Totally Useless SAL, some decent photos and maths!

Firstly here is my Totally Useless SAL photo for this month. For some reason standing it upside down makes it look less full than it actually is.

Totally Useless SAL
My camera came back from repair today, hooray! No more out of focus phone photos. This camera is able to take better close up shots than my previous one so there will be some experimenting along the way. If I manage to take photos half as good as Jane at Miss Jane's Stitching I will be happy.

So these are two in focus shots of my recent finishes.

Simply Snowdays

Icy Hill
So far this week progress on White Nights has been slow. At this rate it is going to take a week for each of the buildings in part 5. There are eight of them. This means that I might get on to part 6 by September if I stick to doing White Nights one week a month. So if each subsequent part takes half a year to complete and there are six part left, that will be three years. So estimated completion date 2013. Now that is scarey. Having depressed myself I had better get back to it, one more evening to go. Let's hope I finish the building or I might have to adjust my calculations.

Maybe it's best not to do the maths in the first place.

Happy stitching

Snowmen finishes are adorable! Congrats - and don't worry about the time frame - you never know what you can do!

Lovely pics of your finishes. I really like Icy Hill, it's a make you smile one

Good luck with your White Nights, I can't see it taking it as long as you are calculating. Perhaps when MW is finished you'll double up your time on it.

Happy stitching to you.

Glad your camera is meeting your expectations. Stitching is great as always. I thought I might count how many squares of chart I had to complete on the Peacock. I gave up it was too depressing. Conclusion avoid maths stick to sewing.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for the encouragement on St. Petersburg. It's a long haul on that one! Your finishes are great - very cute.
