I've been spending money!

They had a one day sale on the HAED sight yesterday to mark St Patricks day and there is a chart I've had my eye on for a while (You can see where this is going can't you!)

Yep, I gave in and bought Dragonfly

It's not as extravagent as it looks. To start with there was 30% off the chart, then I've already got the fabric and most of the threads. I've just ordered the rest of the threads from Sew and So they are always very quick at deliverying them so I should have them either tomorrow or Saturday. When I think I'm going to have time to actually stitch this, of course, is a different matter. Watch this space!

I'm Back!

I know I haven't been around for a long time. I completely lost any urge to stitch and got into a couple of computer games which used up all my spare time. However, over the last few week I've started stitching again - hurray!

So what progress do I have to show you? Well I got started again by stitiching this butterfly for cancer research. I thought it would be something fairly simple, just one colour thread and would give me a finish quickly to encourage me to get going on my other things. So here is the butterfly.

Since then I have got going again and put some time into Celtic Summer. She now looks like this.

I'm spending this week stitching on Enchanted Flute so I'll have something to show on that shortly.

Take care everyone and thanks for your visit.
