Well! I didn’t have as much to finish up on Random Thoughts as I thought I did! I was able to put in the remaining motifs in a couple days!
Here is a close up of the section I did last. The cat was tent stitch so it was a breeze! And here I had saved it till last!
Since it finished up so quickly, I decided I AM going to attempt the border this month, but if I don’t finish it, that’s ok. In fact I bet I won’t because I’m low on several colors due to stitching with 2 instead of 1 ply. (I prefer the denser coverage) and I will have to order more. I started to pull the threads to mark the border but I have to count and recount the last side because I made at least one counting error in the spacing of the motifs and I need to make sure the border is the right size.
I started my small for this month, it is American Goldfinch by the Crossed Wing Collection.
This is one of my gifts I mentioned last month. It will be a quick stitch. It is silk over 1 on 40 count gauze. I need the magnifier!
And since I can only work on it at home, my “travel” project (for doing at kids’ lessons and waiting places) is the Charmed Sampler from Raise the Roof which I started earlier this year.
Looks like I may just finish it too. It very well could be a banner month!
