Rachael's August progress

Firstly a big Thank you to Hazel for helping with the blog.

August Progress
Not much but every little counts

Sheila's August Update - Bramble & The Rose

It's been a little while since I posted as I've done very little stitching over the last few months but I think my stitching mojo is back!

Before (last updated May)

After (August update)

Not a great deal to show but every little stitch helps. My target over the next month is to finish my second page and make a good dent in page 3 - needles crossed :)


August update

I mainly worked on CDC this month.   Just started so this is the first picture :o)

CDC 8-15-10

August Progress Tanglewood

Hello, hello,
Here comes my August update. And I must say, Elisabeth was right with her comment. If you happen to want to stitch Tanglewood, beware of the lowest branch on the right - it is mean. It was lots more fun to work this one. :-)



CdC August progress



See that leftmost motif in the centre row? I must have frogged that 5 times! Grrrrrr

Thank you.

Thanks to anyone who did put up their "before" pictures to make it easier for me to do the updates. I have done them up to date now. If your name is not on any of the lists and you think it should be then please could you check and email me with the link to the post that shows your progress. My email is hazelhenry @ hotmail . com (omit spaces).

Please could you remember when posting updates to please please post before and after pictures as it makes it a lot easier to moderate.

There are a couple more days left this month to get your updates in. Remember you need to post progress for at least ten months to be entered into Rachael's giveaway. And also remember that progress is progress no matter how big or small.

Happy stitching for September!


Hazel's August Update

Claire's August update (B&R)

Quackworth progress

Here's this week's progress after my Friday SAL. Fingers crossed I'll be finished next week

Hello peeps.

Hi everyone. Just to let you know that Rachael has asked me to help out a bit on this blog so I will get the progress lists sorted on the right hand side. Please could I ask everyone to check their posts and go back and edit if necessary. You should have two pictures on each post - one pic from the last month and one picture showing your progress.

This is a perfect example of how each post should look.

I know this might be a pain for some of you but it would really help me out a lot and will make the job a lot quicker. Otherwise I am going to have to go to and fro through the months to check progress. I will give you a week then I will sort out progress lists.

Thanks for your support. This is a lovely group.

Every Friday I do a SAL with a friend and our current project is Quackworth. So far I'm loving it but after 2 weeks I'm half done so I think we'll have to start talking about what's next soon

I'm using sparkling slightly summer from Sparklies and good old DMC 815

update for August - and a FINISH!!

I have been having computer issues for the past few weeks.  One good thing that has come out of it was I had more stiching time
