WIPocalypse - 27.03.13

I've not had much time to stitch this month as we've been having a new kitchen fitted and with all the dust around I didn't really want to get it on my stitching.

I did manage to finish the next part of the perpetual calendar - it is the number 1.  The blue swirls were charted and then I followed the swirls with my variegated green threads to create patterns as well.  I completed this one on 28.02.13.

I've also managed to get back into stiching my Chatelaine - the anniversary sampler Sleeping Beauty's Castle.  I absolutely adore stitching with the silks they seem to fly through the fabric beautifully.  So here's the latest picture.  I've also updated my Chatelaine page with the in between pictures.

I have also been doing some knitting and have finished a scarf for my sister.  I've also started knitting a patchwork blanket.  Will try and take some photos for my next post.

I have started a new cross stitch project as well.  It is Dragon Dance by Jocarra charted by Sarah Paine.

I'm stitching it on 18 count black aida so I don't have to stitch all the black.  It's hard going stitching on black and I've not made enough progress yet to share a picture.  

Keep stitching and smiling!
