This month I've added orts from Namaste, Mary Wigham, Sunflower (that I've just realised I've not posted!), Schoolgirl Lessons, Mel's Rose for her 21st, some normal sewing thread from the finishing I did and of course lots of colours of nymo/KO/C lon from beading and making lots of diamonds.
And yes I know it looks like my vase is falling over but it's not, it was nice and flat I'm the one that's wonky :)
Last week I sat down with the aim of finishing a couple of beading projects off and did just that over a few days.
First I finished off the large cube to go with the earrings I made a few weeks ago, I had 3 of the squares sat on my beading mat until I had chance to get some more of the gold ones and once I had them they still sat there for a few more weeks!
This little angel has been sat beside my mat for a couple of months now whispering in my ear to please add her other wing cause she was dizzy from flying in circles for over 5 years. Yes you read that right she's had one wing for over 5 years, she was one of the projects from the weekly class I used to go to and I just never got round to finishing her off. I also think she's the reason I'm not very keen on brick stitch, her wings are a pain to do with an increase in every other loop on alternate rows and at both ends on every row.
Here she is in all her glory and yes she is standing up without support
And the back of her
She's the last of the projects from the regular class and I could say she's my ornament for June but she isn't, I've got yet another stocking almost finished for June
I've been meaning to post this for a few days but keep forgetting must be my age :)

Finish a beading project that's already started
I stitched for 83 hours 55 minutes in May, not bad considering I was away for a week of it and didn't really stitch that much while I was. I had 3 new starts and 1 finish which was one of the starts and I had one day with no stitching but I did bead all day at one of the groups I belong to
