Got the veins of one of the leaves done (I think there's 4 main leaves in the circle). I've been doing these Mill Hill kits a lot during the week, because they are easy to grab and take to work with me, which some days is the only stitching time I have (on my lunch break). But I only have 1 left in my "have to stitch soon" pile now, so I need to figure out some other quick projects to take with me for the rest of the week.
I also made quite a bit of progress on Perfume Bottle. It's actually starting to look a little like a bottle now. You can start to see a bit of the stripes forming.
I always work with projects with large blocks of color like this that they won't look "blended" enough in the finished project, but I think this one might turn out okay. Sorry for the not-so-great pictures on both of these, it was storming when I took them and the lighting was less than stellar.
I'm going to have to sit down this weekend and go through the remaining projects I have kitted up and ready to go. Because of a few projects that have interjected themselves into my original list, I have more projects in my "to start" box than I have days left in January. But I can't really spill into February starting things every day too much because I have several things due in March that I will need to use February to work on. Is it silly to just do like an extra week of starts into February?
