I had a short attention span for stitching this month; I continued working on a few projects and started two new ones. Teresa Wentzler’s Celestial Dragon is still my primary project:

I’ve started working on Teresa Wentzler’s Celestial Dragon again; I last worked on it in June 2012. It’s going faster than I expected; I think I’d rather deal with blending filament than confetti stitching.

This is Dimensions Crewel Butterfly. I had picked it up at Michael’s a while back on clearance thinking I might do it for my niece at some point; when I asked my sister which of several choices my niece might like for her birthday, she chose this. Amazingly, i finished the sewing two weeks before her birthday. I’m not completely finished; I do plan on turning it into a pillow, but that shouldn’t take that long. It’s meant to look handmade (it says so right on the package), and it’s a little sloppier than I might like. My camera and the lighting are lousy; the fabric is actually beige (and I forgot I was using it as a pincushion. oh well.)

This month, I was concentrating more on gifts than WIPs; I did make more circles for the Cirque des Cercles from Ink Circles:

This is a late gift for my nephew for his birthday (last Tuesday); the chart came from Kaligrilles. The link to the chart is no longer working; I made do with the preview picture. It’s on a scrap piece of 22 count fabric I had, and the colors are all DMC: S820 (v dk royal blue), E334 (jewel effects/blue topaz), and E3582 (precious metal effects/dark gold). I’ve decided I do not like satin floss; I’ve used a couple of different brands and have had nothing but trouble with it. I have a frame for this; it’s not in the frame because I cut the mounting board a little to large and it won’t fit.
