August Stitching Gaols, Oranment HD and Lots of 310!!

Goodness, my new goals and my review of last month's goals is over a week past due!  Where has the time gone?  At this rate my summer holidays will be over before I know it!!!

Here are July's Stitching Goals

July Goals

I also finished French Country Scardey Cats which wasn't on the stitching agenda.

On Friday I stared my ornament for this month, and I took the time on Sunday to finish it off!

 All Seasons on one piece of 40ct

 Summer Mandala

 Fall Mandala

In the last week I have been stitching with almost nothing but 310!  Oh my goodness I was starting to get sick of it.  I've taken this week to finish putting in all the black on both the Summer AND Fall Mandalas.  Tonight I can start putting in colour on the Summer Mandala.

The mandelas remind me of coloring in a coloring book.

Can't wait to see autumn!

The Mandelas are looking good, just black is actually quite effective too.

They look fantastic. That is a long time to stitch with just black - but it is striking.

The mandalas do look good like this! But even better with the colour.

Hi Dani,
Those mandalas are very pretty indeed! I can imagine you had a "310 overkill" :-)
Do you already know how you'll be finishing them? Framing or something else?
