Summer Olympics Stitch-A-Long Results

I made good progress during the Summer Olympics Stitch-A-Long!  I have 3 finishes to report.

For my Team Spirit and Mini-Marathon gold medals : I finished my Eagle Ornament - 3-1/4" x 3-1/4"on 28 ct linen (adapted from "United We Stand" pattern found at:  I removed the medallion and replaced it with USA, and I added glass beads to the olive branch and wheat stalks. 

I plan to finish this into an ornament, as I have so few Patriotic themed items to display during the Summer holidays.

For a gold medal crossing the Finish Line: I finished Mr. Whiskers into an ornament by adding a felt backing, a hanging ribbon and white wire whiskers.

Mr. Whiskers can be found in the Just CrossStitch 2012 Halloween Issue (page 14).

Rotation Relay:  While I did work on my 3 rotation projects, I did not finish any of them... so I will post those photos in a later update. 
For a gold medal in the Sprint:  I managed to finish Nighttime Moon.  This was a project I received as a gift.  I finished most of the needlepoint in 2006 - so it was just a matter of doing the outlining and adding all of the stars to the piece.

This brings my finishes for 2012 up to 13!

  1. Wonderful finishes, Cheryl! Thanks for the link to the free Patriotic Eagle. Mr. Whiskers is adorable. I made a needlepoint pic just like yours for a friend years ago. Very pretty!
