Whew! I am happy to say that the last half of May Memories resulted in more done than the first half, although...maybe it still wasn't that much...and maybe not what I'd planned on...
BUT HEY! Let me distract you from my failure to meet my goals with PICTURES!!
First up, I bought this little kit when I went to Arizona for the Chocolat class. I promptly finished the bee...
my alma mater's famous "GT" for the back! This resulted in me holding the chart over DF Teresa's iPhone while I sketched in the outline..."pinch and pull" works through paper, did you know that??? Anyway! I finally stitched the curved outline of the "G", and I think it's going to work out.
I started on the fun part of the border of Blackwork Band Sampler.
Finally, my last old class piece for the month. This is an Ellen Chester class from (*mumble*mumble*) years ago. I really love this and it's very fun to stitch. Each red and white stripe is a different stitch. If you ever get the chance to take a class from Ellen, do it! She is a great teacher (and very patient!) and she gives you lots of awesome history while you're stitching. Her kits also use the most beautiful (silk) fibers!
Les Rubans fans...I'm so sorry to disappoint you. =( I really wanted to work on it! However, I think all of this was done on my Celebration weekend, and I couldn't haul it on the airplane. Double fail: There was a lady there working on it (in the "antique" color scheme...mine's "jewel") and I DIDN'T GET A PICTURE!! I promise you'll see mine again, though.
Let's stampede on to...
Is it a jungle out there in your stash? Give some love to the projects with animals or birds.
Here are my plans...
- There's a little cat just waiting for me to stitch on her on Random Thoughts. =)
- Keep a Secret's peacock needs some love.
- The reindeer games are waiting for my Lapland Santa's friend.
- Need...more...squirrels! My Rovaris sampler has quite a few.
