I'm On A Roll!!!

I have been on a stitching frenzy and I didn't even realize it until I used up my skein of DMC 3041. This makes it 1 bobbin and 8 skeins so far. I stitched our anniversary date and our names on the motifs and I'm almost done with the bottom motif. I'm really having so much fun with this project. It will have to be interrupted for a little bit though as I have to work on Project X.

As promised, here is a Purple Update. So far, I have used up 1 bobbin and 7 skeins of DMC 3041. I'm really happy with the progress so far. I have decided that I will stitch our anniversary date on the "date motif" and stitch our names in the "initials motif". It's great that we both have 3 letter names!
