WIP updates

I finally took pictures! First up, my crocheted cell phone case. I'm over halfway done with it already. I'm using a bigger yarn than called for, so I only need half as many rows, and I won't have to make the side inserts, I'll just whip-stitch the sides together when I get to that point. It's done with DMC Senso yarn, the heather purple. I'm thinking I'll make me another one too out of more springy colors, a variegated of some sort probably.

Next, HAED's "A Favour". I'm about 2200 stitches in. Nearly all of the progress from the last picture to this one was done in 2 days. I so proud of myself!

And this one is my best friend's BD present. I accidentally cropped off some of the side when I took it, but you get the picture, lol. It's a Belle portrait, Beauty and the Beast is her favorite movie. It's a Janlynn kit that came with aida. I chucked the aida and am stitching it on SMF's "Abracadabra" 28ct Cashel. She'll look much better once I finish the backstitching in her hair and on her face. That pink down at the bottom goes all the way around and up and forms a heart around her. And Hobby Lobby has frames on sale this week!! Talk about meant to be.

I love the mobile phone case! How I wish my progress for this month was anywhere near as much as you!

hey nice texture on the mobile phone case! And in purple (our favourite colour, too!)

On the tatting bit, Rachel, you just leave a space in between your double stitches as you go, and push the stitch together... the loopy thing automatically pops up ... it's easy and v. portable!
