Flamin'!

I'm slowly working my way through the confetti in the flames.  Thankfully, I'm nearing the end of them.  There are a couple of flames on the next page and the section on the other side of the chart but then, they'll be done!  I'm sure there is a lot more confetti to make my life fun and exciting in this chart but to have those flames done is huge!

I'm hoping to at least finish the flames this weekend.  I'd like to finish the block stitching to finish the page as well but I'm not going to push it too much.

Frog!

For some reason, I haven't gotten a lot of stitching done in the last week or so.  There have been several books go through my kindle though.  

Then, when I do stitch, the frog visits.  Twice!  I've got one fixed and the other will be fixed tonight.  Here's where I am after last night.

Finish #2

Romantic Rose Garden is finished!




I brought Lust up last night but I haven't put any stitches into her yet.

Almost there!

Yesterday, I finished all the stitching on Romantic Rose Garden Mandala.



I did start beading but I didn't get very far.  I'm hoping to get most if not all of the rest of the beading done tonight.  Then, I have to decide what to work on next.  

Should I pull out another WIP or should I start something new?  

This post has my current WIPs and some of my thoughts for new starts.  Give me your opinion.

One last corner...

Last night I finished the last set of  gates in Romantic Rose Garden.  Since I had to move the qsnaps, I took a picture.


Late last night I also finished the outermost black border...and it matched!  I hope to have this corner and beading done by the end of the week.  This week is starting to look a little busier than has become normal though.  We have a baseball meeting tonight so I don't know how much I'll be accomplishing.

Ineke, you asked if I am tenting my HAEDs and yes, new starts will be tented.  Since I stitched a portion of Chelsea's Gift for her mom, which was tented, I have decided I'm OK with how it looks and if I'm to have a chance at stitching the charts I have, I need to be able to stitch them faster.

Last set of gates

I just finished my third corner and am moving onto my last set of gates.  I'm starting to see a finish in my near future!

Another page finish

Monday night, I finished the south gates of my Romantic Rose Garden Mandala.  This is the only Chatelaine I have as a WIP right now and I'm pushing to finish it before I start another.

Here's the last picture I took


Last night I found the southeast corner and took the border about halfway up the left side.  I'm hoping by Sunday evening, I'll be pretty close to done with the garden in that corner.  I'll let you know how that works out.
