3.20 End of Year Update (ie, what I've been doing recently)

Well I figured it was about time I gave an update on what I've been doing again.  I've actually been kinda....slack...in taking pics recently.  Oh wells.  These things happen, right?

Currently on my frame is this one: Spring Butterflies, from Love Thy Thread, adapted from artwork by Gabrielle Hugo.  It's one of the ones I managed to nab before LTT closed down.

I decided to add a border to the pattern too.

3.16 The Kat-stopped-being-lazy Edition

Last month, I received a RAK from Esty.  It was a pattern by Leonid Afremov, The Loneliness of Autumn (Or Autumn, as I have shortened it for my stitching rotation)

What the picture will look like when finished.

I finally got around to posting pictures, since I know Sarah hasn't seen any of it.  So here we go, a months (on and off, I've been busy) worth of progress on Autumn....
The humble beginnings...





Page one complete, moving down into page seven.




Since page seven was almost done, I branched out to page eight.  Hey, in my defense, it had a lamp-post!
