catching up...and ort report

Let's start with the ort report... here is my jar for this month.  Lots in there but I really didn't stitch as much as I would have liked. Still I managed to get lots done...
 
I don't have any pictures of Humbolt Coast to show, as I haven't had time to work on it on Sundays lately... the same thing for today... I haven't had a chance yet to sit down and stitch...
 
However I have been working on other things... I pulled out my cardinal sampler and managed to get a nice chunk done on it....
 
 
I then pulled out the Home Sweet Home piece by Les Grilles de Maryse, and managed to finish off the 3 block as well as more of the border... 


Please excuse the picture, blogger would only upload it sideways, no matter how many times I tried... which is strange as it is right side up on my computer...

I also started a new project... it's the historical map of Hungary done in folk motifs, and it will be a birthday gift for my husband at the end of April.


It is from a Hungarian cross stitch magazine - Keresztszemes magazine.  It is originally made into a clock, but I'm just making it into a picture that will eventually be framed.

And last but  not least... I am learning to crochet...Here is my second attempt, the first you may have seen on facebook... definitely not as nice as this one, though there is plenty of room for improvement still!
 


That's it for me... till next time happy stitching!
