So, June 10th has arrived. I'm officially 1/3 of the way through the month and I think I've got a whopping one post so far. Not really living up to my plans to keep regular updates coming...hmmm. Seems like a good goal to keep working on. In that spirit, here's the progress for the month so far. There are quite a few pictures here so be warned.
A few new finishes.
What can I say? It just feels like summer to me when I look at this design. Love the little bee charm as well. The only challenge was the crazy small gold beads with full cross stitches through them. I had my doubts as to whether I would finish them - so frustrating sometimes when I can't get that second half of the stitch through the bead.
Yep, another one. So far that's February, March, April, May and June completed (I missed January so that's a 2014 project).
This is the first Secret Needle Night project I've stitched from Silver Needle. It was really fun to use the different threads for a change - some perle cotton and fyre werks metallic ribbon. And that grass skirt - so cool. They even included real Hawaiian shells and little "coconuts" for the trees. Check it out.
Now I still need to finish-finish this one and I do need a bit more of that dark pink perle cotton for the bikini top, but I'm calling it a completion for the month until I find time to get it mounted.
Now for the in-progress updates.
Here's another one that's in progress that I'm hoping will move along a bit this month.
That's all for now folks. More to come this week!
