Theme-a-licious Check-in

So this is my first mid-month check in for Theme-a-licious.

I don't have any pix ready to post, so I think I'll just tell you a bit about my plans.

This month's theme is: Figural February - "Who are the people in your neighborhood...your WIP neighborhood, that is? Give your people-populated projects some face time this month."

Most of what I stitch includes people, but I will make a special effort on a couple of neglected pieces this month. (I hope.)

I received my 2012 Mirabilia Round Robin back (finally). However, the last stitcher only put in a partial section, and she stitched it in the wrong box. :(    So, I picked out the stitches she had done, and I stitched Nora Corbett's Lavender Pixie in the correct box. Dear, sweet Julie from Red Couch Stitcher , has volunteered to stitch the remaining box with Sweet Pea pixie, so I don't have to do two boxes. When I get it back from her, I will do the beading on all eight pixies. I will share a picture during my WIPocalypse check in.

I really want to put in another couple hundred stitches into Yiota's Bellydancer No. 1.

Here is what she looked like last time:

I'm almost certain that I won't reach the actual bellydancer, but I'd like to make some progress.

I have also long neglected my Passione Ricamo Mistery Fairy SAL. I completed through Step 2. We've received Step 8 at the beginning of February. I guess I'm a little behind.

This is what it looked like through Step 2 (keeping in mind that I do the beading at the end):

So, let's see if I've made any progress by the end of the month. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Good progress on your Yiota's piece. I need to get caught up on the PR SAL, also. And another SAL, and,...... there's just never enough time! :-)

Wow, you have a lot planned!! That Mistery Fairy SAL looks really intriguing! I love the swirly border.

Both of your pieces are looking great! So you are a little behind on the PR. As long as you enjoy each and every stitch. I am so happy that you finally received your RR back. And what a sweet stitching friend to stitch the other block for you. I can't wait to see this one all beaded up. It's going to look even more gorgeous than it already is.

So pleased that your RR arrived back and that Julie is going to help out. A Happy Ending!!

Love seeing everyone else's PR Mystery too. The border put me off, I'm not a big border stitching fan!

I can't wait to see the belly dancer! You have a good start on that one. I'm also still on part 2 of the PR Fairy Mystery SAL, but I'm stitching all the blue background too.
