Late Again!

Oops, this is starting to become a habit. At least I have a bit more to show on Aging Artfully this week.

Still need to crack on with it, even though there are several other pictures I’d like to be working on J.

Have a great stitching week!

IHSW April

Wow, another hermitting weekend has flown by! At least I got a little bit of stitching in this time J. Here’s my update on the ABC’s – I worked a bit more on the next letter (even though I haven’t finished A yet, haha).

Still need to work more on this one than I actually do, but it’s starting to come along now.

I also finally managed to finish all the cross-stitching on the zebra! I’m not posting a picture today as the WIPocalypse is in two weeks and I want to see how far I can get on the back stitch by then. And I also finally finshed gridding my Sailor Moon piece! Phew, did that take a while, haha! Again I’m going to wait to show a photo as this time I’d like to iron out some of the creases first. But this way perhaps there are things to look forward to J.

Have a great stitching week!

Close, But No Cigar

Wow, where did the weekend go, I wonder? I wanted to finish up the black on the zebra by then, but somehow didn’t quite manage. It’s very close now though, so maybe this week it’ll fare better.

Then I’ve been very bad and not worked much on Aging Artfully. Here’s where I’m at now:

Hopefully I’ll get back on track this week, haha. At least the IHSW is coming up, so maybe that will motivate me a bit J.

Have a great stitching week!

When You Really Need to Get There Yesterday...

So, I didn’t fair too well on my WIPocalypse update for the month, but my other stitching is coming right along. First up I have the last two items I wanted to make for my friend’s birthday:

So we have her favorite form of transportation, the TARDIS, and her name spelled out in elements. These are going to be sent along with the magnets of her favorite Sailor Scout (Jupiter) and the bookmark of her house, Hufflepuff, which I’ve shown on here before. I’m pretty pleased as I still have almost a month to finish everything off and get it into the mail J.

Then I managed to make a very small start on the Lizzie Kate piece, the ABC’s of Aging Artfully.

This is for a friend’s wedding in July, so I’ve got some time, but I’ll be definitely be focusing on it for a while.

Have a great stitching week!

April WIPocalypse update

Unfortunately for this month’s update I don’t have a finish to show like I was hoping. The animal heads were going fairly well, but then I started working on other things too and, you know how that goes J. I did make some more progress on it though and I’m a little over 2/3 done:

Just the rest of the zebra to go, so hopefully he’ll come along more this month.

On Blue Moon though the first 5 squares in the top row are done. It’s coming along J.

Only other thing I’ll report is that I’m still working on gridding my Sailor Moon piece. As least I’m onto the bad guys now, so with any luck that will be done by the end of April too.

Have a great stitching week!
