Part 3 finish

I finished part 3 of How Does Your Garden Grow on wednesday night. Part 4 came out after that but I didn't have access to a printer so I haven't worked on it since then.

I've been working on the first "fish" box in the Book of Ink Circles Celtic Mystery.

I stitched more on Castle Ridge, How Does Your Garden Grow, Book of Ink Circles, Fantasy/Magic exchange and TW 2nd day ornament.

Let's start with TW 2nd day ornament - I finished up the inner border and put one color in of the over 1.
Fantasy/Magic exchange - the border is complete. I still have to find a couple of the colors that I need, but I'm stitching with what I have. It's a little difficult using a chart from a hard-bound book, not to mention a color chart.
Book of Ink Circles - the black border is complete around the first box. The black border is complete around the first (top middle) knot. I worked the green over to the knot and put in the red there too. I can't wait until the next part is released tomorrow. I'm considering putting this on a smaller set of q-snaps and taking this with me to work on in Hawaii.
How Does Your Garden Grow - I'm almost done with part 3. I had to frog a bit to get this part right. The first way I chose to do this didn't work so I fixed it. I think it looks really good. I'm waiting for Part 4 to take to Hawaii. (I want to take at least two projects.) Note to self: Get out the Clover cutter for the trip!
Castle Ridge - a little more done on the castle and a little more done in the rocks area. Also did a little in the clouds. Taking my time with it now that it's at least 75% complete. Also started the backstitching.

I'm happy with the progress and there won't be much more done this week. There may be some tonight, but first I have to pick up my truck from the shop then I will test it out by going to run an errand. I need to do a framing job for a friend that I'm putting off only because of this trip and because the frame I bought was munched, but I didn't see it when I initially bought it. I also need to get the foam core for that too. Tomorrow I'm taking my daughter and getting our nails done. I also need to go get some cash out of the savings and finish packing.

2 Finishes

Saturday I stitched for 10 hours to finish a model that I was working on. Then last night I finished Part 2 of How Does Your Garden Grow. I'll post pics when I can.

A finish - of sorts...

I have recently chosen to stitch two mysteries that have been released here on the 'net. (Possibly 3, that one is as yet undecided.) I've decided that I'm going to count each part as a finish toward my 50 Project Challenge. Each person following the challenge makes up her/his own rules. I hadn't considered this when I started the challenge, but I wasn't doing these mysteries then either. Parts are going to be released monthly and if I keep up then there should be some lag time between each part. So it's practically starting a new project each time even though I already have the fabric and threads. So why not count each part as a finish?

All of this is to say that I've finished part 1 of How Does Your Garden Grow.
