And again I am late! Like every month :D This wonderful SAL is hosted by Measi and you can find the link up post here =)
I did not spent that much time with my stitching this month, the weather improved and I spent a lot of time working in the garden.
This first "WIP" this month was our raised bed:
In front of the raised bed I put some herbs:
I also got a few cuttings from my neighbours rosemary and sage and hope to grow some plants from them.
So a lot of time went into this project, so less time for stitching, but I still got a few stitches in!
First up is Danielle by Sarah Butcher. Oh how I love her, all those amazing colors! It's a true summer project! I got two columns in, so 1600 stitches were added:
I went from here:
I think it's not to far to go until the little bird will appear, I am looking forward to picking this up again soon =)
Then I also spent some time working on Kriemhild and managed to finish another page on her (the second one for this year). I went from here:
The last project I worked on was Eternal Promise by Matt Stewart, I stitched some more trees.
I went from here:
I also started a new project calles "Hydrangeas" by Mill Hill. There is not much to see, especially since I only stitched light yellow on lite yellow paper :D So I will share a picture next month when there is (hopefully) more to see =)
Due to my rotation I still need to work on Wolf Variant and QS Paddys Luck. But I decided to pick up the potting shed by Aimee Stewart for a week or so because it is really calling to me. Then I will go back to working on the remaining two projects and maybe start my first Gecko Rouge project after that (maybe the Sloth?)
Anyway, as for this months question! It's about designers I would like to try, but I am to intimidated to start them. I suppose I didn't make much progress on that front, it is still Chatelaine. They have beautiful designs with so many lovely special threads and stitches, but since they are fairly expensinve and I never really tried special stitches, I am intimidated (like when it's so expensive, it's even worse if I mess it up).
That's it for this month,
Happy stitching =)
