Here's the finished Octopus made into a coaster:
And January into a card:
Plus I finished off one of my DUCJFC 2016 new starts:
It's not fully finished yet though.
As is typical, once I give myself a deadline (Valentine's Day) for my next WIP (Somebunny) I want to stitch on something else instead. I decided to pick up Reflections of Canada by Ink Circles to get a little more done before working on Somebunny.
Reflections of Canada was here on August 13, 2016:
and one night of stitching to here:
and then I remembered that I have a stand, apparently too many smalls makes me forget things that are right beside my stitching spot.. so I got a lot more done the next night:
2 handed stitching is so nice! And I picked up Somebunny the next time I had time to stitch and got quite a bit done while watching A Series of Unfortunate Events, the new Netflix series.
Somebunny was here on November 12, 2016:
I'm really happy with this one, and with the progress I've been able to make in just one night. I really think that I'll be able to be done stitching in a week and be fully finished by Valentine's Day. There's no hockey tonight or tomorrow, so I'm really looking forward to the progress I might be able to make just this weekend. I think backstitch is the next thing I'll do to kind of catch up to the cross stitch.
I hope you all have good stitching weekends, Happy Stitching!
