May Progress on 2015/2016 Challenge Pieces

Hello all!

It's the end of the month so time for another update on my Challenge WIPs. My plan for May was to finish one piece and work on three more. And I succeeded. Again!

I finished Dreaming of Dolphins (posted previously) and gave attention to the following three:

Gryffindor by Theworldinstitches (etsy)
started 4th February 2015; last stitched on April 2017
filled in the lion, so just the name banner to do now

Cream by Toni Goffe for Heritage Crafts
started 9th February 2015; last stitched on April 2017
worked my way down, filling in the background and continuing  the cream pot
(and I gave the cat his eyes!!)

Red Foxes from the Young-uns Collection by Gloria and Pat
started 14th February 2015; not stitched on since then
finished the rocks and greenery, although ironically haven't started the red foxes themselves!

Once again I'm happy with my progress for the month, finding that finishing one project and changing the others every week or so is really keeping my interest up. For those of you familiar with the term I suppose it's a bit like Turtle Trot..... but on speed!

In June, keeping to my plan, I aim to finish Gryffindor and work on three more WIPs.

Take care,
Rachel x


  1. Great progress on all your WIPs, the rotation system really does seem to be working. Love the diversity of the projects and am excited to see those red foxes appear!

  2. Awesome progress Rachel. Love your rotation idea.


  3. Great progress Rachel! I just love your little kitty and look forward to seeing more of that one.

  4. great projects Rachel, all so different.

  5. Great job of keeping to the plan. You've made awesome progress. I keep losing interest in my project, maybe I should rotate a few to keep my interest up.

  6. Well done on reaching all your goals. The HP piece looks great and is an easy finish for the anniversary this month. Have you seen the new house-themed versions being released on the 26th?

  7. Beautiful progress. I'm so far behind. My May is gone by with pretty much NO progress to show. Glad to see you are stitching for me.

  8. This plan is working out really well. I get so easily distracted. Congrats on all your success
