A small finish and goals

Things at work were super slow last week, so I decided to take a little piece to keep me entertained :) When I was searching for a little project I got the latest newsletter from Barbara Ana Designs and attached to it was biscornu freebie from a new holiday biscornu series she's about to release. It was a quick finish and it now in my basket of small with my Buzzing Around biscornu. Now I have to find another small project to take to work :)

Las cosas en el trabajo estan super lentas, asi que la semana pasada decidi llevar un proyecto pequeño para poder avanzar en mis ratos libres. Cuando estaba buscando que proyecto llevar, me llego el ultimo "newsletter" de la diseñadora Barbara Ana y justo a este vino un grafico gratis de un biscornu (este forma parte de una nueva series de biscornus que esta por publicar). Fue un proyecto rapidito y que ahora esta junto otro biscornu de la misma diseñadora que termine el mes pasado, "Buzzing Around Biscornu". Ahora a buscar un nuevo proyecto para llevar al trabajo :)

Stitched on 28ct Unknown Lugana with DMC thread

I think I did pretty good on my goals for June:

2. Stitch "Believe" (L*K Living with Charm series) ~ Yes!!
3. Stitch at least 15 hours on The Guardian ~ Yes!!!
4. Stitch part 3 of Back on the Road Again ~ Finished part 4 instead of part 3 :P
5. Stitch and finish a Tin Topper for the Monthly Finishing Challenge blog ~ nop!
I also stitched a piece for an upcoming exchange and finished a biscornu :)

Carla, that is just an adorable biscornu! I collect ladybugs and have looked everywhere for the newsletter that you said you got the freebie from. Could you point me in the right direction?? I MUST have this one to add to my collection!

Thanks for your help.

Your biscornu turned out lovely, well done. You did really well with your goals for June, good luck for July's goals.

Hi Carla,

Your ladybug biscornu is beautiful.
What a wonderful design. So bright
and colourful! And the little lady
bug button is a perfect finish to
the piece. So cute!

I wouldn't feel too bad about not
getting The Guardian done in time for Father's Day. It looks like it's very detailed, and a lot of work.

I think you're make fantastic
progress on it, it's looking
great, and when it's done your
Dad's going to flip over it.
