'm just going to blame it on pregnancy brain!

 I've also made some (slow) progress on this large cross stitch project.  It's definitely slow-going and I may not finish it before baby gets here but I'm just going to keep working on it because I just love this pattern.  I've also realized that the folks that designed this chart are from Alaska!  That makes me want to finish it even more because of the time hubby and I spent there (it's where we met!) and we will definitely take our boy there some day.  It's a truly magical place. I looked them up online and you can find this chart here!  I would also love to do this chart of Alaskan wild animals!

I hope you all have a wonderful week.  I'm just going to keep stitching away!

I agree with you...the outline embroidery looks lovely on this set you are stitching plus your stem stitching is perfect! ( now I want some gooey walnut brownie)
The sampler is coming along great! I'm about to start on a sampler myself (by 2nd week in March), but it's a girly one ;-) and I know I wont have it ready on time but whenever it gets done will make a beautiful room decor. Have fun!

Oooh, I really like your sundae! I actually like the look of just the outline too, it reminds me of a kind of vintage neon sign. That sampler is really neat too, and whowee, that's a lot of work! It's going to look great when it's done, even if it does take a while. I like projects that are like that anyway, something you can work on inbetween other projects, ya know?

Thanks Lisa--I definitely think I'll just leave the outline.
