This past month in the theme-a-licious was Jumanji June. The idea was to stitch something animal or jungle related and I did have the perfect piece, a photopiece of my son at the zoo with a tiger but unfortunately I didn’t get to spend as much as I would have liked at it. This month I did have to concentrate on getting several birthday pieces done and I’m pleased with that so I can’t be that to put out.
Here is my meagre progress.
|Photostitch – before|
|Photostitch – after|
This is what it will eventually end up as. I’m hoping to do more on it when I get the birthday pieces for the remainder of the year finished.

The theme for July is –
It’s a jolly holiday with your WIPs…you can concentrate on Christmas designs, ornaments, or even pick a different holiday to render in stitchy goodness.
I have a total blank as to what I’m going to work on. I have quite a bit to do on my next birthday piece and unless Harry Potter has been made into a holiday and someone forgot to tell me I’ll have to pick something. We don’t do July 4th here in Ireland, its a bit late for Easter and St Patricks Day and I’m not so big into stitching for Halloween so I guess that leaves me with Christmas. I may start an ornament this month and aim to get it finished but we will see. You will have to check back on the 15th to see what holiday I’ve come up with.
