Mel had the bright idea of giving Mum 70 presents for her Birthday, 23 from each of us and the Kimono as number 70 so one of the gifts I did for Mum was to raid her kit drawer and make this up for her.
The design name escapes me right now but it's from Oak Tree Crafts
I didn't set any goals for June other than finishing my weekend project
For July I'd like to
Get back into my routine as much as I can
Pick a new weekend project
Finish off a few beading projects
Start the new paid project that's arrived
Get some blog posts up!
As I said in my last post I had a very, very busy month in June and so stitching time vanished most of the time and I had one very important beading project to complete which caused me no end of problems but I did it.
Have my Birthday start Done
Finished the second paid project Done and I'll get round to posting pics
Work on the Sparklies model No
Catch up on my ornaments No
Finish my travel project I think I did
Pick a new travel project I think I did!!
For June I'd like to
I never actually got round to setting goals for June other than wanting to finish my weekend project which I did and have yet to wash and take pics of!!
June was a very, very busy month for me and I was away from home for most of it which is one reason I didn't post goals the other reason is that I have a new man in my life and so we've been spending A LOT of time together when I've been home so not much crafting of any sort took place.
This is another one of those posts I've been meaning to do for a while and never quite got round to it!
I finished egg number waaaaaaay back at the start of April but never got round to taking a pic of it until a couple of days ago, I have no idea why that is I've looked at it often enough and thought I must do that and then haven't
Anyway here is egg number 3
It's so small that you have to use size 15's on it to get it to work correctly. I have to say I think it's my favourite of the set but that probably has something to do with the fact I used one of my favourite delica colours for it
It's getting to be a very bad habit of mine posting late for the TUSAL (I'm going to blame it on there not being an app to blog with on the ipad)
I know I should be adding links to tell you all about it but it's late and I really should be going to bed but if I do that this post runs the risk of not happening at all so I'm going to carry on and hit schedule as planned once I'm done
First my stitching orts, I've added ones from Alana, Bears, Statement flowers, Angel in the clouds and 2 paid projects that I'll be sharing towards the end of the week (in theory anyway) oh and there are a few bits of sewing cotton from hexie production as well
And my beading orts.
I've added ones from the 3rd egg, March's ornament that I can't finish yet, lots of bali bangles, vase, something I can't share yet and from a commission I'm currently trying to work out how to do.
For April I said
Finish March's ornament No I've had a few hiccups with it
Bead April's ornament Not got that far yet :(
Work on the Sparklies model No not touched it :(
Have a new start This one I've done but only because it's a paid project (and I've finished it)
For May I'd like to
Have my Birthday start
Finished the second paid project
Work on the Sparklies model
Catch up with the ornaments
Finish my travel project
Pick a new travel project
I stitched every day in April, had 2 new starts and 2 finishes one of which was a new start and worked on 5 projects in total over the month.
The house is still in complete turmoil as the decorating is done after the damp proofing because it's only getting worked on a couple of days a week as the help is available.
The start of the month saw Lucy and Teejay visiting and my Mum had her hip replacement done so much time was taken up with hospital visiting.
Bowling season is underway now so stitching time drops but so will my weight over the summer :)
I started this last year after a friend made a necklace and it was going to be a necklace as well but I decided in the end I would get more use out of a bracelet plus I was getting bored of making them!
I pulled it out and finished it after the monthly challenge in the facebook group was for carrier beads last month.
I've just noticed that they all look like they are different heights but they aren't it's just the patterns I used.
