January IHSW and TUSAL

I felt like I got a good amount of stitching done this IHSW...and then I realized that I added in an extra day. Since Monday was a holiday from work, I sort of counted Monday into my stitching too! (sorry about that!)

My results:

The Wedding before (this was a new start):


The Wedding after:



Cathedral before (was working on the rest of page 5):


Cathedral after (finished page 5 and 6 and started page 7):




And my ever so late, January TUSAL:


My son made me an adorable "Perler cup" for my ORTs, but they were kind of difficult to see, so I tossed them into a jar for a better view.   (info on how to make a perler cup can be found here)


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projects!
