Fox Stitch-a-Long, part 6

Hi everyone -- it's that time again! Hard to believe it's been three weeks -- I think time speeds up in the summer. Just a quick note this time because we're off to a wedding.

Last time I had finished the leaves and done a few stitches of the dark navy background. And now?


So close!!!


I had really, really hoped to be doing a happy dance this check-in ... but I am well on my way.

Just one large-ish area, and the little spaces between the leaves and flowers. So close!!!



I predict that one or two of my stitch-a-long buddies have also almost completed their projects. It's been really fun to see what they're working on and how much they are accomplishing! Check out their blogs here:

Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, LucyAnn, Kate, Jess, Sue, Constanze, Debbierose, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Helen, Steph, Linda,  Mary Margaret, Heidi, Jackie, Hayley, Tony, Megan and Timothy.

Our next check-in is in three more weeks!

  5. Doesn't that look great! I guess I hadn't realized (or had forgotten) that there would be flowers in this. I love it. Have you decided what's next?

    1. Thank you Sue! I had rolled up the flower part to make it easier to stitch the leaves, but now I'm enjoying seeing it all at once. One of our fellow stitchers shifted to a "lighter summer project" which seems like a very good idea to me. So once I wrap up Mr. Fox -- AND make up the pillows, lest he become a UFO in my basement! -- I'll shift to one of two cross stitch patterns I have been eyeing for my Mum.

    1. High praise coming from you! I'm having a little anxiety about making up the pillows as I want to do something special put not sure what! But I'll get the stitching and blocking done first and worry about that later.
