3 Month update (Sep-Nov)

It's well past time for an update on my WIPs!  Here's where they stand:

First, an FO & FFO:  This is Ginger Friends by Mill Hill:

Progress update on Camelot Sampler by Teresa Wentzler:   (I've been focusing on borders.)

Some finished objects (smalls):
 Xmas with Jane Austen, from JCS 2012 Ornaments issue:

Katie Kitty (a freebie) by Brooke's Books

Boggart Snape by tinyneedle on Etsy

Noel, a Tiny Tiding from Lizzie*Kate

Jingle, another Tiny Tiding from Lizzie*Kate

Katie Kitty, Noel & Jingle will be made into ornaments as teacher gifts this year.  

An update on the Lakeside Needlecraft / Durene Jones Fantasy SAL:  I finished the September Wizard first:
Then I finished my color conversion of the August Pegasus

And October was this cute witch:

I worked on the background of QS Ruby by Rachel Anderson / HAED:

Update on Postcards from the World SAL:
September was Toyko:

October was New York City:

November was Vancouver:

I have the top half done on Mickey & the Gang.  Just the huge car remains.

In September, I started Brave by donastitch on Etsy.  Here's my progress:

In November, I started Pretty Little DC by Satsuma Street. My progress:

Later in November, I started Ghostly Mandala by Ink Circles, but I'm reversing it and stitching the negative spaces, not the ghost outlines.  I copied this idea from someone on Instagram.

That's it for now!  Hopefully I will get a couple more finishes before the end of the year, and I need to FFO some xmas gifts.

July & August Update

I've worked on a lot of different things over the past 2 months and it'd be too complicated to go day by day so here's an update on all of my WIPs:

Camelot Sampler by Teresa Wentzler: worked on the twisted vine section & the left border

A Victorian Xmas Eve: page 3 is finished!  Now I'm a little more than halfway done:

Deep Sea Fishes: I worked a lot on the moorish idol fish (aka Gill from Finding Nemo)

Postcards From the World:  August was Sydney!

Fall Wreath from JCS (Angela Pullen):

Lakeside Needlecraft Fantasy SAL: I finished the circles & outer border and started on August Pegasus:

Star Wars ornaments:  My mom helped me finish a bunch of them into pillow ornaments!  And I stitched more to be finished later: 

Commander Cody

Ahsoka Tano & Bossk

Kylo Ren & Capt Phasma

Ki-adi Mundi, IG-88 & Jango Fett

Mace Windu & Nien Nunb

A new start: Christmas with Jane Austen from JCS 2012 Ornament issue. The quote says "to be fond of dancing was a certain step to falling in love".

And a new start from July: Mickey & the Gang.  Here's my progress.

June & 1st week of July update

I finished Hitchhiking Ghosts by tinyneedle on Etsy.  Here's Phineas, Ezra & Gus from the Haunted Mansion at Disney World.  I mailed them off to my uncle and he absolutely loves them.

I've stitched up June & July on Postcards from the World by Cloudsfactory, as well as finished the frames: 

I've completed a slew of more Star Wars characters that will be fully finished into ornaments for my brother's SW xmas tree.  The ones on perforated paper will be cut out and mounted individually.
Grand Moff Tarkin & Chewbacca

Han Solo, Leia & Luke Skywalker from A New Hope 

 Yoda & Lando Calrissian

A stormtropper, Admiral Ackbar, & Wedge Antilles

 C-3PO & R2-D2, and BB-8

Rey added with BB-8, Finn & Poe (labeled to distinguish him from Wedge)

Wicket the Ewok & Greedo

For the Whine & WIPs SAL on Stitch Maynia, I pulled out this UFO.  Deep Sea Fish kit by's the starting point.  

And here's how much I got done in 5 days...everything above the pink & yellow fish.

I also worked on Camelot Sampler and finished the castle medallion and work a bit more on the border.

I also was out of town for a week in June and I worked on 2 Glendon Place pieces: Red Velvet Cake & Cruisin'.  Here's their progress pics:

Here's the FFO of the dragon I stitched in May...put into a card for my cousin's daughter's birth.

An updated pic of Ginger Friends, that I've worked on a bit here & there as it's easy to grab.

And finally, I have started the Lakeside Fantasy SAL by Durene Jones.  I've been working on the circle frames of the border.  The first character comes out 1 Aug.
