|Blackwork Dragon - Aug 8th|
This last week I didn't get a lot of anything done as the heat was just too much and I just couldn't get motivated to pick up a crochet hook for most of the week. I think yesterday was the first day that I crocheted and of course I ended up working on a couple more baby hats which is great. I continue to get them done but this month the progress as been very slow on them.
The projects that did get a little bit of attention this week were two different cross-stitch projects that I am working on. The one that I could work on outside was the Blackwork Dragon by Jennifer Aiken-Smith. This is one that I started in April and it was put down until this weekend when I was able to get some stitching done on it. Having a project with just one colour was great while sitting on the balcony.

The detail is going to take me some time but even getting a little bit done will make me very happy. I am thinking that if I can get into the routine of working on this project for a while I should be able to make some progress on it.
The second project that I worked on was a Tiger Lilly design that I have. This project was started in July but didn't see much attention until this week. It was stitch night on Wednesday so I took this piece with me and that was the focus while sitting in a nice air conditioned area for a while.

This week I am hoping to be able to get some more crocheting done as well as some cross-stitching. I am not sure which project will get the most attention but will see how things go. I also have a Monarch Butterfly cross-stitch on the go so will see which projects get the attention this week.
There are a few things that I need to get done for work this morning and then I will see what I can get done on my various projects.
