Themealicious 2012 Altius August

Hello everyone, 
Sorry for belated post but I was so worn out from our trip to Turkey (arrived in Amman on the 1st of Sept).

So here is my report:

done the top right after August IHSW

continue the bottom right, love the colours already even when its only 1/3 finished!

middle top took longer to stitch, need to concentrate because of the colours and many  twirly spaces

finally done the moon in the middle. can you see the siluet of the woman, a hand holding a cup and the smoke?
I stopped stitching about one week before August ended because it was our last week in Turkey so I wanted to focus on last minutes shopping, packing and visiting relatives.

Overall I love stitching Silvermoon Tea alot, the chart is great and the colours are amazing. I still need to get used to stitching on linen, I think an experienced stitcher could have done it better than me but I am still happy with the result considering this is my first attempt.

In the beginning of the month I set up some goals:
1. Stitching on linen: Done. Therefore GOLD medal for me
2. Stitching full design on fabric: Did it but couldn't finish the whole design. Therefore SILVER medal for me.
3. Stitching the beads: Intended to but couldn't do it because I haven't finished the stitching. Therefore BRONZE medal for me.

Here I want to show off my medals to you :)

And September theme is:
September Smalls
We all love gadgets, and none better than the teensy tools and holders we make ourselves. Let's stitch some smalls--needlebooks, fobs, biscornus, scissors keeps, pincushions--or knit some teensy things--amigurumi, jewelry, sachets....

I think I will make biscornu and if I still have time I want to make needlebooks and pincushion too :) See you next time! I hope you all enjoy your Altius August (I know you do!) but if you haven't joined at all, lets join us and lets have fun together!

***** many thanks, terima kasih, sağol, شُكْرًا
