MTM Part 6 is in the books

It's a wrap! I managed to finish Part 6 of Medieval Town Mandala today. Now, I am off to stitch on something different - something of my own choosing - Woo Hoo!
And... I reached into my project bag, and out came the much neglected but highly loved Mermaids of the Deep Blue! I pretty much just got to work on the upper mermaid's arms, but this was still so much fun! Darn! Now it is bedtime, and away they go again :-(

I know a couple of people have asked me to post my update pic of Bordeaux Mystery Sampler. I promise to do that tomorrow night - I want to finish the over one stitching band at work tomorrow first :-)

A pretty good points day for Ryan Newman today, by the way :-) I know many of you are NASCAR fans, and a good many of you know I adore Ryan :-) Anyhow... he finished 9th and made a large jump up to 12th in points... not without bouncing and banging around - but everyone did that today, anyhow!! LOL

Stitched on today: Medieval Town Mandala (yay, Part 6 is finally complete!) and Mermaids of the Deep Blue

Yay! Good for you! I think those houses must be like my mountains on Alpine. Glorious when done but a lot to stitch each month - especially when you're itching to do other things too! :)

Congratulations on finishing part 6. It looks fanstastic :)
I saw you bought the Waiting for Neptune kit a couple of entries ago, which one are you going to stitch, this one, the HAED one, or both?!! You've inspired me to hunt out those Fleur de lis Linda Ravenscroft fairy kits, I've already got one, now I want them all!

Awesome on MTM!!!

Question about the Mermaids. I'm working on them right now too :) I'm wondering if you're filling in the arms with 1/4 stitches? or just stitching as the pattern is?

Mel in Dubai said...

Way to go, Carol! It looks fabulous :) Enjoy stitching on those mermaids!

Heather said...

MTM congratulations Carol. Mermaids is looking amazing. Well done to Ryan on NASCAR, it's on too late over here to watch and I never end up watching things if I record them.
Can't wait to see what you will stitch on tonight.
