Monthly Monday Round Up #2

So it's time to take a look at my Feb aims and see how I did. Here's a recap of what they were:

1. Complete parts seven, eight and nine of Papillon Creations (this will
make me only one part behind by the end of the month)
2. I used a Random Number Generator to pick the first of my Crazy
January projects to work on. It chose number ... One... meaning I
would like to complete page one of Fractal Bookmark 322

Well I didn't do too badly. I completed part seven and eight of Papillon Creations and have made a good start on part nine ....





As for Fractal Bookmark 322 I didn't make any progress because I ran out of threads but they have arrived now so I can make a start.

I also finished a restart on Fractal Bookmark 268 as I talked about in my last post ...





That's quite a bit of stitching considering I worked quite a lot of overtime this month. I have just found out that I will be working some more this month. I don't know how that will affect my stitching but I am going to make my aims as normal and hope I get lots done.

My March Goals

1. Complete parts nine, ten and eleven of Papillon Creations (this will get me up to date)
2. Complete page one of Fractal Bookmark 322
3. Make a start on my next Crazy January Challenge piece, which according to an online randomiser will be the first page of HAED freebie Trick or Treat

Happy Stitching Everybody!!!!!

Bad, Bad, Blogger !!!!!

I have been a very neglectful blogger but I have been working so much that it put all my plans for Feb's sewing on the back burner. As a result I probably won't meet my monthly aims but I don't mind, at least I have worked towards them so that's progress. Here is where Papillon is at the moment. I am almost halfway through part eight...









I realised that I hadn't posted on Fractal Bookmark 268 for a very long time (almost eighteen months!!) but I decided to restart it. I didn't have enough threads to finish and the threads I bought to replace them didn't match in terms of dye batch. There was quite a bit of difference so I decided to do it again. I don't really mind as I LOVE this design and I have been able to redo the mistakes I made last time. So far I have redone the first two pages ...





And last but not least my very late TUSAL mostly made up from all the blues of Fractal Bookmark 268 !!!!





Next update will be a Monthly round up and I hope to have finished part eight of Papillon by then as well as making a start on page one of Fractal Bookmark 322.

Happy Stitching Everybody !!!!

Papillon Update !!!!

I have finally finished part seven of Papillon Creations. It seemed to take forever, I made sooo many mistakes !!!!! It was worth the effort as the final result is stunning. This is my second favourite part so far, I think part six was my actual favourite. The colours seemed to work out quite well with this part and they blended nicely ...









Happy Stitching Everybody !!!!!
