April's Daisy - A Finish

I started working on "April's Daisy" in late April before I left on my trip to the U.K.  I packed it up and took it with me, but honestly never worked on it while I was away.  I finally picked it up again and finished it off with three additional stitching sessions.

Design - "April's Daisy"
Designer - Cottage Garden Samplings
Fabric - 32 count Waterlily linen
Fibers - GAST, WDW & DMC - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 24 April 2013
Completed - 20 October 2013

I have the charts and fabric for May, June, July, August, and September.
The question is - which one will I stitch up next?

January's Snowdrops

Thank you for allowing me to join Parsley:) I'm Sally and I live in England. I fell in love with January's Snowdrops as soon I saw it and decided I wanted to collect the whole series. Up to now I have the first 6 and can't wait for my ONS to get the rest ( they're a bit slow but they get there in the end!).

So here's my finish of January's Snowdrops. It is stitched on 40 count Pearl  Grey Newcastle linen.

I'll be starting February's Primrose on Sunday.

April's Daisy - Further Progress

It's Monday once did that happen so quickly?
I do think that my idea of marking Sunday as "Series Sunday" is working out well.  Now that I have dedicated a day of the week, I'm working on "April's Daisy" on a regular basis and making good progress.  This week I finished all the lettering and all of the small motifs - the umbrella, the basket, the final chick.  I even was able to add a couple of leaves and begin to stitch one of the daises.  I think I can get this one finished before the end of the month.

April's Daisy - Progress Report

My "Series Sunday" idea seems to be what it takes to motivate me to work on my current Cottage Garden Samplings project.  I've finished the border of "April's Daisy", and have made good progress on the sentiment.
