Two Week Cross Stitch Progress

I have finished two coasters since I last posted:

Think Spring


This is the top part of the Lizzie*Kate chart "Think Spring". I stitched it on a pearl fleck Aida which looks very pretty. Unfortunately it doesn't show up in the scan. The second coaster is a daffodil from the "Little Ones" range:

I am now stitching a lamb which completes the four spring theme coasters.

My main stitching project this week is HAED - "Tomboy":

Tomboy


This is what it looked like when I picked it up on Sunday. At the bottom of this page I will get to some ivy which is growing over the wall. I can't wait, although it is doubtful if I will get to it this week.

Last week I stitched on the "Pinn" kit "Japanese Beauty (Reading). This is where I got to when I packed it away:

Next week I am adding to my rotation. I am sticking to every other week on "Tomboy" but the other weeks I am going to do a random rotation on four projects: L&L Celtic Autumn (my own colour conversion); Jill Oxton's Giraffe; Lizzie*Kate Winter Boxer as well as Japanese Beauty (Reading). These are the four main projects from my 101 Tasks in 1001 Days list.

I haven't completed my list yet but maybe I should add some cross stitch because I have some UFOs and they have been waiting many years. I liked looking at your cross stitch projects.

What did you mean on your list that you wanted to make some 'summer' bits for wooden tree?
