July update

I've filled in more of the colour in the bottom right corner this month and now there's hardly any left so next month I'll finish that off and go back to the outline.

Oh and that dark blob in the top corner is Rosie being a typical kitten being nosey

July Update

drive by posting and sneaking under the wire for this month.

I worked on Cirque des Carreaux this month.  It was feeling a bit left out (yup, was getting glares from the bag).

Jill's July progress - Cirque des Cercles and more!


Since I totally missed updating in June, I figured I better get something up this month!
Here's the CDC - I haven't been working on it as much lately - I've gotten hijacked by the Jardin Prive "Eiffel Quaker" and have been working mostly on that. But I did actually make some progress in June that I never got around to posting:



And look what I found on my trip to Stitching Bits and Bobs!! (not planning on doing the huge anniversary sampler but the "Second Chances" one). Not sure yet what fabric I will be using - and since I really shouldn't start anything else new for now, I can take my time deciding.



I also remembered that I had mentioned starting Alchemical Romance a while ago -- haven't worked on it since, but here's the start:





I think one of the reasons I haven't gone back to it is because I forgot what a pain it is to work with metallic thread!!! Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Claire's July update (Bramble & Rose)

After 5 months of stitching (but only one day per week) I have just about completed three pages of my B&R. Here are photos: before, after and a zoom to show the effects of Morning Meadows (Threadworx).





Viv's July progress

Sea Stars, July 2010Here is my progress picture for July - the progress this month has been on the large green motif.  To be honest I'm finding this one a bit hard going, and am not allowing myself to do the smaller motifs until this one is done :)

Not sure if I shall manage any progress in August, with the children on holiday until September 6th, but I'll try!

July Progress

Here's last months progress on Tanglewood.


July's progress.  June's picture is closer to the real colors. It's dark and dreary here in CA this week so picture taking was difficult.  I managed to do another branch this month. It's stitched 2 over 2 on 28ct Jobelean in Bluebells. I am doing the DMC conversion and substituting B5200 for the clouds since it's on blue fabric.

Tanglewood July Progress

Hello ladies. I hope you are all enjoying the summer as much as I am. (Which, I must admit, often keeps me away from indoor activity). Tanglewood gave me some headaches this month. Somehow the branch on the right side decided to follow it's own tangles, which forced me to frog parts of it three times and made me nearly give up.

Tanglewood - June progress

I completely forgot that I hadn't updated.  Of course I got so little done that I am almost embarrassed to be posting.  Maybe this shouldn't count as an update.  I actually thought I had done more until I saw the pictures side-by-side.  I worked on this early in the month and then never made it back.  And this is the only stitching I did all month!  The yard has been occupying my weekends and we had new counter-tops installed in the kitchen.  Doing the tear out ourselves chewed up any leftover time.  Just a little upheaval that is now over and I am thrilled with the facelift.  Maybe this month I'll have time to sit, stitch and enjoy the yard.
