First, the Theme-tas-Stitch catch-up! This is hosted by the amiable Kerry of Ramblings of a Biscornu Addict. We're supposed to post on the 21st of the month, but I suppose it's okay that I'm getting it in before the end of April at least. :) It's a very relaxed SAL, so join in if you're up to it and like the themes Kerry has chosen. A few of us have talked about a dragon month in August for the Animalia theme, so you can plan for that if interested.
April's theme is April showers, and boy did we get some at the parade today!
The local chapter of the 501st legion
some huge draft horses
And on the stitching front, I did at least manage to finish the February part of the Under the Sea SAL:
and get started on March:
The top photo is a little more true to life for the fabric. This is stitched 2 over 2 on 28 count Eilat by Chromatic Alchemy with the charted colours.
And I finished the April design from Palko:
With Nile Princess(?) by Jodyri threads on 14 count opalescent Realgar by Chromatic Alchemy.
And got an almost finish on May as well:
Stitched 2 over 2 with Jodyri Over the Rainbow (love this thread!) on 28 ct? Ice Blue Alexandria? I've had the fabric for a while and I don't really remember the details. I'm shoe-horning this one in since you can't have rainbows without water. :D
I had estimated my thread lengths to finish and was just short. I feel like this happens every time, that I underestimate by a good 20+ stitches. Does anyone else have this issue?
I'm glad to post again and will have to catch up on all your blogs now too. Hope you're all well and have had a good couple weeks!
