Theme-a-licious Update - Jubilee July

My goal for 'Jubilee July' was to get back to my rotation, which was what I did!  I posted photos of the first couple of projects in my check in post.

The other two projects I worked on for this month were a new start - Merry Cox's Basket of Flowers pinkeep from SANQ Spring 2004

I'm almost two thirds of the way through this, as I'm stitching this over one on 36 count Lakeside Linen it's tiny. I've included the scissors to give an idea of scale.  I've gone for various Gloriana silks from my stash rather than the recommended threads.

For the final project in this rotation round I returned to 'Along the James River' by Forget Me Nots in Stitches.  I've started work on the inside of the pocket, I got all the inside basting done and started on the borders

Next months theme is 'Airborne August'  Heather's guidance is 'What's that soaring through the air with the greatest of ease? It's the things with wings on your WIPs!'

Of my current rotation projects there is a dearth of anything with wings (although I'm sure there must be some birds hiding in the trees in 'A Stitch in Pine'!)  so as I'm off on holiday later this month I'm going to pull out With My Needle's 'Fruits of the Vine' to take with me as there are plenty of birds on it.  As I'm hoping to finish 'Basket of Flowers'  this month I shall start an old freebie from Barrick Samplers called 'Five Birds'
