Mostly, I worked on the peacock from Just Cross Stitch April 2015. Looking at the picture, I feel like I can see the end; looking at the pattern, there’s still a long way to go. The branch on the right is about ten stitches above the bottom, but the tail fills in the width of the piece. I still should finish it by late October, unless I get severely distracted.

The only thing I worked on this month was the peacock from the April 2015 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine. It’s for my sister; hopefully I’ll finish it in time for her birthday in October. I think I’m approaching finishing the top half, but the lower half has considerably more stitching in it.

The only cross-stitch project I worked on this month was the peacock for my sister from the April 2015 issue of Just Cross Stitch. I ought to have it finished in time for her birthday in October:

This is the Mockingjay pin (Hunger Games) from Happy Cupcake Creations. It is for my nephew; I was looking for something else entirely, and he saw this and liked it. It took much longer than I thought it would (a couple of weeks instead of a few days), but it’s finally finished. It’s on 14 count plastic canvas.

I started two projects and worked on two WIPs this month. I worked a little on Alphonse Mucha’s Moon from Art of Stitching:

I think the only WIP I touched this month was Alphonse Mucha’s Moon from miniature set 11 from Art of Stitching. I did finish the first page and the first row of 10×10 squares on the second and third pages. I went ahead and did page three because it’s only ten stitches wide and three of those are overlap from page two:

This is from Cross Stitch Art Nouveau by Barbara Hammet; it is a motif inspired by Charles Annesley Voysey. There was a picture of this along with the chart; I did not notice until it was too late that the picture and the chart were different in the area between the flowers that touch at the top. I’m not sure whether the pictured version looks better, though.
