Celtic Summer Update

I have put a lot of hours into over the last few days. If I can keep this up, then I can see a finish very soon!

Here is a before picture:



And this is what it looks like now:


As you can see, I have got a lot of stitches in.


Here is a close up of the area I am working on:


I have also put in 400 stitches on my HAED Story Keep 'Spirit'.
I will post an update on it very soon.

I am also putting a few stitches into my 'Arise on the Wings', every day, for Evalina's Oldest UFO Challenge, which I will update on the last day of each month as instructed by the challenge.

Goals of 2012?
I have decided not to do any as I never stick to them!!!!
But what I would like to stick to is to complete two BAP's before I start another large project. Celtic Summer and my big Magician would be the obvious two seeing they are both the most completed BAP's I have.
I still have not finished my Halloween Fairy, so that would be nice to complete as well.
It would be nice to rotate both my HAED's, Spirit and The Green man, regularly!! I think that is more likely to happen when Celtic Summer and the Magician is finished.
My only ultimate goal would be to be able to stitch on a regular basis!!!!

  5. You are doing awesome. Keep going.
    I want to do all those ladies.

    I am with you. Not sure I will make a plan for this year... have too many things started and need to get busy finishing them. Although, I do have 2 Mirabilias kitted and dying to be started.... oh the agony!

    Now I have a new craft room I will have to get busy as I have 3 walls to now cover. LMAO
