After my Birthday Project, I worked on Unspoken... but there's no real progress to show. I think that I'm going to stop making it mandatory that I work on it once a month - I really like it, but the last three months or so progress has been bleh. So I think that making it a must-do is taking the fun out of it. It's not leaving my rotation, it just won't pop up as often. I'm hoping if I wait until I really want to work on it, I'll get a big ol' whack done again :D
The next rotation turn I spent on my kit from China, 'Profits Pouring'. It's the printed-ink one. I finally seem to have solved whatever problem was making my fingers hurt. It was apparently the needle - they must have a different metal content than the ones we buy here. It was a good quality, sturdy needle, but once I switched to one I already had, no more red, burning fingertips. So I got a fair bit done!
I had just started the blue bird:
Now it's finished up, and the flowers! That's part three of ten parts.
I'd say I was 30% done, but some of the blocks are much bigger! Here's the piece showing the total of what I've finished:
And I've started the next block, which is three more white birds:
So yay! That much closer to finishing this one! I'm really looking forward to the big pink flower! Here's the full picture again - haven't showed it in a while.
