July update Part 2

I'm still doing well on my challenge. I've not started anything new. I haven't had the time! Which really helps.

I did finally pick up my Book of Ink Circles last night. I made some good progress on the frame and started the next part which I believe is part 12.

Castles in the Air has had no progress on it as well as Mickey Mouse. I worked on my Tuscany scissors fob about a week ago when I was getting my brakes done on my truck. Hopefully life will even out soon and I will be able to pick my stitching back up on a regular basis.

July update

It's still early in the month but I thought I would put something out here anyway. So far I've managed to stick with my challenge. I have not started anything new since I posted last. I've been strictly working on a couple of projects. First is Book of Ink Circles. I really want to get this done. I would love to enter it into the State Fair. I missed the deadline for the county fair so I only have the State and local festival to make the entry deadline.

The second project is Castles in the Air by Papillon creations. Lots of color changes, whew! Lots of beads as well. It's going to be gorgeous when it's done, but I'm having a hard time picking it up lately. (It doesn't help that I feel the need to concentrate on it and don't have much time at the moment.)

The third project is my Tuscany scissors fob. There's a bit of color changes on this one too. However it is really cute and I put a needle's worth of thread in it here and there.

The reason I don't have a lot of time lately is that I have someone "new" calling pretty much on a daily basis. Because it's new we talk a lot and are learning about each other. Then there are lots of events happening because it's summer. I don't mind so much setting my stitching down for a little bit while something new and exciting is happening. I know it'll always be there for me to pick up when I feel the need to put the needle through the fabric.
