May update - Masquerade

Just made it for this months post, time seems to be flying by.

Current progress - May

Previous month - April

Sorry if pics may appear a bit on the large side - I am experimenting using my iPad.


Another Update

This month Fall Mandala came knocking and I answered.  I think I got at least 1/4th of the outline completed but just had to add some color.


Fall Mandala 2-6-11


Fall Mandala 5-30-11 


May finish THoM

Below - start from March; Above - finish in May

I missed April because I had no progress to report, but put the pedal to the metal and finished This Heart of Mine for May. Learned a lot about using variegated/overdyed floss for the first time and about stitching a symmetrical design - first, you cannot use the loop method with variegated floss - learned that after putting in the first couple of dozen stitches! Second, even if a chart is both vertically and horizontally symmetric, you cannot keep turning it clockwise - yes, I ended up with large chunks of stitches "going the wrong way"! This is why I used cheap floss and linen for my first effort with both a variegated floss and a monochromatic design :-) I plan to continue my education by tackling either Pizzazz or Pot Luck next - need to dig through the fabric and floss stash first. See you in June....

Red Square, a new start

Hi all
It turns out that making a new start was harder than I imagined, when there are sooooo many gorgeous IC designs to choose from and I have half a dozen kitted up and ready to go.
I opted for a smaller design this time as I am waiting in anticipation for next month's Gift Of Stitching mag and it's new IC design (which looks like it might be a companion to B&R) hmmmm....only a few days to go...

May - New Start

Hope you have a great month with lots of happy stitching : )
hugs Liz x x

May Tanglewood progress

Finishes, New Start and more

Well, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who hasn't been posting much. But the stitching hasn't been neglected....

Cercles is finished!

Here is it framed - sorry about the big flash spot, but without the flash, the glass was reflecting everything in the room.

Once it was finished, I decided to celebrate by doing a small project for a change -

I'm still making progress on Second Chances - I'm actually closer to being done than I realized:
Last post


And just for the heck of it, I started Pizzazz:

Poor Alchemical Romance has not seen much work since my last post:

Once Second Chances is finished, I have Aventail, Here Comes Treble and First Bass all waiting......

Have a great summer!!
