WIPocalypse - August Part 2

Well, I really feel like I haven't achieved much in the way of progress since the last post, maybe I'll change my mind after I've posted some pictures!

Lets make a start with SK Blue Moon:

August P2





August P1



















Pretty happy with the progress on this, although it doesn't look like much, it's definitely all coming together and I think I've finally gotten over my fear of this project.  Page 3 was released today and I'm only just halfway through page 1....I'm such a slacker!

Next up, Lickle Ted birth sampler:

August P1










August P2


























They found out this week that the baby is going to be a boy.  They haven't got any names in mind as yet, but they still have plenty of time.  I have no idea if this will be finished for the birth, but hopefully shouldn't be too late!

In case you missed my last post, I had a new start, just because I felt like it!



















This is a kit I've had for a while that I bought from Colray Crafts (don't worry, they are authorised HAED vendors) that came with the proper chart and full skeins of each colour used.

Last up is another new start, but this is one that was designed by a friend of mine and I'm hoping that stitching it up and posting it on various boards might help bring her a little publicity:



















This is a small free chart called Ravenhair, it's designed by Jennidee and I'm stitching it up on a piece of Polstitches Fairy Dreams from one of their grab bags.  The photo was taken on my phone so really doesn't do justice to the colours.  If you would like a copy of this chart, head over to her blog, Tapestry Moon and drop her a message.

As a last thing, I just wanted to share with you a a picture of something I stitch last month, but as it was for an exchange I didn't want to post anything until it had been received:


This is a design by Joan Elliott from her book "Bewitching Cross Stitch".  It's 1 of a set of 4 inspirational words.  It's stitched on Opalescent Lilac Ice fabric from Sparklies and I changed to beads to white Ceylon pearl seed beads.
