Here's where the WIPs are at this point:
Princess and the Dragon by Charting Creations
Still working on fixing the mistake to the left. I think I will try and keep this within reach to add a thread here and there until I get all the way down to the left corner.
Under the Sea SAL by Durene Jones (through Lakeside Needlecraft)
Shark is done, including back stitch. I still have 3 fish (I think) and a few bubbles and seaweed to complete before February is complete. I hope to stick with this one and try and catch up since it fits with Theme-tas-stitch's April Showers theme as well. March is more fish, and I've been stitching them as charted, but I might branch out into some of my hand-dyed stash for that month. Also, the April edition has a submarine!! I can't wait to get to that. I thought the shark was cool, but the submarine is awesome! I saw someone finish it with hand-dyeds and it looked amazing, so I may have to pull out hand-dyeds for it as well. It's charted in greys.
April by Palko-lap
I think I should have gone with another thread for April since the yellow doesn't show up all that well, but it's stitched now, so it's too late to change. I would like to get this mailed soon to my Grandma.
Wednesday Letters from Nora - H SAL with Heather
Heather contacted me that we both had this chart, so we could stitch on it together. Wednesdays seemed to be our less busy days, so we started last week. I initially started this one last year and it was here after last fall:
and now here:
I had to frog all of the dark purple in the first photo and change it to the lower photo version. The new version of Smoke is much lighter. I took a photo here to show you the difference:
It's frustrating to have to frog that much, but better now than later. Unfortunately I'm also starting to think I might have my fairies too far apart, but I'll get DH's input on that before I have to frog even more of this one and possibly start over. Ugh...
So that's where I'm at since the start of April. Not as much progress as I'd like, but that hardly ever happens anyway. My plan for today is to get DH's input on the fairies before he has to go out tonight, then possibly be frogging or stitching on H. After that I'll be back to the UTS SAL possibly for most of the month. I'm debating about a new water start in the last week of April, stay tuned! :)
