Happy Dances AND August WIPocalypse!

I've had a few more stitching finishes over the last few days, and its time to share!

Such a hard life!
 
The first one was on Sunday while I was relaxing and stitching with Rebbecca at her family's cottage.  Its a nice meeting spot for us, as its half way from my place and half way from hers.  Convenient, meeting in the middle!
 Caleb had to show off the frog he managed to catch

 French Country Hearts II - Scandinavian Heart
c2011 JBW Designs
Stitched on 28ct Navy Lugana with DMC B5200

My second finish happened late last night, this was another one of my Crazy January starts (remember those 15 projects I started?  After last night's finish I'm down to 5 WIPs from all of those starts!!!!  Not bad for the start of the 7th month of the year!

French Country - Scardey Cats
c2010 JBW Designs
Stitched on 32ct Jungle Boogie Opalescent Lugana from Silkweavers

 This picture shows the sparklies much better!

Its that time again, time for a WIPocalypse update!  I'm sure I just did one of these didn't I?  So besides the two above Happy Dances since the beginning of July I also finished several more JBW ornaments and Spring Mandala




I've started the Summer Mandala, and almost got 1/4 of the outlining finished... well it least it will be by bedtime tonight.



Of course I keep plugging away at the Accolade.

Wow! Dani, lovely finishes. I, too, like Scaredy Cats, I am really into French Country designs at the moment but I haven't seen that one before. So cute!

The cottage looks like a wonderful stitching retreat.

Great projects. What will you do with the mandelas? Do they get framed all together, or each one on it's own.
