Ok, at long last I have downloaded updates of my continuing saga of projects---
First in Blackbird Designs My Quaker House for the Quaker Inspired blog SAL:
I've made some single-line mistake on the top, but I have counted and counted and counted, left it a day, and counted and counted and counted some more, and I cannot find anything off. So, in a fine personal tradition, I'm going to just add a spare stitch to each side of the arch and call it a "customization." :)
I also did a very little bit on Midsummer Night Designs Quaker Meetinghouse:
And finally I have finished the halves of a biscornu for the Wiehenburg yahoo group exchange. It's done in DMC and powwow beads :) Here's the front:
Since it's half-way through the month I feel a progress check is in order. May's goals were:
1. Finish 2 needlepoints -- any two needlepoints, just finish the dang things! ------ haven't even unearthed one!
2. Find (and start) Sweetheart Tree's fruit of the Vine hearts ----- haven't found them yet
3. progress on Vierlanden... let's aim for page 10 done, shall we! ----- a teensy bit of progress
4. Finish the Quaker SAL -- Blackbird Designs My Quaker House ------ a lot of progress made!!!
5. Do the finishing on all the ornies I have done to date. ------ lol Does moving them from pile to pile count?6. Complete the Weihenburg Group Biscornu Exchange piece and mail it EARLY!
7. Stitch 3 new ornies ----- lol, yeah, right
8. Finish the final (?) CSRR Christmas RR. ----- nope, not yet
9. Read 2 books --- I've finished Pratcehtt's Going Postal and Wolfe's The Black Mountain
10. Clear my hovel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -------- ROTFLOL
11. Start a chapter. ---- any minute now
Recently finished: Rex Stout's The Black Mountain -- fun as usual, but it must be a fluke that the last 3 Wolfes I've read have all had him leaving the house. Also, I must say I'm a little flummoxed by he fact that I can watch every crime show on television and happily enjoyed the new Casino Royale, but the tame torture scene in Black Mountain was thoroughly disconcerting. Possibly I was set off my game by the image of Wolfe in shabby clothing hiking through the mountains of Montenegro.
Also recently finished: Terry Pratchett's Going Postal -- I do love Pratchett and this was no exception --- I mean one minute you're hanged and the next your made head of the post office? lol
Currently reading: Pratchett's The Truth
Still wishing I could find: Zelazny's This Immortal
Damn I lost another one: Butcher's Storm Front
