I just have to say that when you join the stitchalong, I do not provide any charts, you BUY them yourself and stitch along and show your progress, I do not offer any charts at all!!

Thanks

Blackstone Fantasy Garden

I started this in 2010 and by 2011 it became a UFO.  However, one of my 2013 resolutions was to stitch on mu UFO's at weekends and for my first project, I picked this one.  When I re-started stitching in it, it looked like this:
Sorry about the colour quality of this photo, the one below is a better reflection of the fabric.
After 2 weekends of stitching, it now looks like this:
The good thing is that I am enjoying stitching it again and so I will finish it this year!!

Progress on Cirque des Carreaux

I finally picked up Cirque des Carreaux again. I love this piece, but stitching over 1 on the hand-dyed fabric sometimes gets to me. I am loving how this is turning out though.

I Still Do as of 24th July 2012

Here's my latest progress on I Still Do after 10 hours stitching.  This is now my main focus piece in my rotation as I need to finish it in time to get it framed for August 2013.  So you should be seeing more updates from me.

This is how it looked when I last posted.

May Update

Slow progress on the 40 count fabby, but I am still loving this pattern - it's really a fun stitch!
March 2012 (only just)
 May 2012
I did some reverse stitching to change the colours up a bit from the pattern in this centre section. A couple of the HDF pinks were a bit too close in colour when stitched side by side... 
Looking forward to some more stitchy time in the next couple of months, hope others can enjoy the same...

The transformation is complete

I finally finished Metamorphosis!!




This is stitched over 2 on 32 ct Heritage lugana using the recommended GAST threads. I wanted to love the colourway, but I don't. (Though I still love the pattern and am considering stitching it again.) I think this pattern would look better using either a single colour gradient or doing black on white (or vice versa).

Not sure what to work on next, but I expect I'll tackle my Cirque des Carreaux sometime soon!

Metamorphosis is getting close!

I've finished the first 5 motifs in this design. I love the pattern, but I'm not as thrilled with the colours. I'm stitching this 2 over 2 on 32 ct Heritage lugana using the recommended GAST threads.


Growth Rings April Progress

Didn't get as much done as I wanted, but did make progress!  I would love to say I am going to make a ton of progress for May, but my calendar is looking a bit full. :(

Progress from March
April's progress

 I am using a hand dyed linen from a grab bag from Hand Dyed Fibers, and the floss is Summer & Smoke(the inside color) and Arctic Ice (the outside color) by Gloriana.

Yet another March post!


Hello fellow IC stitchers and lovers…

Yesterday I had decided that I was probably too late to post my progress for March – however I see a trend that has immerged here ‘this month’ (ahem) and so I am pleased (and unashamed) to join such an esteemed list with my update… I guess we did the stitching in March, didn’t we????

January 2012


March 2012 (yes really)


Happy stitching until next month time

Tanya's March progress

Still slow going on this but more x's done than in February so I am happy :-) Sorry for lighting - had to take photo indoors late at night so the fabric is a lot lighter than it is IRL - it's Heather by PTP. Actually, now that I look at it, it is SO light I may take a new pic tomorrow (Monday Apr 2) and edit this post....

Growth Rings 3/29/12 Progress

I took a pretty long Ink Circles break, but I am back now.  I recently picked up Growth Rings.  It's been on my todo list for a very long time.  So here's my progress for the month of March (and about 50 stitches from February.)  I am using a hand dyed linen from a grab bag from Hand Dyed Fibers, and the floss is Summer & Smoke(the inside color) and Arctic Ice (the outside color) by Gloriana.
