As predicted, it was a stinking hot weekend so there is not a lot of progress to report on Japanese Octagon Box. This crooked little scan shows my progress to date – I have completed the pond plants and lamp back stitch and done all the specialty stitches. I have also managed to do one corner with the beading and gold backstitching. Unless some sort of miracle occurs I don’t think I’m going to finish before the end of the month, Que Sera!

The Ornie Stitchalong blog has some fabulous finishes – congratulations to all who participated this month!
