Finish it in - July Checkin

So it's time (or actually, it was time a week ago) for the monthly 'Finish it in' check in. Here's my current list:

1) The Mermaid
2) Reindeer
3) Wuffi the Dog
4) Whacky Witches in Stitches
5) March Fobs
6) Viajante

I've made progress on three of them (though not always as much as I'd liked) and finished none.

The Mermaid is progressing slowly, but surely. After slacking of in June I'm trying to do at least 500 stitches every week in July (not always easy when you're away the whole weekend, like the last one) and it's already showing:

I worked on Whacky Witches too, but didn't manage to finish the whole block - the letters and eye were a lot of fun, but also a lot of stitching! I made a decent start, though, and hope to be done before the start of our new Halloween SAL.

And I worked on Viajante too - I did one row a day all though June, and a few more this month, and made decent progress. It's not easy to see progress on this one, so I decided to track the remaining yarn: 221g at the moment.

So my list remains the same for now, and I hope to make some more decent progress this month!

Progress is progress and every stitch is one closer to the finish. Hopefully you'll find some time later in the year to catch up a bit more. :)

Even though your list is the same you've done some lovely work.

Leonore: The mermaid colors are so beautiful.
Whacky Halloween is adorable.
Viajante, the color is amazing.

Nice to see your updates, Leonore! That eyeball is very cool in your Halloween piece :) I'm sure you'll make even more progress in July! Enjoy your weekend...

Only like, 10 billion years behind commenting! You've moved way beyond what I've last seen on the mermaid. And Whacky Witches is a great stitch. It's unusual to see the letters outlined in more cross stitching instead of backstitching. Looks awesome!

Any progress is good progress. I like each of these stitcheries, especially the Halloween piece.

Great progress on Mermaid. I don't count stitches usually but filling in the background on my Discworld Mappe makes me realise just how many stitches 1000 is!
