A Belated update n.4: Second Sal's progress

After three weeks this is how my September Cat looks like. I haven't stitched as much as I wanted to by now, but I still hope to be able to finish it by the end of the month.

A Belated update n.3: A touch of spring

With the new threads I put some stitches on Season of Hope. I'm not satisfied with this project because of the fabric. It's a piece of 14ct ecru Aida I bought a year ago and really I don't like it. It's like the older it gets the more the woof broadens and gets less tight. Sorry but I can't explain this any better.
Anyway this is my last progress on SOH.

A Belated update n.2 9/20/07

Today I recived the order from Sew and So: 30 gorgeous threads for my current and future projects!

A Belated update n. 1: 9/9/07

Exactly two weeks ago I finished Season of Rest. Now, finally, I show it. Someday it'll become a little pillow but really I don't know when.

Last day of holiday

As I said... today is my last day of holiday. Not that I'm sad, I always loved being back to school, but this also means that my first year at university has alreay passed. Oh my God, I can't believe it!
And talking about university, this week I took my last exam and I passed it, which means that I managed to pass (and with good marks) all the exams I was due to pass in my first year! If someone would have told me so when I started it one year ago I wouldn't have believed him!
I think there are a lot of mistakes in these few lines, sorry about that!

As for stitching, this has been a crazy week since I stitched very few and on many things so the progresses are really too little to be shown.
Starting tomorrow I'll try to make a rotation and to stay stick to it.

And last but not least, big congratulations and wishing wells to my cousin Patrizia who's gatting married just today, in fact I should be getting dressed for the wedding right now!
So, better to go!

A Belated Happy Dance!

Two evenings ago I finished Daisy Lane Cottage by LHN. I started it sometimes in May, just put a few stitches on it and then I'd abandoned it, as always. Then I picked it up two weeks ago and now it's finished. Here it is:

First progress

Here's my first progress on September Cat from Calendar Cats for the seasonal sal. Another proof of my slowness as a stitcher: this is a two evenings progress... I know it's very little.

Anyway I just have to thank Nicki again for setting up this sal: stitching a cat a month for it I'll be able to finish this project in a year, while, without it, I think it would become another "just started and never ended" project of my.

Seasonal Sal

I finally decided what to stitch for the Seasonal Sal, which starts today, and I chose Calendar Cats. I'll be stitching the three autumnal cats, one per month and if I'll finish before the end of the month I'll put some stitches on the other chart "A path in the wood".
