Olympic Stitching Challenege - Update #2

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week.
It has been a pretty good week in my neck-of-woods, lots of stitching and we finished back to school shopping on Monday. (Always nice to have that done.)

So onto the pictures...
DAY THREE
Very cute snowman!
(Can you tell I am ready for cooler weather?!?!)

This pattern is one of four seasonal designs created by BisforBumblebee on Etsy.

DAY FOUR
A cute, green cactus from the October 2016 issue of Cross Stitch Crazy magazine.

Not a huge start, but my family and I spent the day shopping...
...so, we didn't get home until late in the afternoon and I was just exhausted. (Not used to shopping for the long.)

DAY FIVE
Adorable kitties from 8bitstitching on Etsy...

Looking forward to getting back to work on this one.

DAY SIX
(WIP Wednesday)
I decided to pull out Ariel...
(I really tried to get her other eye finished, but I just ran out of time.)

Actually got quite a bit finished...

(where I left off Ariel)

DAY SEVEN
 Majora's Mask (from the Zelda game), designed by Cat Confetti on Etsy.

(This little mask was a huge pain to stitch!  So many colors in such a small space.)

This is another piece for my son...
...I honestly have no idea what the masks actually are, but he loves it, so that is all that matters.

Well, that is what I've been up to this week...
...today is going to be follow-up Friday, so I am hoping to finish one of my new starts.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

    1. Thank you Linda!
      I am trying hard to curb myself from buying all of Stitchring's princess patterns...
      I don't know how long I will be able to resist, though. :)
