June Week 1 Update

Last week was Themed SAL on the HAED board, the Theme was "Sky", I sould have stitched my cat (one's name is Sky). The only thing I had on the go that had sky to be stitched was Dragon Charmer - Wall. I started it back in Oct. 09 and haven't touched it since. (I know, baaad) So here's the before (from 09) and the after:

As you can see I am in the upper left corner where the castle is, in the distance. It was fun to stitch on it again, but it's detail intensive so I didn't get far.

This week it's the Freebie SAL so I'm back with Fragile Heart. It is less intense so I hope to get alot more done. We shall see...

Thank you for your comments. In answer to a few:

anojaa , it may be a while before I start Catfish. There is usually a New Start SAL on the board at least once a year, so I am going to try to wait for that. But Catfish is screaming at me, and the silks are gorgeous, so I might not be able to!

Crafty Princess , I'm not really that close to a finish on Goblin Tree, I really am only a little more than halfway. :-) I think I have at least 10 more pages to go. It doesn't feel slower to me because of how close I am to the finish. I have been stitching on Goblin for a long time (many years) so it actually feels faster. I have the color symbols down fairly straight in my head now, after working on it for so long, so the color changes kinda flow for me now. Also, it feels like an old friend that I love to spend time with. When I get back to working on GT it's like putting on an old, comfortable pair of leather gloves (you know what I mean).

Have a wonderful stitchy week!

Well I think you're a bit crazy starting a Wall lol. It is lovely. I have one but I dare NOT start it! And... you're right. We're very close to a new SAL. Woot!! I went for Treasures. Really fancied a bnw. x

i have done a couple of days on Fragle Heart, but i have another that is screaming at me to stitch so i might just have to pick her up to make her stop, and i agree with Hazil i would never attempt a Wall!

You've made great progress on the dragon charmer!
I can see that Catfish is trying to force you to start it right now :)
I love the way you talk about the goblin tree!
