WIP weekend and a couple of finishes.
As its been just over a week since I last posted I thought I'd show you what's been keeping me busy.
I had a finish last Saturday. I love Gilmore Girls so I knew this wouldn't stay as a WIP long. It's by Wee Little Stitches and stitched on something green and sparkly from a Sew It All grab bag with the recommended DMC.
I also finished February from the monthly series by Palko Lap.
I've also been stitching Blackwork Birdsong daily, doing a 6 strand length of thread each day as coverage is 2 over 1 at the moment. When I do down to 1 strand for the infill and the metallics I'll only do a couple of strands. But it's coming along really nicely. The collage shows 8 days of work as the top middle was days 2 & 3.
I've been using the JOD from March madness to pick my projects for this month and I've set myself a crazy challenge of 10 finishes in April, including some of the small starts from March Madness. It's probably do-able but does include 3 small new starts too. I blame the euphoria of a finish on April 1st for giving me the idea!
I've also been watching floss tube for the first time this week. That's been lots of fun and I've seen some beautiful projects and gorgeous stash. I joined stitch maynia on FB too and that's just full of enabling too! I've signed up a couple of the designer of the month SAL's to use stuff I have in my stash. I really need to write it on my stitchy calendar though.
I hope you've been enjoying the glorious spring sunshine if you're in the uk. We had a bike ride to the park this afternoon which was lovely.
