Lisa and I had a new start on New Years Day of the Kelmscott Designs Tombstone Angel. We decided it would be nice to start something that we could actually start and finish on the day or in two days. Once I started mine after we'd had dinner on New Years Day ( duck and chicken with roast potatoes, roast parsnips, peas, carrots, sprouts, stuffing and pigs in blankets! Duck and chicken because Abi does not like duck!) I could not put it down and I finished it that afternoon. Yesterday I mounted it onto the angel and here it is all finished :)

Started and finished 1st Januart 2011
SAL with Lisa
I have also finished LHN Fa La La and got it half made up so will show that when it's done.
I started Shepherd's Bush Emmanuel's Song on Monday which is my SAL piece that I'm doing with Barb and Colleen. Unfortunately I spent half the evening unravelling the DMC cutwork thread that was in the kit so didn't quite manage to get the first band finished but I did get more done than I had expected. Again no picture as I forgot to take one so will take one for my next blog post.
I had planned not to start BBD AotH until Shores was finished but I think I might just have to pop a few stitches into it soon as I'm itching to get started. This will be my SAL with Jane and Valerie :)
This is a message for Gabi. Please can you resend the email you sent me. I'm afraid it was in my spam folder and I noticed it just as I had clicked empty and couldn't stop it. So sorry.
Will be back in a day or two once I'm finished making up LHN Fa La La. Hopefully I might just be in a brighter mood by then as I've been feeling quite low since Big Ben rung in the New Year. I actually ended up in tears but only Abi knew at the time.
Love and hugs
