August Finish and New Start

Hi all - lots to say here since I missed July. Sadly I could have posted for July but had camera problems. Luckily that was only the second month I missed so I have to stay on the ball for the rest of the year!

So here is my June progress on Pot Luck. I need to correct my previous post re: the thread color; this is actually Carrie's "Black Cherries." Also just as a refresher - this is 1 over 1 on 28 ct Irish Linen.
And here's my finish for August! It's not framed yet, as I plan to wait until I have several of the small designs done and then get them all framed in coordinating yet different frames and hang them together as a montage. The colors in the June picture are truer to life than the below; I am still getting the hang of digital photography.

Last but certainly not least here is my new start - this is Pizzazz on 28 ct Cashel "Gravestone" from Stitches and Spice, 2 over 2 using HDF Plumage. This floss is so beautiful; I wish everyone could see it IRL. And I don't know what base VC uses for her silks, but it is so far of all the ones I have tried my absolute favorite. It is so smooth, doesn't twist or kink - ab fab!

That's it for me...looking forward to seeing more of everyone's beautiful work in September!

Lovely finish well done Tanya beautiful colour. I've never used VC threads but think I must try them soon. Look forward to seeing your new start grow.

Pot Luck finished up very nicely Tanya. I have just finished another [non IC] project over 1 on 28 count linen - I must say I love the look but wish I discovered 'over 1' stitching a couple of years ago when my eyes could have coped better - LOL.
I think I might join you in stitching Pizzazz, will look through my stash and see what I can find...
