First of all a big thank you to everyone who reads and comments on my blog. I really do appreciate your comments and will eventually reply to those still in my inbox. If you don't receive a reply it's because you are a no-reply blogger, so please consider this an extra big thank you to you too.
I promise July will definitely be the month when I gradually catch up with reading and commenting on blogs.
But for now, it's time for another progress update on my remaining 47 DSDUCJFC pieces. Don't the months fly past when you're having fun!
My June targets were to finish one Challenge piece and stitch on at least four more. Here's how I did:
I did indeed finish one piece.....
..... and I did stitch on at least four more; six to be exact:
Dreaming of Dolphins from 7th January
completed the second dolphin (the gap is for the fin of the fourth dolphin)
Lickle Ted - April Showers from 8th January
added the rain
Tatty Ted - A Tatty Friend from 13th January
finished stitching the teddy
Polar Bears from 7th February
finished the head of the first cub and started the second cub
(as you can see from the amount of progress, I found it hard to put this one down!)
Little Black Cat - Cream from 9th February
added some of the pot
Ravenclaw from 18th February
continued the raven
My July targets for Challenge pieces remain the same - finish one and stitch on at least four more. Any suggestions as to which ones you might like to see me work on during July would be welcome, although Dreaming of Dolphins, Polar Bears and Ravenclaw are already on the list!
And how about a nice wry smile to finish with?
I realise we're only just halfway through the year but I thought I'd let you know I've already chosen my 31 projects for next January's Challenge! Note, I said 31 for January, not 59 (or rather 60 as it's a leap year) for both January and February. Over half of the charts are fairly small (less than 20 hours) so should stitch up quickly. That gives me six months to collect the fabrics and threads together and get working copies of the charts. I think that should be long enough! I just wonder how long it will be before that list of 31 gets increased to 60???? Hmmm, I give it to the end of August!!! ;)
See you soon,
Take care and happy stitching!
