New Moon

Well it was last week anyway. My excuse for, once again, being late with the Totally Useless SAL is that we were away. (Which is actually true!). So here is my jar as it stands now.

It's amazing how the stuff keeps on going in although the jar appears to be full.

For our week away, I decided to take Celtic Summer with me. I looked out all the threads (except two which I don't appear to have - I could have swarn I ordered them all!). I bagged everything up carefully, put them in the case - and then left it all in the car for the week! Ooops!

So progress isn't as good as it should be, but she is definately coming along.

I think I really need to devise some kind of rotation to my stitching. That way, something might get finished and I might see some reall progress with stuff. For now, I think it is back to Tatty Teddy as I do have a deadline for him (even if it's January).

Hope everybody is keeping well, and happy stitching to all.

We Have Lift Off!

Well almost! I've made a start on the Tatty Ted height chart and it is actually coming along quite quickly. We have one of the three teddies and some balloons. I just need to attach him to them and finish off the height guide to the right and then that is the top half of the chart done. I have to say it's a fun stitch after enchanted flute! The other day Rachael reminded me about the EMS advent calender that I had started. I was ashaimed to say that I had got no further than number 1. So I got it out again the other day. I have now finished number 2 .....
and made a start on number 3. Hubby is out tonight and tomorrow night so hopefully I will finish number 3 in that time. I still think I'm expecting too much to get this finished for the end of November but we will see how it goes.

Happy stitching everybody!
