Oh hai! We’re only a few days into March so I’ll chalk this one up as on time!
So, February’s plans (probably out of order bc I can’t be bothered to go check…)
-Finish OLAS. Done! In my skin of my teeth (I sewed the second sleeve back on on Feb 29th). I’m really pleased with this thing, even if it isn’t the easiest thing to wear (I have to keep adjusting the shawl collar).
-Do half of cross stitching z. Umm, I kinda blew this one out of the water!
I finished all of z!!!!!! All that’s left now is names, date and beads. And then find a framer. There are some options when I googled so I’ll have a more serious search and see what’s what.
-Pacman ghosts. Blah. I knew this one would be a struggle, and I’m pleased with how far I got. I cut out the shapes, glued them, and I’ve stitched around one. If I were to do this again I wouldn’t glue, but rather pin and stuff when I finished most of the sewing. Turns out sewing through glue is really hard (and now I have to work out how to attach eyes on…). But hey, live and learn. This will (theoretically) be getting it’s own blog post at some point.
-Organise my craft gifts this year. Yes! They’re now written down in my phone. Socks for the mother, maybe a hat for the dad, a couple of secrets for the people I know read this blog 😉 I’m trying to keep it relatively low key!
So, March goals!
-Finish the dragon socks. This should be easy, I’m about halfway up the leg (toe up) on the second sock.
-4 stage two half hexies. This is wildly underestimating things, I’ve done 2 this month already! Bonus ones would be wonderful!
-Finish sewing the ghosts and make eyes. Bonus points if I attach the eyes somehow, but I’m gonna try to not sweat it…
