My secret gift for a friend that recently broke her leg has been received, so I can post about it here!
I received this chart from a friend on the Cross Stitch Forum and it's such a fun little stitch. It only took a few days and I used some threads from my Dinky Dyes oops bags.

For whatever reason my heart hasn't been in stitching White Wolves, so I've started something new. This will be an Xmas gift this year I think. It's large, but not difficult, and there's large patches of colour, so it shouldn't take too long to complete. Certainly before Xmas.
Here's a picture of what it will look like. It's from a 2011 Cross Stitch magazine. There's only about 10 colours total and 3 metallics. They call for DMC Light effects, and I already had one that I needed, but I need 2 more. Michael's was out of one colour and their LE...
