I haven't done one of these in a while... looks like the last time I posted about my stitchy goals, it was way back in March! But I'm ready for a challenge again. :3
- complete and return the two band sampler RRs I'm working on (already finished one!)
- complete Gypsy Mermaid's tail (and fin!)
- finish A Day at the Beach
- no new starts!
- continue with Stitch from Stash!
That should be reasonable. I've already done a big chunk of Gypsy Mermaid's tail this weekend, so I'll probably have her done early in the month. I needed a break after the first band sampler because both of the pieces I have right now are Sweetheart Tree. I love ST but all those delicate backstitched vines were making my eyes explode, so I'm taking a Mirabilia break for a bit. :p
Here's the round robin pic! The colors are a lot nicer than shown here, but of course I'm always taking pictures late at night and the lighting is no good...
And here's the mermaid so far... I hated the orange tail at first but it's growing on me. I'm still not sure about the bright yellow in the middle but I don't think I'll be making any changes at this point. Probably.
No recent pic of A Day at the Beach, but here's how it looked a while back. I've already added three of the yellow shells and some of the border, but I got annoyed with it after making a bunch of stupid counting errors. It's not hard, just kind of tedious...
That's all for now. Hopefully this will be a successful month!
