Here we are in August already! I am definitely still stitching, but it has been slow going over the last few months. But I do have a small update for you all:
My fail/Parliament of Owls
Chart: Parliament of Owls by Scott Gustafson charted by Heaven and Earth Designs. Stitched on 25 count Permin linen 1 over 1.
I was attempting to participate in the Heaven and Earth Designs facebook group challenge. The challenge was to complete a colour at a time over a whole page. I failed to complete the challenge on time….in fact, I failed to complete the challenge at all! I love working on my Owls, but I think attempting 2 pages (large sized chart) of the pattern was a bit much for my fragile stitching bug and it disappeared. But here is where I got to before I switched projects.
You can definitely see 3 little owl faces emerging from the pattern. I will probably finish the pages colour by colour when I pick it back up again. But I may have to just do 3 colours or so and then stitch on something else.
My Restart/Pretty Little London
Chart: Pretty Little London by Satsuma Street, stitched on 32 count Lugana in Sorcerer by Colour Cascade Fabrics, 2 over 2.
This was a chart I had previously started on plain 18 count aida and I really didn’t like the look of it. I hadn’t gotten very far so I restarted on the new fabric. It is a dark blue with very subtle grey overtones (it won’t show up well in pictures).
Chart: Sandshrew from Malkibird Stitching on DeviantArt, stitched on an 18 count white Afghan baby blanket.
This cute little ground pokemon was next on the list for the blanket, I had started him ages ago, but only got around to doing the bulk of him in July.
That is it for the update!
I plan to work on my Custom Wedding Sampler and another pokemon. Once my son’s birth sampler kit arrives, I will also start that. If I get really enthusiastic, I will attempt to catch up on my Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery Pumpkin Passport stitch-a-long.
Have a great stitchy month everyone!
