Well as promised here is my latest update with all things stitchy.
I am starting off this post with what I did for the last couple of days of January and what I earned with my stitching incentive.
So as I had a couple of days free I decided to work on Japanese Gold by Lesley Teare that is in my schedule for the last week of February anyway.
Now what did I earn in January. In my previous post I told you I was giving myself 10 p per hour of stitching and bonuses dependant on size of project. So I earned £11.50 for the hours and I rewarded myself £5 for the five finishes in January had I started both Twas the Night and True Love in January the bonuses for them would have been £2.50 a piece but they were carry overs and therefore only warranted the £1 bonus.
My Daily Project is the Prairie Schooler Alphabet and this month I am continuing with the Letter B. Here is where I left it in January
Monthly Project 1 - Pin Cushion
So I start each month working on my Pin Cushions that were in Cross Stitch Collection magazine and designed by Sheena Rogers below is a photo of the 7 I have already done. What February should look like and finally my progress after 7 days
Rotation 1 - Victorian Charm
Week 1 of the month sees me working on Victorian Charm. Below is where I left it in January and then my progress over 6 days.
Save the Stitches
Having rejigged my rotation Save the Stitches (Blackwork Journey) is now worked on each Thursday.
Below is where I left it then my progress on Thursday plus a close up of my work.
The other day I saw a lady had posted a photo of working with the new DMC Coloris thread and she had stitched them as hearts. So I got to thinking I have Color Variations I do not have the Coloris yet but I am getting them and so I decided to make a heart bookmark come ready reckoner with both these DMC threads on them.
Next week is going to be pretty much the same the only change is my Rotation piece which will be Raven by Mirabilia and this is what my starting point looks like
That is pretty much it but below are the purchases I have made recently and I forgot to blog about.
Well that is it for this week. I hope you have enjoyed reading and looking at my post.
Bye for now
