June 7, 2008

Part 4 of BoInk is finished, and I'm through stitching on it until the next part is released. A lot of the SAL members have stitched the whole border, but since I have trouble counting past five (and somedays just counting to two seems to be a problem), I'm stitching the border after I stitch the design.

I finished the top of my biscornu yesterday. I think that might have been one of my goals for March. And today I started on the bottom. For the bottom I'm just doing one of the tiny little squares in each corner. Hopefully I'll finish that tomorrow because I want to start this:

This arrived in the mail today. I can't believe I behaved myself and worked on the bottom of the biscornu instead of starting this. Once I get the first row put in I'll be using this as my commercial stitching while I watch So You Think You Can Dance. The commercials are so numerous and long that it wouldn't surprise me if I finish it while only stitching on it during the commercials.
Happy stitching everyone!

It's looking good:) I really like the colours in this piece.

Looking forward to seeing your biscornu made up:) They are very addictive!

Boy this is a very intricate border, you are doing a lovely job on it.
The Biscornu looks nice as well.
The pattern for my RR is in a magazine. I'll get the name for you as I've already past it on. It won't be a problem it's in my Thursday group!
Thanks for looking in. I look forward to seeing more border on your piece.

Hi Twana.
I found the name of the magazine for that RR we are doing with the farm animals and barn.
It is in
Cross stitch Collection July "2007"
Hope you can find it.
Take care.

Hi Twana. Your BoInk is coming along beautifully. I'm still way back on part 1 and really need to get stitching on it again. I love the cat design you're going to stitch. I'm also a DWTS fan and watch every episode while stitching during the commercials. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment for me.

nice job Twana! I will be stitching with you in the Peppermint Twist SAL, and you will note you are not the only one who will do the border as she goes :) I started the first wee section of border, and found it tedious enough that I will stitch the innerds until I am ready to count in smaller digits and do some more ;) Happy Stitching :) Laura
