I hadn't planned on leaving it so long between updates but a combination of life being very busy and trying to follow Andy Murray's progress through the Wimbledon Championships has kept me away from the computer.
So this is a quick update of my progress to the end of last month and my stitching plans for the rest of the year.
At the end of June I had my classes with Lauren Sauer of Forget Me Nots in Stitches. I had a wonderful time as always,unfortunately I didn't managed to get any photos as I was too busy either stitching or talking to get round to it!
I didn't manage to get the stitching finished on 'Along the James River' before the class but I did manage to finish the outer cover during the day.
The second class of the weekend was 'Mistress L's Sampler' but I didn't get more than a couple of rows in. It's going to be put to one side for the time being as I want to finish 'Along the James River' first.
I'm making good progress on Rosie's jumper, I've now finished the back and I've started on the sleeve.
Now onto my plans for the rest of the year. It's time for me to join back in with Heather and the rest of the Theme-a-licious folks.
The guidance for July is 'It's time to celebrate! What are you celebrating this year?
Stitch on your holiday-related projects, OR find some WIPs you know
you'll never finish and set them free'
My celebration for July is getting back to my rotation! I've enjoyed one-at-a-timeing on the 'Along the James River' but now I'm after a little more variety. I've decided to focus on four projects and to stitch on each one for a week before swapping over.
My four projects are Hillside Samplings - A Stitch In Pine, Eileen Bennett - Juda Hayle in Miniature, Forget Me Nots in Stitches - Along the James River and Merry Cox - Basket of Flowers pinkeep from SANQ Spring 2004 (the only new start)
I shall check in next week with my progress to date
