More Stitching Update

Okay, now I'm going to catch up what I've been stitching the last few months. As you know started the Flaming June SAL but by the time I caught up, I think people were losing interest. I was the only one doing the instalment. In May Michelle from HAED stopped giving instalment. So I continue stiching and was manage to do more than. I'm about 2/3 of the page finished now. I haven't touched it for a couple of weeks now, will need to get back to it soon.

My stitching stand finished and I'm love it. Also recently I came across a DVD cabinet on sale. I got an idea looking at it. I'm converting it into a floss storage cabinet. It took a while for me to finish it as there was some missing part and the hooks took longer to be install. Unfortunately I can't fit in 465 hook for each DMC floss so I have to double up on them. I have also instal a light in it so I can see the floss better. You can see them here together

My GK project has taken me back a bit. It is very slow as there were a lot of blends and confetti stitches. I keep thinking back what I should have said when Marcus asked me how many colours I want in my custom chart. I should have said as little as possible rather than the other way around. LOL. But it's looking beautiful. Stitching on 40 ct is also different. It is a lot tighter to pull the needle through eventhough I'm using the smallest needle. So far I've mange to put in about 1000 stitches. I need to take breaks frequently when I'm doing this one as I get sick of starting a new colour. LOL
