Every year on my Birthday I have a new start and this years was Namaste.

The transformation is complete

I finally finished Metamorphosis!!

This is stitched over 2 on 32 ct Heritage lugana using the recommended GAST threads. I wanted to love the colourway, but I don't. (Though I still love the pattern and am considering stitching it again.) I think this pattern would look better using either a single colour gradient or doing black on white (or vice versa).

Not sure what to work on next, but I expect I'll tackle my Cirque des Carreaux sometime soon!

Metamorphosis is getting close!

I've finished the first 5 motifs in this design. I love the pattern, but I'm not as thrilled with the colours. I'm stitching this 2 over 2 on 32 ct Heritage lugana using the recommended GAST threads.

Growth Rings April Progress

Didn't get as much done as I wanted, but did make progress!  I would love to say I am going to make a ton of progress for May, but my calendar is looking a bit full. :(

Progress from March
April's progress

 I am using a hand dyed linen from a grab bag from Hand Dyed Fibers, and the floss is Summer & Smoke(the inside color) and Arctic Ice (the outside color) by Gloriana.
