Clouds, Clouds and More Clouds

First there was the monster cloud from And They Sinned...  I've been enjoying reading so many blogs lately of people working on this project.  It does take awhile to stitch but is such a great piece!

 ATS Cloud
 Then, there were the blue clouds from CHS' Black Horse Ranch...

Then, the green clouds from Frances Eden...

And now, my latest cloud...

Paradise Cloud
I didn't get much stitching done this week as I was preparing for some home improvement projects going on which meant running errands to pick up supplies and to somehow find a fireplace mantel.  Do you know how hard that is?  You can't just walk into a fireplace mantel store and pick one out but instead have to custom order one, find a specialty store or do what I did and go to three Lowe's stores to find the right one in stock plus some stain and poly.  That will be my project for this week so the fireplace redecoration project I have going on can be finished.  So, I may not have much progress to show you for a bit. 

So, I think it's probably pretty easy to guess where this cloud came from, it's from Paradise Lost!  And, here is my progress so far. 

Paradise Lost
The words at the bottom don't really travel uphill like the photo makes it look, I just took this picture by sticking my piece to the back of the couch and it's so large that it wraps around the couch cushions and looks distorted in the photo.  I am just loving this piece, the bright colors, cute figures and animals, it's so much fun to stitch!  I'm either going to move onto the sun next or just dive into the blue banner with the lettering so I can do the cherub on the other side.  I'm avoiding the middle of the piece for now because I really want to stitch the adam and eve, lions and giraffe so I'm getting some of the other things done first.  Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching!
