September's Goals

August worked out fairly well (You're so right about 3 of 4, Lana! and for me, 1 of 4 would have been a shock, lol!) so I'm trying goals out again.

1. Finish second floor balcony on 'Brinkerhoff Home'
2. Work on Archangel (enough for a scan)
3. 100 stitches on a UFO
4. 1 motif on Mary Wigham (I'm starting one of the larger ones, and I know me. One will probably be it)
5. 10 hours on L&L's 'Mother's Tree'

August's Goals Met?

These were my goals for August:

1. Finish 'Sheep for Thee' - yes!
2. Work on 'Archangel' - yes, but not enough for a scan
3. 100 stitches on a UFO - yes, see pic below
4. 3 motifs on 'Mary Wigham' - no, only one

The UFO I worked on was 'Brinkerhoff Home' by Debbie Patrick, and I got 207 whole amazing stitches done (hehehe) so far!





I plan to finish the second balcony & window before I put it away, but I did want to get a pic up.

I'll put a pic of Mary's newest motif up soon. I'm trying to decide which motif to start next.

Sheep for Thee!

I finished this almost two weeks ago, but I've been on vacation!




The pic is very long (it had to be pieced together after it was scanned) so you'll probably need to click on it. I named the sheep - I'm silly that way - they are (left to right) Patch, Striper, Argyle, Swirls, Dotty, and Mocha. Dotty has ecru french knots; I may change them to dark brown, but knowing me, probably not :D
I took Mary Wigham with me to stitch, and since I've seen some pretty pics of her in different locations, I thought I'd show her off at the farm I was staying at.
Too bad she was a bit wrinkled!

More Sheep!


I'm really enjoying my little tweed sheep. Only 2 and 3/4 sheep to go :D
(you may need to click the pic to see all of them)

July & August

I didn't really have a goal for July beyond finishing 'Achoo!'

I thought I might try again with goals for August, though I've never really made it before :D

1. Finish 'Sheep for Thee'
2. Work on 'Archangel'
3. 100 stitches on a UFO
4. 3 motifs on 'Mary Wigham'
