Double SAL checkin time! We have IHSW just behind us, which I actually spent a nice amount of time stitching on, and it's also time for this month's WIPocalypse-checkin. It's still going to be a rather short post, since I'm trying to focus on stuff, and focusing means more progress, but less pictures - oh well.
The June question for WIPocalyse was Do you find yourself more productive with stitching in summer or winter?. I'm pretty sure the same question has already been asked last year, but without looking at my answer from back then I can now say that it's definitly winter these past few years. I'm not actually a summer-loving person, so I really like to lay around lazyly when it's hot - great conditions for stitching, right? Well, I'd still love to do that, but for the last two years or so I've been finding myself way to busy during the summertime, so winter is the better time for stitching now.
Now for progress, I stitched exclusivly on the Grandchildren project, and finished the lower right corner - a lovely little birdy with his nest - so I'm more than halfway done with the cross stitch now. I also started charting the customized parts, so I can hopefully get right to stitching those once I reach the area.
I also had a bit of knitting time last week during lectures, so I got a fair bit of the watermelon socks done. I'm just about the start working the heel now, so almost halfway done on the second sock. My goal is to have those done by July 29th, Sysstem Admin Appreciation Day, as the guy I'm making these for happens to be out sys admin at work - I think that goal is quite achievable :)
