10-11 May: New start or Ginger Friends, a Mill Hill kit. I continued to work on this on the 11th because my daughter wanted me to.
12 May: I started this cute dragon to make into a birth card for my cousin's soon-to-be daughter that's due in June. This is from the Ultimate Cross Stitch Fantasy book.
13 May: I continued to work on the dragon a bit more and got this far:
But then I started a new piece: Cruisin' by Glendon Place:
14-17 May: I finished the dragon:
And then worked on a WIP for 3 days: Red Velvet Cake by Glendon Place:
18 May: I started Fall Wreath from the JCS Oct 2011 (non-Halloween) issue. I just love these colors!
19 May: I finished Skating Penguins. I will make this into a Xmas card or ornament for a friend.
20-22 May: I worked on a WIP: A Victorian Christmas Eve by Sandy Littlejohn & Deborah Lester. I'm on page 3 of 6. The pic on left is my starting point and on right is my progress after 3 days with a small pic of the finished model.
23 May: I started & finished Emperor Palpatine by weelittlestitches for my brother's Star Wars xmas tree
24 May: I started my first HAED! This is QS Ruby. I'm stitching her 1x1 full cross on 25ct lugana. It was a busy day with the kids so I didn't get much done.
25 May: I started & finished Darth Vader by weelittlestitches
26 May: I worked 1 day on a WIP - Camelot Sampler by Teresa Wentzler, to get my 3 days for the month working on it but I didn't take a picture because most of the time was spent making floss cards for all the blended symbols.
27 May: I stitched a bit more on Ginger Friends - no picture.
28 May: I worked more on QS Ruby and got a lot done since it's only 2 colors in the top left corner:
29 May: I started Hitchhiking Ghosts by tinyneedle on Etsy. This will be for my uncle who loves The Haunted Mansion ride at Disney World.
And today, I'm working more on the Ghosts and will see if I can finish it this month. Almost time for Whine & WIPs! I plan on working on Camelot Sampler, A Victorian Christmas Eve, Tropical Fish (a UFO) and Haberdashery (needlepoint) but we'll see how my plans play out. I will be out of town for a week in June so I might take something else to work on for that.
