Bonnie's February 2011 update

I only have an update for 1/3 of my Ink Circles projects at the moment.
I have been consentrating on a different design, but did get a bit done on Bramble

Sorry the pic isn't the greatest




Here's my February progress (top) compared to last month (bottom). I would have gotten more done but was held up by the flu for a week, plus I have decided to take up knitting too - only so many hours in the day! I continue to really enjoy this piece, and am considering in future using the individual motifs in other ways - one of my friends loves the crown chakra and I may make her an ornament out of that single one.

Feb Update

I worked a bit on Fall Mandala this month

Tanglewood progress for February

Hello everybody. I was extremely active on the stitching front this month and got quite a bit done. The bird on tanglewood somehow reminds me of Harry Potter's Hippogriff, so it was double fun to watch it slowly evolve.

Tanglewood - February Update

Just a quick update, I finished the sky!  I did get the brown thread ordered to finish outlining the branches and I have the Hawaiian Mandala and Namaste kitted up.  I am on the road for two weeks next month so Namaste is coming with me.  I think it will stitch up quickly.  I pulled threads from my stash rather than buying so the colors will be a little different but still proper for the Chakras.  So without further ado January and February.

A Mid Month Mini Update

Hi all
Just a mini update post bc I am working on a scroll frame. Stitched the middle 3 pages before joining and have just finished the top 3 pages.

January

mid February update


... and scrolled down to the bottom
(it's like a new start, I haven't seen this bit since before Christmas...)



This is my first time using a scroll frame, I think perhaps I will start at the top (or bottom) of the design next time. If anyone else in this group uses scroll frames, I would welcome hearing what your preferences are.
