First finish and first start of 2013

Here is my first finish of the year:

Darth Vader Cookies, by Dork Stitch

I'm a bit of a nerd/geek, so this will be my new mouse pad at work :)
I have also finally been able to start on QS Mystic Garden, by Ciro Marchetti, as part as the HAED BB SAL. I am tent-stitching 2 over 1 on 28 count beige lugana, and here is what it looks like after a couple of evenings:

Lots and lots of confetti stitches, but it's all worth it in the end, those greens are gorgeous.
Not much to see yet, but if you click on the Long-Term WIP tab, you'll see an image of the final product.

Thanks for looking!

Cookie Darth is on my to do list, I think it is so cute! You have made better progress on the BB SAL than me, I only have about 150 stitches in so far! :)
