And the whole thing:
This could actually be a finish but there are various words and phrases around the edge which I will be stitching for the September theme.
As you saw yesterday, my Ten-a-Day project is almost finished and a number of people asked if I will do another project in the same way. The answer is Yes, I started one on the 1st July! It was obvious that Spring in the Square was not going to take a year so I thought the halfway point of the year was the perfect time to start Summer in the Square. Here is my progress after 31 days:
(edit - that worked, if you are listening with the sound turned up you'll hear the Small Boy whooping with joy in the background!)
Spendingwise we have started a new Stitch from Stash. same rules as the first six months. My budget stays the same and I won't be taking credit for finishing. Unless someone is going to give me real money for finishing a project!
This month I treated myself to two Jardin Prive charts, the Needlework ABC which has been a mystery SAL this year:
I also succumbed to a subscription for the Australian magazine Inspirations thanks to Janet Granger showing the most wonderful etui on her blog - Janet Granger. It's absolutely stunning, it's not cross stitch so I'm highly unlikely to make it but the magazine is a thing of beauty and I have a little bit of extra spending money this month so I spent it! Luckily magazine subscriptions don't count for SFS.
