June Progress on 2015/2016 Challenge Pieces

Hello all!

Time for another month-end round up on the progress I've made on my Challenge WIPs. My plan for June was to finish one piece and work on three more. And, true to form, I succeeded yet again!

I finished Gryffindor (posted previously) and worked on:

Cream by Toni Goffe for Heritage Crafts
started 9th February 2015; last stitched on May 2017
continued the background and stitched some of the spilled cream

Red Foxes from the Young-uns Collection by Gloria and Pat
started 14th February 2015; last stitched on May 2017
actually started the first of the red foxes and really did not want to put this one down!

The Lock from the Silhouettes range by Heritage Crafts
started 17th February 2015; not stitched on since then
filled in some of the sky at the top and the lock on the right

So overall another month of keeping to my plans and making good progress.

July plans are to finish Cream and work on three more (again). I really do sound like a broken record but why alter plans that are giving me the monthly finishes and progress I crave?

Take care,
Rachel x


  1. Very cute stitching! I have the Young 'Uns pattern book. I'd love to stitch them all up one day and create a quilt out of them. Oh, if only there were more hours in the day. You've made some nice progress on your stitching. --Andrea

  2. Another reason not to alter your plans--they're working. You always stitch such nice projects.

  3. Love your stitching as always Rachel! I can't wait to see more of the Red Foxes so I hope that will be one of your "three more" and good luck with Cream!

  4. Lovely stitching !! Cream is so cute:)

  5. You made good progress on all of them.

    I agree, If it's not broken, don't fix it. Stick to the plan.

  6. Great work on all your WIPs. It's so nice to find a rotation that works for you.
