It's been a while....

Seems that it's been a while since I posted - didn't realise how long until I just looked. 

I've started a Flosstube with my daughter since I stopped updating my blog. We talk about my cross stitch and her diamond painting! You can find us at jobee's journal

In June, I started doing the 24 hour monthly challenges put out by Jen Lee (instagram handle quirksandstitches). There have been a couple of 24 hour stitching events and in June, Jen added an acrostic challenge for the month. The idea was to do something that related to the letters in TWENTY FOUR, for a certain amount of time or stitches. I liked the idea of tracking time rather than stitches - most of the other challenges have you count stitches which I just don't do! I chose to do 240 minutes on each project.

I talked about these projects on our Flosstube, but I've worked on most of them since I did the 240 minutes on each of them. They are also documented on my instagram page - jobee's journal but aren't in order.

T - The Blue Mountains (semco kit) Stitched 2 over 1 on 18 count Aida

W - Wreath of Wildflowers Stitched 1 over 1 on 22 count Hardanger fabric with the called for DMC

E - Even Superheroes ( NikkiPattern on Etsy Stitched 2 over 1 on 14 count Aida with the called for DMC threads

N - Noel (started and finished in the 240 minutes) Stitched 1 over 1 on 22 count Hardanger fabric in the called for DMC

T - The Pioneer ( Country Threads Stitched 2 over 1 on 16 count Aida

Y - Wattle (because it's Yellow!) The bookmark was partially done when I bought it from an op shop. I did the remainder of the wattle blossoms then did the rest of the time on the wattle in Wreath of Wildflowers.

F - Flanders Fields (Country Threads kit)

O - Noel by Gazette94 (One Colour) Stitched 1 over 2 on 40 count linen/evenweave (bought it at an op shop so not exactly sure)

U - more on Even Superheroes including the U! My original plan was to stitch on a Rainbow Fish kit I got from a magazine - mucked it up so will have to start it over.

R - Babushka (Russian Doll) I got this as a birthday present a few years ago so decided to start it on my birthday this year! 

If you've made it this far - thanks for reading! I'm hoping I can keep this more updated especially as I'm doing these challenges.
