Part 1 - My 12 in '12
8. Turquoise Baby Sampler - Stitched several more letters, O, P, Q, T and U.
11. Papillon Around the World in 80 Stitches. Started Part 2, stitched the top tulip. Added the metallics to the hearts.
Part 2 - Just Nan-a-thon
Nothing at all for Nan this month. But I did frame Summer and got it up on the wall. This was actually completed all except a dozen beads about 10 years ago!
Part 3 - Theme-a-licious: Jumanji June (birds and animals)
I stitched on two different Round Robins and did some guinea-pig stitching for an online friend.
Regular readers will know I join in with the Needlecraft Haven Freebie Challenge each month. Christine chooses a chart for us all to stitch. June's choice was a rose in an unusual style. The original was nice but I thought of a conversation I'd had with Karen where we'd been planning our Giant Mirabilia RR for 2013. I wanted each person to stitch their birth month fairy but it turned out that three out of four of us were September! So I said we should each stitch her but in different colours for an Andy Warhol effect.
Anyway, I thought this would be the perfect design for that treatment. So here it is, for my 15 Minutes of Fame - Rose a la Warhol:
I stitched this on 16 count aida, hand-coloured with my trusty fabric pens. I chose some vibrant colours and went for it! That yellow is actually fluorescent. Here's the link for the original design by Marie-Thérèse Saint-Aubin.
Finally, the obligatory Summer Postcard Blog Hop mention. LOL. Click the Sunset picture to the right of my blog to find out more.
