I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

WIPocalypse 2012 - June Report

Hey Blog Buddies,

May was a much more productive month for me than April, so I've got a few things to show you.  Let's start with a finish!  Here's the before photo:

And here's the finish,
Alessandra Adelaide's CT13:

Rainforest Revisited by Needle Delights Originals
also got some love in May.
Here's the before picture:

I added eight more squares since then
(the top and bottom rows):

Last and probably least,
at this point anyway,
I made a start on Raise the Roof's "Crabby All Year."
It's on my list because I've had the charts for quite a while.
So, say hello to June:

"B"?  Really??
Yes, June is "Bugs!"

I had a bad moment with it this morning.
As you can see, I did measure for the center and
basted a line down the middle.
Trying to be careful here
because this is another BAP.
I'm doing all the months on one piece of linen.
Then it hit me:
there's an 80-thread header I forgot about!
I vaguely remembered Joy at House of Stitches
telling me I was getting a little extra
when she cut the fabric.
(I think my measurements were
almost equal to the width of the fabric.)
So I counted, and there's plenty of room at the top!

That's it for this month.
Hope your month was productive, too!
And thanks for visiting!

I love your finish. It's beautiful. And the colors you used are gorgeous. Great job. And the Rainforest is beautiful too. Glad you have enough fabby left at the top for the header, and ewwww, bugs. I could do without those, lol. said...

You have some exceptional projects on the go - great job on getting another one into the finished pile this month :) I'm especially loving seeing your canvaswork progress, and it's giving me the urge to pick up one of mine that needs to be started! :)
