My attempt at getting value for money and ordering the 2 strands of Whitewash thread(which was nearer to ecru than white) meant that I ended up ordering some of the 6 strand instead but it didn’t arrive in time for the Fat Man SAL on Monday. This meant I had to move onto another part of the project instead. I did make good progress late Monday afternoon after getting home from work and am really pleased with how it’s coming along. Just keeping my fingers crossed I counted down enough threads and have put it in the right place! The second lot of Whitewash arrived yesterday and will match the original colour on this project so I am hoping that next Monday may see both sections finished.
stitching updates include finally getting some stitches put into the bear
sampler again – the bear now has a head, just a small amount of backstitching
to do on this when a few stitches of the background have been stitched either
side of the head.
horses of apocalypse was worked on during the month but I didn’t get the page
completed as I would have liked.
have been due to the fact I made a start on stitching some Christmas ornaments.
This is the first one in the LHN Christmas ornaments for 2012. I’ve managed to
complete about a third of this one I think – I already have the next two charts
so need to get a move on to catch up with these.
another couple of ornaments worked on from Prairie Schooler – this is a set of
8 so I’m almost a quarter of the way through stitching these little Santas and
then just need to turn them into ornaments. These are nice and easy to work on
in the evenings as they only use two colours.
So my May
stitching goals are
page of Four Horses of Apocalypse
right side of bear sampler hoping to get the banner at the top completed too.
LHN ornament – made up as an ornament
Prairie Schooler Santas shown and made into ornaments
two Fat Man Sal charts
and April charts
how much I can complete this month. I have the bank holiday off from work and
also a week off at the end of May which is a bonus but there are also lots of
other crafting projects I need to try and work on this month too.
