October TUSAL

I forgot to post my TUSAL jar yesterday.

The green is from where I mixed up 702 and 704 while stitching Ohm. While it's impossible to tell because of the design style I still felt odd about leaving the mistake in, so I went ahead and frogged it.

Continuing Ohm

I got a bit more done on Ohm. And I'm still enjoying it, so more Ohm pictures for the foreseeable future. yay?

I took at all the smalls I need to finish today. There are so many of them and it was very disheartening. I have no clue how you frequent finishers do this! There's measuring, cutting, lacing, assembling and adding all kinds of ribbons/ricrac/buttons/pompoms. I get so overwhelmed just thinking about it and go back to stitching on my WIPs because it's so much less thinking and decision-making involved. What are your secrets? Tell me and save me from this growing pile of smalls-that-need-to-be-finish-finished.

More Ohm

I made visible progress on Ohm. I'm debating just sticking with this until I finish it. It's just so much fun to work on.

This is what it looked like when I picked it back up:

Washed Out

I started October's biscornu last month and was about an hour in when I realized that it was October and I wasn't stitching a Halloween biscornu. But then I realized that I don't have any Halloween themed patterns suitable and continued on. This is Papillon Creations' The Magic Carpet (it's available under "Free Charts" on the right). It was when I went back to get a link that I realized that the pattern is from Scheherazade, which I finished two years ago!

I'm using Dinky Dyes Aquamarine, Desert Sand, Cloudy Sky and DMC white. Unfortunately it's not just the flash washing the colours out. The colours do look that washed out in person. On the other hand, I'm already done one side!

September SFS

September was spending free. Mostly because the month flew by and it doesn't feel like I had an opportunity to actually shop. I can't even remember what I worked on this month other than a biscornu. I'm just losing track of time so much these days.

Spending so far is $73.48
I have $151.52 banked

Late Biscornu Finish

I'm so happy this one is done!
I was so sure that I was going to run out of red before the end. There turned out to be just enough for one side so I had to use a different darker red for the bottom. I think it gives the sides a gradient look so I'm happy with it.
The colour variation in the green is a bit more noticeable in person.
I haven't been able to figure out the name or the designer, so this will just have to be the Unknown Biscornu ;(

TUSAL and Small SAL Miss

Yay my TUSAL jar looks nice with all that white and the metallics that can't be seen.

Boo! My biscornu isn't finished. I actually thought there was another Wednesday this month and was congratulating myself on how early I was going to be done until I saw the posts today. Oh well, at least I was on point for 8 months, and I'll have this one done by the end of the week.
I will be honest and admit that I have no clue what the name of this biscornu is, nor do I know who the designer is. I apparently saved the image without noting the name or any information whatsoever and Google Reverse Image Lookup isn't finding anything. If anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate it.
