26th of the month - Lavender & Lace Enchanted Alphabet
Then Brooke's Books' Stitcher's Alphabet
Then Happy Hallowe'en with an option on Witches
Then a block of 12 Days of Christmas and one day of the header
Then one day of Gathering Eggs and one day of Memories
Rest of the month - Focus Piece for the month.
In my last post I had completed the 7 Swans-a-Swimming block for 12 Days so it was followed by a few days of daily swapping.
First I stitched quite a lot on the Herald Angel from 12 Days:
I am currently filling in the pale blue and then I'll backstitch her.
I worked all day Saturday so I took 12 Days in to stitch on my lunchbreak and then spent all of Sunday on Nora Corbett's Gathering Eggs:
Today saw the start of my focus piece for the rest of this month. Kerry is doing Just One July and there's a new Joan Elliott July group too so it made sense to stitch Joan's Mermaid from July in the Magical Year of Stitching. I started her last Summer for the Olympic challenges and very unusually did not note down the fabric. It's either Sparklies or Crafty Kitten, most probably the latter and it's beautiful!
Finally, the Blogger of the Week blog is going really well. I am so pleased with all the comments everyone is leaving and being able to introduce people to new-to-them bloggers. I'd love to have more people I didn't previously know featured so please mention the blog on your blog! I've also decided we should have a little competition when we reach six months so pay careful attention and watch the blog for more information!
