Just one July progress

Hello Friends,
Just a quick update to show you first week progress on Just one July SAL hosted by Justine.I have selected to stitch my flower of the month project for this SAL.This series is a freebie from Ellen Maurer-Stroh and each flower block is of size 63*63.
Its a long weekend here in Kuwait and yesterday I was able to stitch for almost 4 hours.Here is a picture of the September flower -Aster,before I started stitching it this month.
And here is a picture of what it looks like today
I have decided to stitch the border around the flowers as I go rather than doing it all in the end.I'm now working on June flower "Wild Rose" border.I forgot to print the pattern for next flower in the series ,so I would have to stick with border anyway 😄
Today we had guests for dinner and I ended up cooking too much food.With two more days to the weekend and food cooked for next 2 meals ,I should be able to make some significant stitching progress .

  1. Great progress Mini. The flower looks beautiful. I have started to do two flowers(one below the other) and planning to frame it. Have a happy weekend.

  4. Very pretty aster. I think doing borders as you go is definitely a good plan. Good luck with the rest of the month.

  5. Awesome progress!! It is so pretty! I too would do the borders as I went. If I left them until the end there is a good chance they wouldn't get done :)

  6. Fantastic progress! I would also do the borders as I went, I don't enjoy border stitching at all.

  7. Excellent progress and very pretty. I would also do borders as I go - it can get really boring.

  11. Nothing better than some hours of uninterrupted stitching. And you used them wisely, Mini. Your progress on the Aster block is just gorgeous. A great project for the Just One July SAL.

  12. Lovely to see this growing~ :D I think I'd do the borders as I went (if I were going to do them), too. That would be a lot of brown in the end otherwise!
