Rosetta - not the milk pattern

Since my celtic banner happy dance, I have been working on rosetta from Ink Circles.
I want to start working on getting some of my older WIPS out of the stitching bag, and I don't mean into a ufo pile.

Over the weekend, between new course reading, I managed to get 2 of the motifs done.

Here is where I am now

For those new readers, the pattern is from Ink Circles, and I'm using threadworxs mosaic

Now.... If you wonder where the title of my post comes from.... Search Instagram for #rosetta :)
Btw, I'm bbrown426 if you are on Instagram

Have a great day!

Peer pressure

This weekend was Kathy's annual stitching weekend

Miss Muriel even joined in on the fun. Check out Kathy's blog to see more of Muriel's weekend.

Dani and Christin were "suggesting" I work on Celtic Banner as I was close(ish) to a finish. Friday night I worked on baroque for a bit. I managed to get a motif done.

Saturday morning I fell into peer pressure and brought out Celtic Banner.
This is where I started.

And this is where I was as of last night. Not as much as I wanted to get done, but there was lots of chatting and giggles in between stitches.

And here is the whole thing to date

Update + IHSW August 2014

It's been a while since I have done a real update
I have attempted the weekly theme rotation, but not having much luck with it

Up until Aug 2nd I was giving Celtic Banner lots of love. Here is where it sat before it went back in the WIP basket

Next I gave some love to another WIP that hasn't seen the light of day for awhile, Autumn Leaves. I managed to get a page done. Just one more and I will be fully across the top.

Next up I pulled out my Santa's Village and started the post office
Here is where I was before switching again on Friday

Next WIP I worked on, which happened to be over IHSW, was Ink Circles Baroque. I managed to get the first motif done.

My next CGA exam is September 4th.
I think I will keep working away at baroque when I have some stitching time. It's easy to leave out and only has one thread colour :)

Hope you all have had a great weekend!
