Stitchy Update!

I thought it was time I did a blog update to show you the stitchy progress I've made this week:) I got the roof done on Blackbird Designs Blessings and Kind Wishes so that was a good evening's stitching! I think next Sunday I shall do a different bit rather than carry on with the house or I might get sick of it! Lol!
Monday evening we had a meeting at school about early entry language GCSEs as Abi is doing her Spanish GCSE a year early so will do it in year 10 rather than year 11, same as her Maths GCSE. So I didn't get as much done on Bygone Stitches A Quaker Christmas as I might have done otherwise. Although the meeting was rather boring we did feel it was important that we know what was going on and what would happen etc.

Tuesday evening I was very happy with the progress I made on Ink Circles Sea Stars and, providing things go to plan, I am still on track for an end of September finish:) The HUGE motif is almost done so just a smaller one and some of the sea monster to do.
Last night was the smalls SAL on HAED so, as usual, TT Letter J came out. Not sure if you can see all the progress I made as the very plae blue does not stand out too well. I'd like to have this finished by the end of the year but not sure one evening a week stitching on it is enough.

When I finished Sea Stars Lisa and I were going to do the SALexandre but we have decided to put it on hold for a while as Lisa doesn't want to add anything else into her rotation at the moment or take anything out, which I can fully understand, so we'll be starting it at a later date. So when Sea Stars is finished I shall either replace it with one of my few UFOs or start one of the two stockings I want to get stitched for Christmas! Lol!

I am happy to report that Chris now has a fully stitched RR. You may remember that the last stitcher was unable to stitch on it and Nicki kindly offered to stitch it and Chris now has it back. Nicki thank you so much for stitching this for Chris. You are an absolute star:) I must admit that I was upset that it wasn't complete seen as I organised it but now I am happy:)

I think that's all from me today:) Oh Beachmama I am not sure if you're asking about a print of the girls holding hands or a copy to put on your PC but you can right click on the picture and save the picture to your PC. Hope that helps.

Also does anyone know how to make pictures clickable? When I placed them at the right of my post they were mostly clickable but now I have them on the middle they're not.

Hope everyone is having a good week and looking forward to the weekend:) I know I am!

Hugs

Sally, you'll embarrass me! It was fun to do for Chris :)

Your WIPs are all looking great. Quaker Christmas is huge isn't it? I'd love to do it but I'll have to see - maybe one day! :)

P.S. If you're deciding on a UFO to stitch, how about Sara Butcher's Winter? I love that one and miss your updates ;)

They are all looking wonderful, and you are soooo close on Sea Stars. With that large motif done, the rest should move quickly. This is going to be so awesome finished up. You'll have a wonderful happy dance very shortly. :)
