Mystery X Part 2 update

Here's an update - still not done, but quite a radical improvement from the last one!

All the purple and metallic blue is done, and only two more of the silver things more to do. Otherwise, lots of the dark and light blue&green combinations, and so much honeydew (pale green fill) that I think Im going to go mad, lol. But I'll keep plugging along.

Anna - the cloudy mottled blue 32ct jobelan from silkweavers that you gave me looks like it is going to be perfect from my un-backgrounded periwinkle fae, and I've got her marked out on it so now I'm just waiting on the chart from Bob.

Otherwise, just the same old same old. I got the charts for JOB and CHG yesterday from Martina, and they are wonderful - I've printed out all of CHG, but JOB is giving me major headaches as far as trying to print is is concerned. I gave up last night, might have another go tonight or tomorrow sometime.

I want to get the chart and everything ready for next wednesday - Ive been wanting to get back into periwinkle, and she's the perfect thing to have for the QS SAL - see if I can get her done nice and quick this time. She's so pretty, can't wait to see her start to grow again.

I really like this new mystery. The colors are so pretty. What I find more insteresting is how different each stitcher approaches the pattern. I tend to start from top to bottom left to right and leave the metalic threads to last!

Wow, you've done so much! I'm lagging... Part 2 is so huge!

I definitely want to do a SAL with you, but Thursday is the Worst Day! It's the only day that I really can't do, because I go straight from work to uni to work again! Is there another day that's good for you?

Wow this is so exciting! The colours are fab. I really must think about doing one of these.

M10 is looking beautiful. I can't wait to see what Martina has you stitching next for this. Great progress. Can't wait to see your Periwinkle Fae.
