Some more stitched portraits

6th Month Review

We are at the half way point through the year.  Where did the time go? And looking at the list I made myself back in January I haven't done too much.

 I have finished a charity quilt, but I forgot to add that to the original list.

I have made some progress on the Stitching Faces but am up to learning how to use paints and pencils on fabric and that is taking some time.

The rest of the list is all part done, nothing completed.  I know I have been ill but I'm not very happy with myself at the moment. 

When I finish the knitted shawl, which wasn't on the list, I am going back to those animals.  Julie Edwards has a new set of pattern, all dogs.

They are just so adorable I don't know where to start.

I bought my pattern from her Ravelry site and it only cost about $10 Australian for more than 10 different dogs and 4 Sweaters plus a pair of shorts.  It was a 40 page print out, a small book!!

I have completed 6 of the knitted toys out of the 12 I set myself to do, the dogs should finish off that lot.  For the rest, I just have to knuckle under and get to it.

It is hard to believe the time has passed so quickly, isn't it!
