February Progress on 2015/2016 Challenge Pieces

Good morning everyone!

Another month and another progress report. I'm sure that it's not going to seem like five minutes between these monthly postings.

For February I decided to carry on with one piece from January then pick out two different pieces for the rest of the month. I think that working on neglected pieces last month made me feel a little guilty that others also need to feel loved.

Here are the projects I chose to work on:

Dreaming of Dolphins from Cross Stitch Collection March 2001
started 7th January 2015; last stitched on 4th June 2015 (shame on me!)
almost finished the third dolphin - the pattern, fabric and blues are all lovely to work with

Little Black Cat Coffee by Heritage Crafts
started 2nd February 2015; last stitched on in January 2017
continued working my way down - so close to finishing this one

The Milk Train by Heritage Crafts
started 24th February 2015; not stitched on since then (shame on me again!)
continued working my way down, then in from the right as I needed a change from the really pale colours!

During March I am hoping to finish Coffee and stitch on three more WIPs. I already know which three they will be but you'll have to wait until 1st April to find out!

Back in 31 days with another month-end progress report.

Take care,

  6. Great progress! 2015 projects aren't old enough to feel shame about. ( shhh...I have a project from 2012, don't tell anyone;)) unfortunately the 2012 apocalypse didn't happen to cover up the shame...haha.

  7. I just love your Dolphins. Looking forward to seeing more of Coffee Cat! Great progress for the month of February.

  8. Great work on your older projects. Preeti is right, 2015 is nothing!
