May Update

I haven't been super busy but I have managed two more finishes for 2015 as well as working on my Glendon Place Plum Pudding & a new Ink Circles design. Hopefully no one minds my switch to a once a month update. I just can't find time to update every week anymore.

Here are my two finishes:

I have two more in the series to compete. I'm unsure if I will want to frame them separately or all together in one frame, but I'm planning to find a spot for them in the kitchen.

Here's my new start, Damask Square by Ink Circles:

It's on 40count sparkly fabric from SilkWeavers with Peacock floss from Weeks Dyed Works. It's sooooooo tiny I can only work on it in good light, with my reading glasses on for short periods of time, but it's going to look so great when it's done. I'm almost a fourth of the way done. :)

And last but not least, Plum Pudding update:

What's everyone else working on? Have any bug summer stitching plans??


  1. I like those beverage finishes. Who is the designer of those? Plum Pudding is looking great! I haven't started Red Velvet just yet but soon. I'm starting a summer stitch today, just kind of hung up on whether to use one strand or two. Once a month update, more stuff to look at, I say!

  2. The drinks are so cute! I do love those Ink Circles designs and the Glendon Place puddings. Gorgeous.

  3. Oh great, your two finishes. I love these hot-drink-smalls. And nice progress on your WIP.

  4. Congratulations on your 2 finishes! Who is the designer? Your WIPs look very nice.

  5. Those two finishes are cute, and the Ink Circles square looks awesome! Plum Pudding as well looks great as ever. I finally started my Red Velvet Cake this month so I now understand where your love for those designs is coming from ^_^

  6. Adorable finishes. I do wonder how you're going to frame/put them up. They'd look really grat in a kitchen area! (^_^).

  7. Two wonderful finishes and two lovely WIP's
