4.5 (b) I forgot!

I also finished Death!


*Basks in the glory of the epic finish*

4.5 Last part of the year 2015

It's been a weird year.  I've put more stuff on Facebook than the blog, but sadly it means not everyone sees it.  Plus it's come to my attention that I forget to post things to my public Facebook, and only into the groups....so even MORE people miss the pictures.
Goal for 2016 #1: Blog more.

4.3 Death page 12


There is a competition on one of the facebook groups I'm in atm, where the challenge for the month is ...page finishes.  Hey, why not I thought, means I can work on Death AND possibly win stuff!  Always good.
Beginning of the month

Page 12 finished!  And it's only the 4th!
Best thing is that having that page done, it means I only have 3 partial pages (2, 3 and 8) and 2 full pages (6 and 9).  AWW YUSS


Another small bits sections, done in Fiberlicious Xmas Wreath and Siren Song

Stitched on 28 count evenweave, 2 over 1 tent stitch.





This is only worked on maybe once a month, when the SAL weekend hits, so it's not moving along as fast as some of the others, but oh well.

Sometime in Jan I rolled out this fairy adaption.

4.1 The 2015 update

Well.  Remember way back when (ok, start of last year, but still), when this pattern began?

Such humble beginnings!



Yeah well, it came back out again this year.  It's my main goal for 2015 to get this finished.  And since I can almost SEE the end of this one now, I WILL GET IT FINISHED DAMNIT.  Anyway, here is what I've managed to get to so far...
