I have made a huge decision today. Yesterday I mentioned HAEDs and how I wasn't going to start another one until I'd finished both the quick stitches I'm doing. I want to have just one full size and one quick stitch on the go at once.( although I am itching to start the other two full sized ones I have!). I should be able to get on much quicker with them that way. Well ( deep breath) today I have decided that my HAED chart buying obsession has come to an end . Don't get me wrong I love them and I wouldn't part with the charts I have but I have more than I can probably stitch in this lifetime, although I will have a damn good try, and I don't see the point in buying more that are just going to sit there. It's a waste of money and money I could be spending on something else! I fully intend to keep on stitching them but as for buying them it's the end of an era! LOL!
I finished putting the beads on Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV earlier this afternoon so here it is at last! I am just showing the inner frame rather than the whole as this bit fit in the scanner so it's a slightly clearer piccie. I'm hoping the next part will have something different in it rather than a frame or something. Just as long as there are no nutcracker soldiers or anything like that! LOL!
I am all set for the SAL I'm joining in with on LHN The Chocolate Shoppe. I have my fabric ready ( and I didn't need to buy any) so I just need to sort the threads. I even have a frame that should work for it when it's finished. I think the SAL starts on Wednesday ( Am I right Claire?) so I shall stitch on it probably just on Wednesday afternoons.
I am getting a little jittery on the stash wagon but am still hoping I can make it until 1st April. I think I got a bit of a shock when I realised how far away 1st April was when I did my ticker. January seems to have been a long hard month somehow with not much nice post and nothing to look forward to stash wise. The longest I have lasted in recent times has been 6 weeks so I need to go longer than that! LOL! Help me out please!!!!!!!!!!
