July - Serenity Harbor Update

Still filling in the water on Serenity Harbor! I'm now about two months behind (this is still section 5). But hey, slow progress is still progress. Someday I'll get there!



Here's my update pic for 'Unspoken'!

I got about 1,000 stitches done this time around.  Not as much as last month but I'm happy with it :D


Linda's Cinderella Castle

I made a little progress the last 3 days on the castle.




Cinderella's Castle by Kate

It's been a crazy busy month around here, so I have only a teeny little bit of progress to show.
Where I was:
Where I am now:
I added more of the light blue to the top right and started another shade of blue on the bottom left.
Thanks for reading and looking.
Happy stitching!

Paradise in July

Well I think I'm averaging about a page a month.  This month I have a bit less than a page but I've been focusing a lot on getting ready to move.  We have to be out of our apartment next week.  We're probably getting one of those pods so they'll move the pod across the country and so were staying in hotels for a week or two until we secure jobs.  Then we're driving across the country to move ourselves.  The bad part is my cross stitch frame is too big to stitch in the car lol.  I may get a hoop or qsnap just for the car ride :). 

My progress last month got me here:
And my latest progress is here:
Stitch count wise it's over a page since I'm stitching into the next but I still have about 100 stitches left in the official page.  Hopefully the car ride will give me lots of progress for next months post :D.

Susan's July Update

WHEW!! I'm in time for the July check-in.  Not a ton of progress, but every X in is one closer to done.

When I posted June's progress, I was here:

And today, it looks like this:

Hmmm, doesn't look like much does it? BUT that black rectangle is 1/4 of page one. I think if I took all the stitches and mashed them together, I would have a full page done!  Yeah, that thought really doesn't make me feel any better.  I am thinking of adding this to my regular rotation as the once-every-other-Friday really isn't working.

Sarah's July update

I have very little progress to share, but the good news is that I'm stitching again! In fact still stitching for a couple more hours today.

All of these projects amaze me. I know we have all had our times of no-progress but it is just a hobby after all LOL. No need to stress. Everyone is doing a great job and we WILL eventually get them all done.

xxxx Happy stitching in August xxxx

Leonore's July Dark Force Update

There doesn't appear to be a theme for this month, so let's jump right into everybody's favourite - stitching progress!

This month, I finished page 4 and also the (only two columns wide) page 5, which brought me to a massive mile stone: My first row finish!

24.000 stitches in, this is actually the goal I had set myself to reach this year, and I am very pleased to have already reached it. From now on, I'm going to take it really slow, and I might not have any progress to show for a few months at all - there are a few dead lined projects I need to focus on first. I'll try so that this won't be the last that you see of DF this year!

July Update==Not!

I did not stitching this month on His Eye is on the Sparrow.  I have too many irons in the fire.  Had 2 wedding pieces to finish and worked on one of the parts of  Sheperd'sBush Fold (Needle Roll). Here are pictures of the projects I finished and had framed. Our county fair is next week so have been busy finishing up some other pieces for it.
                                                 Nebby Needle--Forever and Always
                                                                 Sunflower Seed,

Sheperd's Bush Fold

Keep stitching!

July's Progress - A few stitches

Well,it is not a ton of progress but a little bit more has been done. I am really getting excited to get more of the rainbow because the Emerald City castle is getting closer. I hope to do more during our little heat wave - unless I melt. Ha ha.

Happy stitching!

Susan is late for June

I forgot to schedule my post, so I'm late for June's posting but I did have a bit of progress.

Here's where Shakespearean Fantasy was the beginning of June:

Here is Shakespearean Fantasy with a few more green and 400 more black stitches:

It is still on the frame so I will probably add the rest of the black thread you see on the right.

As for June's question, I am going to my sister's house for a family reunion the end of this month for my vacation. I probably won't take any stitching with me, but if I do it will be a small.

Until next month.
