The topic for this month is How do you overcome that feeling that you’re in a rut with a particular project?
I don't have any official rotation at the moment, so I just let myself work on whatever I feel like and at stops me getting into a rut. I only have to force myself to work on one project when it's gift stitching, and then the deadline keeps me going!
This month I have mostly felt like working on my Chatelaine (Tuscany Town Mandala) and the Joan Elliott Faces SAL. I haven't touched any of the other projects yet as these two have been keeping me plenty busy.
On Tuscany Town Mandala, I stitched this gorgeous vine motif (I really love the colours of the beads):
I also added another 'T' shaped motif on the left:
And finished off this Lily motif:
So here is the whole piece as it stands so far:
On my Joan Elliott Faces SAL, I have nearly finished the top right summer fairy and the unicorn - I can't completely finish them though as annoyingly I am missing some of the floss colours. Hopefully those will show up in the next week.
Here's the fairy:
She had so much skin showing, it took me ages to stitch her as I'm doing the skin over one! Luckily the next fairy is a bit more covered up!
Next is a unicorn:
