I made a little progress on Polar Mandala since the beginning of the month, but it hasn't been touched for a while. I've kept it out though, just in case the mood strikes.
I've made lots of progress on Lust this month. One of the first things I did was take the black in the border all the way to the bottom of the chart and it fits!! There are a couple of inches below the border. I planned for three but since the fabric shrunk a little when I dyed it and I don't think I accounted for that when I started. I'll take two. It's way better than some of the options!
Here's where I am as of last night. I think I've finished about a quarter of this page. There have been a few nights where I don't get a lot done though so this is good.

Tuesday night saw the end of page 4 of Old European Sampler.
I'm working on page 5 and hope to have it done in the next night or so.
Once that's done, I think I'm going to pull out Chatelaine's Polar Mandala for the weekend and a little color before the 100 day HAED challenge starts and I go to reds.

I almost finished page 4 last night. I'm hoping tonight will see it done then I will start on page 5 so the next time I pick this sampler up, I will be starting the next row.
I think I've decided to take part in the 100 Days of HAED challenge on Facebook. I'm planning on pulling Lust out and see how far I can get.

Saturday night, I finished page 3 of Old European Sampler. I really like how quickly this one stitches up because of the pattern repeats.
I would have made more progress but I got sidetracked into working on the bathroom in the basement. The boys were outside weeding the garden in 90+ degrees so I'll take the basement. I'm not fast and I'm very messy, but I do eventually
I'm planning on sanding in the next couple of nights so I can add the next coat of mud and make more progress. But that takes away from my stitchy time so it may wait until next weekend.

I worked on Sea Witch until I reached my limit on black for a couple of days.
Then I pulled out Steve Rousseau's Old European Sampler that was a freebie at one time though Needleprint. If anyone knows if this is still available anywhere, please let me know. I have a friend who would like to stitch it.
Here's my progress over the weekend. Not much, but there is progress.
