Back to stitching....

I'm back to stitching this week after a lovely day w/my Dad on Sunday! Last night I settled in to watch the Carolina Hurricanes (thanks to the NJ Devils for giving Brodeur the deserved night off so we could win!), and finished off the last ring on Ink Circles' design from the March JCS...Growth Rings! I ended up using 4 and 2/3 silk skeins of the main color, with one+ skein left over to add to the stash. Took the picture and right away started on the secondary color (still had part of the game to watch after all!), which is for the leafy sections inside the rings and things. I am enjoying this design thoroughly, and hope to finish it this month at the rate I'm going! I also need to squeeze in a biscornu before the end of the month for the Basket of Biscornu blog I am taking part in...better be a quick one! The rest of the monthly plan is going to be postponed, but I'm having fun with Rings, so I don't care.....and besides, there will shortly be a new mystery SAL (Papillon) starting and I need to clear a spot in the rotation, right?





















ETA: Errata for Growth Rings (I just sent her a couple more so check back!)
