Theme-a-licious Opulent October Wrap-Up

I really did think I had more sparkly projects in progress! So, I was forced (FORCED, I TELL YOU!) to start something new. And I even finished it!

This cute little guy is from a Mill Hill kit. He's now gracing my refrigerator door.

I managed to get a better (read: actually in daylight) picture of the section I did on Sapphire Star this month.
I was working on another piece, too, but I didn't manage to get home from work early enough to get a it will have to wait for the next update. =)

Hold hands and look both ways before crossing into...

No-Xs November
What can you make without making an X?? Blackwork, hardanger, embroidery, needlelace, and the list goes on! Don't can even backstitch for the month!

Ornament Theme
hardanger or blackwork

Now let's all just calm can do this! If you're feeling faint at the thought of not crossing any stitches for the month, just pick one project that's X-free. Try something different...something you've never done before, maybe?

I hope to spend some time with my Jane Nicholas stumpwork class piece, and I do have a hardanger ornament (or two...) that needs finishing. I have plenty of other projects on the go that will work this month, too!

So how did your Opulent October go? Are your projects all shiny now? Please add your link below (to your wrap up post), and visit some other Themers if you can (everyone loves comments and encouragement!) We'll check-in on November 15th to see what you've crossed off your WIP list (see what I did there?)

I had something with sparkles. And then went, "Nope, looks better without".

Probably because it wasn't as cute as that bunny.
