Weekend Stitching

With being at the Get Together on Saturday I didn't work on Celtic Banner. 
Well I took it with me and had it all set up to work on when I spotted a mistake and I wasn't in the mood to frog it right then so I put it away again.
So I worked on Joyful Summer instead.


I spent Saturday night and a good chunk of Sunday at DBF's so Celtic Griffin got some attention.


I spent Sunday evening on Celtic Banner and after frogging the mistake I almost got the 4 boxes finished.


For a few weeks now I've had the nagging doubt that the fabric wasn't long enough so this morning I layed it out on the floor and got the tape measure out.
I was almost right, I'm going to 1/2" left at the end so I'm thinking I'll miss out the backstitch border a little further down as that will give me another 1/2" of space at the bottom for finishing.

Love JS - such a happy & colourful piece. The Griffin is growing well & CB is gorgeous. Glad you've been able to fudge things so you'll have enough fabric. :0)

Lovely pics - how annoying to not have enough fabric (I seem to do that all the time) - but great that you've foubd a workable fudge. I hope the rest of CB is all plain sailing - with no frogs!!

Lovely progress on all of them!
Isn't it annoying when something goes wrong? But at least the fix for this wasn't too hard.
