Theme-tas-stitch - Jardin June

It's time again for the monthly Theme-tas-Stitch link up! Head over to Kerry's blog to view everyone's flower/garden themed stitching for this month's Jardin June. 

I managed a little bit of work on my Letter H, and I've picked up Reflections of Canada again, so it has a little bit of progress, and hopefully will still be a finish by July 1st! 

Here are the photo updates:

The fairy has a little more of the letter H again, the darker purple near her wing, and there are some sort of flying leaves with all the scattered green in the center.



Reflections of Canada is stitched 2 over 2 on 25 ct ivory Lugana and it's about 3/4 or more done! I'm using Jodyri thread Ruby Slippers and there was some dye lot issues, but since I'm using 2 threads, I joined up one from each batch and I don't think the difference will be very noticeable. I'm pretty sure this will be finished in good time, maybe this week if it's not too busy. I don't have hockey this week, so I have one more night of stitching. Btw, the central motif is a dogwood blossom, plus there are maple leaves and oak leaves in this one, so I'm shoe-horning it in this month's theme. :)

I'm really excited to be finished this one and move on to another WIP, or possibly catch up on some SALs. Next month's theme is Just One July where we focus on just one project. I could maybe finish up my Letter H and Letter G to be completely finished with the Letters, or I have a Letter L to finish for a friend as well. Hmm.. perhaps July can be a month of letters! 

Then stay tuned for Animalia August that a few of us are going to dedicate to dragon stitching! 

Happy Stitching,

  5. Wow! You've really been cranking out the stitching these past few weeks! I think the blending of the dye lots was a brilliant idea! It makes it look softly variegated in places and I love it!

  14. I love the topic for this month, it's a pity that I haven't had time to stitch something for this theme. I'm sure I would have found several projects I could have worked on. Nice progress on both your WIPs, Tiffany.

  16. Great idea blending the different dye lots. I think it will look fine. You're nearly there and I'm still a month behind in my reading. This is exciting! LOL

  17. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Looks like you are making great progress on the Princess and there's plenty of filling-in space for sports season.
