Not that I won't pack a full week's worth of fun into the next 4 days, of course. And in case you were wondering, today is The Ascension of Bah�'u'll�h. Yeah, doesn't really mean much to me, either, unlike yesterday's Memorial Day. But hey, it's on my Jen Delyth calendar, so I thought I'd just throw it out there....
(I sure hope you have smell-o-vision installed on your computer for this gardenia - man I love these. Too bad this lives next door)
ANYWHO, I did manage to make some forward progress on TWO projects last week (yes, ONLY two) - Rainforest Crunch and Desert. First up, Rainforest, which saw 2 1/2 blocks done Tuesday night at the IHOP, and then another 2 1/2 done at Saturday's PINS gathering, with another started, though it contained a wee tadpole, so I backed it out to a good place and STOPPED. Here it is now:
I need to complete this row, and then one more row of 6 blocks under it, and it's done!
And now for Desert, which is going along pretty well. I am just about done with the very center section of Part 1 - as soon as I finish filling in the blanks with that horrible rayon (which STILL looks no different to me than the cotton), the I can start working on the bits around the outside of this.
And really, that's it for the week :) In other stitching-related news, I did pick up 2 Bent Creek charts in a stash swap on Saturday - Spooky Row (Halloween alphabet) and Glory (American flag alphabet) - both are now kitted and Glory will probably go into the travel bag and get started before Bone Cheeks will - just because wow, I found a really great RED in the stash from Victorian Motto Samplar Shoppe, and I want to stitch it :)
This week, I will keep on with Desert - don't know if I will finish Part 1 - I should, because you know, BEADS. But Secret Victorian is next in line, I think, and then Tuscany - those will be my June focus pieces. And hopefully working on 3 Chatelaines back to back will stifle the screaming coming from Deep Blue Sea & Sparkly Hummingbird, now that I FINALLY got my last order of metallics from SB&Bs (in only about 8 weeks!) So check back next week to see if I got a bead fix or not :)
