Christmas gift stitching and SAL update!

I stitched this ornament for my friend's husband.  I already made her the martini ornament a few days ago.  I bought lots of ornament kits from Janlynn a few months ago, with the plan to make them for my friends and family.  I also bought a lot of ornament kits from Linda.  This is the first year I will have cross stitched ornaments on my Christmas tree.

"Pirates of the Caribbean"
Started 12/2/2011, Finished 12/6/2011

I didn't make much progress this week on Trick or Treat, just the outline of the letter R.  You can see Linda's progress HERE.  The reason why I didn't meet my goal of finishing all the letters this week is because I was stitching on two Christmas gifts for my son and his girlfriend.

My son has always had Nintendo or X-Box, but she uses the Sony PlayStation.  I will be glad to be done with all this gray and get back to something more colorful!

I am stitching this one for my son.  It is called Perpetual Mario.  The brothers, Mario and Luigi, are playing Nintendo, and the TV screen shows them playing Nintendo, and then another, and then another.  I thought my son would really get a kick out of it.  This is what the pattern looks like:

My cat usually sits next to me as I'm cross stitching, which gave Teddy a great idea! He climbed right up onto my lap!

Just stopping by, saw your comment on Parsley's blog and that you were in Southern California, so thought I would check out your blog. I like your stitchery work! Very nicely done; the one with Mario and Luigi is so cute!

(I too live in Southern California and am also a medical transcriptionist :)

May you have a Merry Christmas!

Great progress, I like the ever-diminishing Mario one.
And the enormous dog that thinks he's a lap-dog!

We have a dog just as big as yours that thinks he is a lap dog :D They get very territorial!

I like that mario pattern it's cool how it keeps going in.

oooo Mario Bros... I love that game!! I really like the pirate ornament, it looks really cool. What is that thing called that your fabric is on? is it a frame? Or does it hold in your fabric as you sew?
