WIP Update & Sort of Finish

Well... it seems like last week just disappeared on me and I'm not sure where it went!
But it was an alright week back to work and all. Though our weather has become crappy and cold for August. But what can you do.

I have some WIP's to show you and a sort of finish.
My sort of finish is my ornament for my ILCS exchange. I have finished stitching it but still have to stuff it and finish it and such.
But here is the finished stitching:

And here is a perspective show... the dove is a handmade add-on by one of the regulars at my LNS. I just love it! (this photo is also a much better showing of the colours):

And then onto the WIP updates...
I have been working on the ducky and hope to have it finished maybe by the end of September depending on what I decide to do about the edges. I have two options... one to just leave it as the yellow into the fabric, or to stitch more of the border portion that is a blue colour... comments on this??

I got halfway through Part 3 of the Papillion SAL (sad because part 4 is out now I know). Here it is so far:

And finally my personal favourite and epic project. The Judgement Dragons.
I am recommiting to this project in a big way to try and get page 3 done ASAP.
So look for updates on it for sure in the next little bit.

Well that is my update for now.
I will have in the next little bit the finish of my witchy ornament (just gotta get that dratted backstitch done, I really hate backstitching). And work more on these WIP.
I will try to get some holiday photos posted by the end of the week. Just seem to have a bit of a flickr issue getting them on my blog.

Thank you so much for your comments and stopping by!

That tree is so pretty and I love that dove. I am soooo waiting to see ducky done. I love the shade of fabric.

Tammy said...

All the stitching looks great-awesome button on the tree. I would leave ducky as is--he's so pretty on that blue fabby.

All your stitching is really lovely.

Kathy said...

The ornament is beautiful I love the little dove. A perfect touch.

Your other wips are really looking good. I love the colors in the papillon. Gorgeous.

I love the dove...nice touch..I think you should stitch the blue. I think it would give it depth. IMHO...for what it is worth! lol

Go Dragons! May your recommitting be more successful than mine traditionally is. :) Thans for dropping by my blog.

Love the ornament, can't wait to see it up close and personal so to speak.

WIP's look good.

Your ornament is lovely and your WIPs are looking very nice.

Mel, everything's looking good. I finally started my Papillon also. I wonder how much longer we'll have to wait for the next section to come out.

Stitching looks fantastic!

Nancy M said...

You have been busy! Your projects looks nice. I would try and put some blue around it and see if you like it. I haven't even gotten half way done on part one of the SAL so don't feel like a slacker! Looks like page 3 should be done before you know it!

A very nice finish. And great progress pictures of your WIPs.
