How Does Your Garden Grow? Mystery- progress update

One more section left and I'm done! Again, ignore the kool-aid stain on the side. I'm hoping to clean it as soon as I finish part 12. If it doesn't come clean, I'll frame/finish it so that it doesn't show. It's no worse than the time my cat threw up on a different project. Oxyclean got that stain off so I'm hoping that it will work this time too. I'm still waiting for some of the supplies to get here for the Castles In The Air Mystery but I'm not allowing myself to start that one until this project is finished anyway. Here's hoping that a "finished" photo will soon appear here!

Some Creatures in My Yard

This is a Monarch Caterpiller munching away on some Butterfly Weed.

Here is one in it's chrysalis. As you can see, it's almost ready to emerge. I missed it when he/she hatched so no adult butterfly photos. :(

My Updates

Here is BoInk. I tried to catch up as much as I could since I didn't work on it at all the week before. I usually don't stitch things with celtic themes as they just haven't appealed to me but I am really enjoying this project.

Finished Bug Collector

Here is Bug Collector designed by Jeannette Douglas Designs. I went ahead and finished it because, well, I just couldn't resist any longer. It was actually the only thing I felt like working on and the next day, I had an allergy/sinus attack. I have since tried working on other projects but they will all have to be re-done. I quickly decided to take a break until I'm feeling better. Therefore, no BoInk updates this time. It seems the Easter Bunny has brought me a basket of tissues and cough drops this year.

Weekend Update

Here's my butterfly band on my Bug Collector. This is turning out so cute! I kitted up my next project that will take the place of this one. It's a band sampler as well.

And of course, here's BoInk. I could have done a little bit more but decided that I had stitched enough for tonight. I'm too tired and the black and red lines were starting to make my eyes hurt. I'm hoping to finish the first block next weekend.
