Starts, finishes, and right in the middle: not in that order.

I picked up the Heirloom Nativity last week. I’m trying to get the bands done between the shepherds and kings before July. Then I will be about half done with this thing if you don’t count the hardanger at the bottom. That will feel like an accomplishment! 

I need to add the beads to the lace, finish the vine, and figure out the stitch between the scotch stitch and the vine. It seems complicated-at least too much to do when I was tired watching tv.

I love the Gloriana Bellagio (rainbow) silk! Gorgeous!

Last week I finished April for Joyful World-except for the ground. Still thinking how I will approach this with a different specialty stitch in the ground on each month.

I also finished the stitching on the little snow girl:

Just need to put her together.

I started my Facebook Smalls summer challenge, Petit Coeur Blue by Atalie. This is small-it’s in a 4″ hoop.

This silk is lovely too! It’s from Atalie called Bora Bora.

I started my next ornies SAL-the theme for July is animals and this is Mill Hill’s Cat in the Box. 

It’s got a lot of blue. So far not as interesting as many of the other ones I’ve done but I know the end result will be cute. I have 3 Mill Hill ornaments with cats- they are all orange cats so they remind me of my cat Kiwi. That’s why I got them.

I declare this week FFO week! Let’s see how much damage I can do to the stack of FOs!
