an Olympics new start

The other day I was given a gift of a new HAED chart. It is Faces of Faery 66
So after a lot of consideration, I decided to start a new piece and stitch on it through all of the Olympics. I don't ever watch Summer Olympics, I LOVE Winter Olympics. But this year I decided to and it was another first of ever watching the Opening Ceremonies and they were awesome! I was in awe of the whole thing. I have watched the US get a lot of medals, today.So here is where I am at tonight with this piece.

There are large blocks of color so I am hoping to have more progress reports this week.

I have also decided to try a rotation after the Olympics are over. I have it written down and can't wait. Maybe have more finishes done this way and will be able to fit in smalls.

Thanks for visiting and for the comments.

Oooooh, a rotation, what fun. I hope you enjoy it, Shelleen. And so far, it's looking great. Love the kitty in this one. He's darling. (I have a thing for black cats, what can I say.)

This is the first time in I don't know how long that I'm missing the Olympics because I can't get ABC on my TV. To see it on the 'net, you have to have cabe which I don't have. Boo.

Nice progress so far!
