I've been working on my mystery X wip...and the beading keeps going and going and going...
See? This has the beading a little more than half done...
I stitched the beads in the outside borders all in the same direction, but even when I sacrificed four beads on each side it still buckles, so I'm thinking about unstitching them and restitching them.
I also did some more work on Japanese Octagon Box for my SAL with Tash and got some more border and some more grass done - but the colours looked strange, and I went on the board only to discover that there are two colour keys and I was using the wrong one - didnt have the first one - and the group has been deleted! Ack. I think I will be begging Martina soon... Anyway I went from there to working on the border a little bit, but I didn't get as much done this week as I would have liked.
Tranquility Mystery has the first part done now too:
I've started the next page, but no photos of that yet - I want to try and get it finished on time this time!
From the Ashes is on the frame this weekend coming too, for the Challenge SAL - it will be good to get into it again.
Oh and I got the fabric for my restart of Froggy Frog World too - 32ct Carol's Meadow Jobelan by Silkweavers. Should be fun, it's gorgeous fabric.
And I got a birthday present too...from Peta (Troy's mum) who is an excellent future MIL :) she has a beautiful needlecase that she made and I've been envious of it since I first saw it, all beaded crazy patchwork with pockets.
Imagine my surprise to open an early birthday present that was this:
