"Lost No More" Progress

After getting the cross stitching "bug" again (which was helped out A LOT by meandering into Michael's and seeing a huge clearance on some Dimensions Gold Collection kits -- $12!!), I purchased and started "Lost No More" designed by Greg J. Olsen:

I normally don't do kits, but this one was beautiful in person, and thought it would look great in my mother's living room.

This is my progress so far -- I started in mid April:

This one has been so enjoyable to stitch so far.  My original goal was to finish by Christmas, but I'm beginning to think I overreached in my expectations just a bit!  If I don't finish by Christmas, I figure it would make just as good of a Mother's Day 2012 gift.  Just gotta keep stitch, stitch, stitching!


  1. Great progress. It's a beautiful piece. I'm the same as you...I normally don't do kits, but every now and then you come across a really beautiful one and it's worth it.
    It doesn't matter much when you finish it, the pleasure of stitching is the most important. Followed by the pleasure of gifting it. Your mum will be thrilled.

  2. Wonderful start, Laura. I also have this piece on the go, but haven't pulled it out in quite a while. I really should pull it out again.

    Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
    Hugs, Sandy

  3. I don't usually like kits either, but sometimes that's the only way that you can get it! And the Gold's are very pretty no matter which one you choose. Congrats on getting a blog up and running!

  4. It looks great so far! Can't wait to see the next update.

  5. Gorgeous piece. Glad you have been bitten by the xs bug again and it looks like you picked a very pretty design to start on. I am also working on a dimensions kit on and off that called to me.
