Since I don't have a lot to show this week, I'll give you this a weeks worth of Lust as she progresses.

Polar and Lust

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.

Row finish!

I finished page 5!  

As much fun as this is to work on, other projects call my name.

Polar Mandala came out and I've made some progress.

Page 4

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.

Almost a page finish

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.

A page finish

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.

A couple of projects

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.
