I had a major frog attack while stitching part 7 of Zentangle. Most of the mistakes are fixed, but there are still some minor mistakes, some stitches stitched wrong by one or two threads. It is hard to notice that they are in the wrong place, so I won't be fixing them. The simpler the pattern the more mistakes I seem to make. Hopefully next part will be better. I am happy to finish this part before the next part comes out.

After three years, White Nights in Saint Petersburg is completed!!!! I started this design when the class started back in 2007. I am really glad that I finally completed my first Chatelaine, hopefully the first of many others. The fabric is 32ct linen Shimmering Twilight Blue by Sugar Maple Fabrics. I used the kit from ECC except I substituted the NPI for DMC.

I am still beading, nothing new there as I must be the slowest stitcher ever to pick a needle. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will be happy dancing. Yesterday night, while I was beading the bottom right of the design, I noticed how much the bicones in the border are sparkling and catching light so I took a picture in artificial light without the flash.

I have almost finished beading the top half of the design. It was not a great day to take a decent picture as it rained all day. The scanner is also not co-operating as the scans are coming out with all the colours washed out. For now, I can only post pictures of the finished two squares which have different specialty stitches in them. I like how they look with the beads attached.
The square with the algerian eyelets.
This one with rhodes stitches.

My stitching goals for this month are going to be:
1. Finish Saint Petersburg White Nights.
2. Complete Part 4 of Persian Iris Garden except the jessicas and the iris flowers.
3. Stitch part 7 of Zentangle.
4. Complete page 5 of Mouth of Flower and start page 6.
5. Rinse the threads for part 5 of PIG.
6. Rinse the threads for part 1 of Holland Springtime Mandala.
Maybe a little too ambitious but I can always try.
