August 2015 WIP Update: Storytime Sampler & A Good Marriage

August has finally come to a close and here in Australia it is starting to look a little like spring again. Sometimes this makes me want to stitch more, in a sunny spot usually, but sometimes my stitching time is limited because I take advantage of the good weather. In August I completed two more frames on the Storytime Sampler. To view previous WIP updates follow the links:

Storytime Sampler

Just to remind you all, it is stitched on 32 count Lugana in Dark Fantasy by Colour Cascade Fabrics. This month I started with the Charlotte’s Web frame. I remember reading this book in primary school.

Then I moved on to the Peter Pan frame. This one was pretty fun because I love the pirate sail.

I am now halfway completed the Storytime Sampler and I am almost caught up to everyone else!

A Good Marriage

This is stitched on Stitches and Spice ‘Sandstorm’, also a 32 count Lugana. Lugana is my favourite fabric at the moment. It stitches up beautifully. I made a bit of progress on this project and as it has a deadline of the 4th January 2016, I’m sure you’ll all be seeing it in a few more WIP updates for this year!

Plans for September

I plan to get caught up on Storytime Sampler this month, which will mean stitching 3 frames, Lady of Shallot, Phantom of the Opera and Black Beauty. I also plan to work a little on ‘A Good Marriage’ project and see if I can’t get that closer to completion. I also need to update my finishes list and other various blog things.

Until next time, may all your needles be easy to thread!
