Good Progress

Well, I think I'm looking pretty good for my January finishes.  I've got several targeted to wrap up this month - Cherries (Eva Rosenstand), Drosselmayer (Mill Hill), Ballet Silhouette #2 (Lanarte), Through the Woods (Mill Hill), Field of Sunflowers (Permin) and Trio of Penguins (Lanarte).  I'm doing better with my photo log as well so I've got pictures of the updates too this time.  Yay!

                                                    Field of Sunflowers (Permin)

This is the third in the series that I started last year.  I'm finally going to be ready to have all 3 framed for my living room. Can't wait to post a picture of them on the wall!

                                                    Through the Woods (Mill Hill)

The first larger perforated paper project I've done.  This one has a lot of beadwork and I'm going to be glad to finish with the the last color in the next day or so and get this ready for my winter decor collection.

                                                    Trio of Penguins (Lanarte)

So, there were a couple of false starts on this one.  Had to get used to all half stitches over one on 27 ct evenweave.  I was surprised how after a while my eyes truly did adjust to counting those tiny squares.

                                                    Cherries (Eva Rosenstand)

This is the first of four in the series for my kitchen.  This is also my "take a break" project this month.  The large stitches since it's over 2 make this one super easy to work on late in the evening.

                                                     Drosselmayer (Mill Hill)

So far so good!  Ornament #2 for my Nutcracker series - I should have these all finished in the next couple of months - just the Mouse King, Prince and Nutcracker left.

                                                    Ballet Silhouette #2 (Lanarte)

Another over 1 on 27 ct (very soft) evenweave.  I love the monochromatic stitching for a change - so nice to not have to switch threads.

Also, got a couple of new starts this week - Field of Sunflowers by Anchor (a beginner kit I know) but a chance to show my daughter the larger stitches - maybe I can get her started?  Also, I Didn't Do It by Dimensions.  My boys love the adorable puppy on that one.  Although he doesn't look like our Toby he certainly must behave like him.

That's all for now folks.  I'll be sure to post by the end of the month with the final update on the finishes!
