Progress Update

I've not had a chance to blog much recently but I have been busy stitching. I'm taking part in my first round robin and my initial part of that is almost done, ready to send out to the other participants.

I've also done number one and started number two of the EMS advent freebie. I'm doing this as a surprise for hubby and trying to stitch on it when he is not around - which is not easy. Trying to get all 24 done my be quite a challenge. Anyway here is 1 and half of 2.

I've also been doing biscournu which is close to being stitched together. I might try to finish that tonight to get something out of the way and completed. But my biggest progress in on Enchanted Flute a HAED design. I've done about 2,000 stitches which is about 1/3rd of the first page. I am stitching 1 over 1 on 32 count so the stitched area so far is very small - anyway that's my excuse for an appauling photograph (I think I need some lessons). But I think you can get the jist of how it is developing. I'll see if hubby can take something better when he gets home.

A Bag and Snow

This is a little bag that I stitched for a friend who is a card maker. She had bought the kit some time ago as a card topper but hasn't got round to stitiching it. So, I've stitched it for her. Sorry the pic is out of focus, but I only took one photo and it's gone back to her now. It was a fun little stitch.

I've been give an award by Rachael which I am very honoured to receive. I shall give the idea some thought and then pass it on.

I pomised a pic of the snow here. Well I was suddenly late for work and by the time I got home the whole lot had gone. We did have more on the Thursday, and the closed the school but again it was gone by the end of the day. The children weren't happy about school being closed either as the eldest was supposed to be going on a school trip and the youngest had her class assembley. They did enjoy playing in it though!

Oh - and great guess by Pumpkin. It is indeed a dog - a Golden Retreiver to be exact. Well done - give yourself a pat on the back.

What is it?

Ok I've got a bit of a guessing game for you. We were away last week so I took a small project with me to do. I've done about a quarter of it so far and I don't think you can tell at all what it is going to be. So here is your chance to prove me wrong. Any ideas? Sorry, no prizes just the feel good factor of getting it right.

I've also started a biscornu just for the fun of it. Actually that's nearly finished so I'll post a pic soon. I've also bought the chart for Celtic Summer. I got all the speciality bits in a great deal a little while ago, so just need to get some fabric and then I can make a start.

Thank you everybody who commented on my Celtic Winter. It was lovely to see some new faces, I hope you visit again. She's still waiting to be framed at the moment (and probably will do for a couple of months while we recover financially from the holiday).

We've actually had some snow here! I'll get a picture and post it later.
