Back to the Melon Patch

I -think- I'm finally halfway done on this part of the garden. Ended up doing a lot of filling in again this week with the honeydew. It definitely brought me to the halfway point on the right side, and close to it on the left. This week, I'll be doing more colors. It's getting there!

Tuscan Blues

I got more blues done on part three. It's coming along slowly, and of course I'm behind again. What's new? On the other hand, I enjoy the journey and I don't stress over having to get it done by a certain date.

Stash Enhanced

When we were in New Hampshire, I found stash! Here's most of my haul. It doesn't break my challenge, though, because I spent money I'd gotten for my birthday and from selling other stash. There's fabric in it and several quilt patterns. It's been a couple of years, at least, since I've added to my quilt stash.

Golden Filigree

I did almost all the golden curls at the bottom of the left arch. It looks pretty good, even if i did have to frog some of it at first. That's done now, it's properly placed, and I even mananged to add some green to the second arch. It's coming along...

Creating Voids

The blues on the second corner are coming out well, of course. I'm almost at the point where the top half just needs its gold put in. That should be this week. I didn't bring it with me on the trip, so it will be Thursday night at earliest that I work on this again. No problems with it and I still love the design.

Dazzling Diagonals

Still working on my scotch stitches for this - and more than halfway done with them. I should be able to finish all of them the next time I pick this up - which should be tomorrow or the day after. I'm on a vacation trip, though, so you never know. So far, since there's -nothing- to do in the evenings here, I've gotten my stitching done then. On the other hand, I went on a stash enhancement today. Pictures to follow soon.

Rooster Goes Bye Bye

This is my other finish of the week - the rooster round robin piece. I sent it home to England this week and hope it gets there safely. With all the full stitches, it went pretty quickly. I know some of you were interested in the pattern. They appeared in several issues a couple at a time in New Stitches a few years back or you can buy the kit through Stitch Direct. To answer Chelle's question on my previous rooster post - I'm currently in two other round robins, both run by British people. One is the calendars and the other is a sealife theme. I'll be doing the French round robin thing again. First I have to get home from vacation and send them a letter. I guess I got spoiled. That was a wonderful one and these others - well, I think my taste isn't the same as the others.
