|Blackwork Dragon - August 14th|
The weather wasn't as hot this past week so it meant that I was able to spend a bit of time sitting inside and cross-stitching.
Blackwork Dragon was one project that got a bit of work early in the week and then I didn't work on it again. It does take quite a bit of time to get the detail work done so this is a project that won't be progressing very quickly.

|Monarch Butterfly - August 9th|
|Monarch Butterfly - August 16th|
The Monarch Butterfly is again a project that I converted to cross-stitch so there isn't a completed project to compare my work with. It is fun looking at the original picture I am using and seeing how much of the design that I have been able to stitch so far.

|Cake Cakes yarn - Pop|
The new yarn that I am trying to Caron Cakes and the colour I am using is Pop so it is interesting to see how it is going to work up. I didn't get a lot of the shawl worked on yesterday but so far I am enjoying how soft the yarn is to handle and how quickly this shawl is working up. I am not sure how long it will take to get this project finished but at least I was able to make some progress on it quickly yesterday after getting home with it. The shawl pattern is called Pineapple Peacock Shawl and it uses worsted weight so it is something that is quick to make.
It is now time to get to work so that maybe tonight I can work on t least one of these projects that I have on the go. I look forward to seeing how each of these projects progress this week.
