So I was hoping to have another finish for month 2 of Year of the Acronym but I came very close. This is a challenge to finish up works in progress and you can read about it and check out others work here.
This month I continued the design Baby Monkey Sampler, design by Linda Gillum for Kooler Design Studio kit by Janlynn.
Originally I had started it on the 14 count AIDA fabric included and I thought I had a picture but I was wrong. Anyways after stitching a bit I realized I made the ultimate blunder and started stitching on the fabric in the wrong direction so I wouldn't have enough to finish the design!
Luckily enough though I had just received some beautiful fabric I purchased from Stitchnmomma so I then re-started this design on this beautiful bright yellow 18 count fabric. It fits better with the jungle monkey theme of the little boy I am making this for anyways! Since the little one is now 3 years old I think this original project is at least that old. I had made the matching quilt and bib set and this should finish out the Monkey designs.
Here is the first progress pic on February 5th..
Then on February 14th...
Then a bit more by February 22nd...
And here is my progress up to today!
I am very close to adding the birth details but this month I was busy with other projects. I finally finished some important Christmas presents, I just had a special house guest and of course I was very busy taking care of my little girl who just had her first birthday! I'm not sure what project I will choose when this is done or if I will get any work done on it this month since I am leaving on vacation soon to the US.
Until the next time...Happy Crafting!
