I decided to so a snowflake theme this month as the weather here in Aust is getting cooler.
The sweetest sound in the world was my DD's voice on the phone. They are both well. They have been kept up todate with what is happening with the Swine Flu and they are in the process of trying to change a few dates with the Airlines so that they pushed back a further 2 weeks. They are in Chile at the moment.
Here are my main Focus pieces for the month of April. Leaf - again I didn't quite get the half page done. Daydreaming Fairy - well I think I WAS dreaming to think I could finish off page 2. It will get it finished in May and hopefully Page 3 will be started. I am really pleased with how these main two pieces are turning out. When Page 9 is finished of Leaf I will have met my yearly goal. Yippee.
Here are April's Stitching times (not quite as good as last month)
Sweet Dreams - 10.55 hrs
Tocatta In Green - 1.50 (finished)
White Christmas - 6
Roosters - 1.30 (started)
Blue Pearls Mermaid - 6.30
Froggie Froggie - 2.25
O Holy Night - 5.50 (started)
The Lord Giveth - 3.30
Day Dreaming 21.40
Total = 81.35
Here is my New start Butterfly Ball. I had to do a bit of frogging. I discovered that Shanghai Linen is approx 40 count. I started stitching with 2 strands and decided it was too bulky and looked aweful so I frogged and am now using only 1 strand.
Also after the episode with people stealing images of other people's work I have decided to also initial my work in places that make it impossible to crop without it being noticable.
