Tasty kitty
I did in fact end up going back and unpicking that one bookmark.

I ended up skipping to July as you might notice because of...reasons. Idk. I'm sure I had a good reason, lol... anyway, I'll get around to doing the rest of the months eventually, for anyone curious to see their month.

I'm sure that no one but me will notice this, but despite my unpicking of July I discovered I had missed a stitch there, and missed *many* stitches in September. I'm not sure why I'm slipping so badly lately... feels bad, man.

On the bright side, like I said, I don't think anyone but me will ever know exactly which stitches I missed. And I'm sure even I will have no idea in a few years XD

Eeeh... looking at this photo makes me cringe a little because it's not very well laid out at all, heh. Oh well... but as you can see I've done a lot of work from my last photo. I really like it, it's very easy to work on XD You can see the flags at the top of the ship there, and the bones of the sails. I'm ridiculously proud of it, haha.

Good work on the bookmarks.

It's great when you find a project that you both enjoy working and can see the progress as you go.

Thanks! And yeah, I really enjoy that, it really makes it feel like you're doing a lot of progress, haha.

They all look great to me!

By "not well laid out" I assume you mean it's all over the place right now? That could be a good thing! You have lots of reference points so you can start filling in wherever you like. And it will all end up the same. =)

I meant more that the picture I took isn't very nice, in my opinion. I'll have to try and take it in an area with more light next time.

Thank you!

Pretty bookmarks! That set is on my Christmas list, and it's nice to see how good they look.

BTW, I don't see any missing stitches; the designs look attractive and balanced. I bet nobody will notice, and that a year from now you won't remember!

(Edited to fix typo.)

Yeah, I think you're definitely right there XD Just as I was backstitching I kept on going 'oh there's another one...argh...too late now.'

I hope you have as much fun stitching them as I have, missing stitches aside. They're fun and super fast to stitch up, so pretty much perfect if you're busy and just want to do quick projects in your spare time.

That's exactly what I want them for --- thanks for confirming that they're a good choice!
