Almost to the End

Once I finish filling in this gold, it's all silver tent stitchs in the background. I'll have the first of twelve(!) belt buckles done. It looks like all the stitch guides use the same illegible font, and the instructions are written in the same way, but if I can get through one, I can get through them all.

Turn of the Corner

I've completed the top part of the third water garden bit. It's slowed down a lot, along with my other stitching, because of other commitments. At least I'm doing -something- on the projects. Next month isn't going to be much better. I've got a full plate in non-stitching stuff for the next two months, but it's good things going on.

Almost Vined

I'm almost done with the vine; just needing to complete the way back. I didn't get to work on it again this week; it's fallen prey to the company I have. I hope to get to it and everything else in the coming week.

This Month's Ornament Start

This month's ornament is Rose Angel from just Nan. As you can see, I didn't get much done by the 24th. Since this picture, it's significantly farther along (about two-thirds of the way) and I hope to finish it in the next couple of days. I picked it because it was a full kit and in my smalls pile and I knew I could give it to someone who likes angels.

Sorted Out

The plaques are all on the same level now and everything's sorted out and on chart. The dark outline is in perle cotton instead of floss, but the perle is much more springy than normal for some reason. It's from Thread Gatherer. Hopefully I'll get to this today. It's next in line, but I have a lot of other stuff to do.

Baby Steps

I didn't get as much done last week as I'd hoped, but progress is progress, no matter how little it is. Some of the white on the flag got added and I started the flowers in her hand. This week isn't looking much better, but maybe next week I'll get more accomplished.

Guitar Done

I finished the guitar this week. It looks pretty good. Now I need to put initials in the banner and do lots of tent stitches.
