October goals

Well I did okay with september goals in that I did get a huge chunk of Dreaming Mermaid done although I did not resist the temptation not to start cdc before finishing the page on DM! So here is a bit of what I have done on CDC. This is on 32 count mulberry linen using Thread Gatherer's Spring Frocks and I have used some kreinik 192 to do the main circles but not sure I like it so might unpick it and do a different metallic. Any suggestions are welcome.
Just a start Sept 07

So October goals as follows:

1. Finish DM page 5 and start page 6.
2. Work on Twilight Shimmer for the HAED SAL.
3. Complete Harvest exchange for SBEBB and send off.
4. Work on CDC and find nice metallic that works well for the main circles.
5. Complete 2 motifs on Patchwork.
That should do the trick!

In terms of other news, DH is now in Australia with Hard Fi and will not return till the 10th October - away again! Also I am trying to start getting things organised for the new arrival as I have done nothing as yet. Starting to look at prams and also getting a few bits and pieces for the hospital bag. I know it's early but I like to be prepared. Can't do any decorating till DH gets back but will start to look around for some furniture. Lily needs new furniture and we need a cot and a wardrobe for baby + bedding.

Okay off to do some serious stitching and start meeting those goals. Hope you are all well and have a good stitching week.

Cdc looks lovely in those muted pastels. I like the metallic too, I'd leave it. The fabric is really fab.

Is it 'THE' Hard-Fi? Living for the weekend? DD and I LOVE that song! How cool!!!

Love the mulberry linen! I'm not a metallics girl, so I'm afraid I have no advice for you. It looks wonderful in the photo!

Stephanie said...

Oh I really like CDC, that will look stunning! I'm not sure what to suggest for the metallics - I'm sure you'll find just the thing. Hope things haven't been too lonesome with DH in Australia - only a few more days left!
