I showed you in my last post all the pieces that I worked on for the first 11 days and now I can show you what I worked over the last week or so.
I left you at Day 11 which was white for the Olympic flag....

Christmas Cross Stitch Project Book

Day 12 - Cycling (or anything with a wheel)
|Insert photo shows what he will look like when finished|
This motif is part of a larger tablecloth design
I'm not doing his bike tyres in purple....
Nora Corbett's Christmas Couriers -"Comet"
Day 13 - Medals - Gold
Day 14 - Patriotic/National Anthems (or music related)
|Added the browns of his hind legs|
Now this is where the shoe-horn appears.... I am not currently stitching anything that could be called patriotic or music inspired so I decided that I would use the rather large shoe-horn I have to lever Comet in as a Christmas National Anthem (ie he is in the song "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer"....) LOL! :o)
Christmas Candle (new start)
Cross Stitch Gold Issue 5
Designer: Pam Johnson (Kooler Design Studio)
Day 15 - Olympic Torch - fire or flames
|Started: 20 August 2016|
Finished: 21 August 2016
Designer: Nora Corbett
Day 16 - Medals - Copper/Bronze
I did work on quite a bit though from the ribbon in the middle downwards and to the left as I wanted to get to the bronze metallic so that I would be able to say that I stitched on bronze for the last day of the challenge!
So that's it for the Olympic Stitching Challenge!
See you next time!
Til then... happy stitching
