July 2010 Progress for Sharon in St. Louis

Photo above shows my tiny bit of progress for the month of July, although it seems as if I stitched that octagonal motif with the swan at least three times. I kept making silly counting errors, and spent almost as much time ripping as stitching. June's progress is shown below for comparison. Only three motifs and a little more personalization and she will be ready for the framer.

Keep up the good work stitchers.

Helen's July Progress

Haven't done much over the last couple of weeks but luckily I got quite a few hours in earlier in the month. I was going to use different colours for the inside motifs but I think I've changed my mind and I'm going to stick with the blues. I just need to stock up on more skeins now!

The top photo is actually May because it's the last "full" picture of the design.

Sandy's July Progress

Here is my Bea as of June.

I have worked very hard on Bea this month. I'm on the last motif. I just couldn't get it done tonight for the finish. I will be posting a finish in a day or two.

Shari's July Progress

Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think you will see that I made a ton of progress this month.
I am on a mission now. I counted what I had left about mid month & set it in my head....ok, this CAN be done by the end of the year. I had 12 motifs left at that time. I told myself that I have 5 months left in the year. That is 2 motifs per month, with 2 extra to be done somewhere in the 5 months. Well, I kept working & now I have even less than 12. I forget.....9 more?? I can do it!!!!
I love every stitch & will be sad when it is done, yet so glad too!!!

Shari's June Progress

I know, it is early morning on the 1st of July, but I worked literally until bedtime last night. I was determined to finish TWO motifs in June & I did, but didn't feel awake enough to post it last night.
I really, really love how this piece is looking. I just really wish I had more stitching time, for all that I want to work on. I have so many projects on the go & so many more that I WANT to do!!!
So, here you are! My BP progress for the month of June.
