Spring has sprung!

Wow, it is a glorious day today. It's a shame I've been stuck in an office for most of it.

My stitching progresses - here is the completed page one of Enchanted Flute.

I ordered the rest of the threads for this the other day so ordered the fabric and threads that I need for Celtic Summer while I was at it. Now, if I could leave Enchanted Flute alone for long enough I could make a start on it.

The golden retriever is also coming along, and is begining to look recognisable. I'll try to post a pic towards the end of the weekend so you can see the progress for yourselves.

The round robin is almost done, I've run out of thread so I will need to get some more, just not quite sure when! Does anybody know how close DMC is to Anchor? If I swap mid stitching will it show?

Lets hope this wonderful weather continues over the weekend and we get lots of lovely, bright sunshine for stitching in!

Wow! You know, I actually went to their website to look at the whole picture of your project and ended up downloading a freebie! It's all your fault if I go blind ;o)

That is grand Cath!! What thread do you need? If it's DMC I may have it and can send you some!

Thanks for your comments all. Good luck with the freebie Pumpkin. They are certainly challenging stitches but I'm loving it.

Rachael - the thread I need is Anchor 410. I'm happy to buy some but I'd rather buy the DMC equivalent as all my other threads are DMC - (I don't need much of an excuse to add to the collection!). Just wondered that if I used Anchor and DMC equivalents next to each on the same project would it notice! I suppose there's only one way to find out.
