My stitching has been a bit slow this week. I have spent way too much time on the PC plus I'm onto the Queen Stitch bit on the beehive on Chatelaine Summer Afternoon and that has slowed me up considerably. I hate doing these in such close proximity and I know some of them are not done right but I refuse to frog them and start again!I would have loved to have got this bit finished but not to worry it'll get done next time! I do love the colours in this piece so far. I'm going to hang it with Winter's Eve when it's done then all I have to do is stitch the other two for the set! Lol!
I think Lisa, Julie and I are starting the Chatelaine Lavender Mandala from The Gift of Stitching next weekend. I will probably only be stitching it on the Saturday as part 4 ( I can't believe we're nearly at part 4!) of the Christmas mystery will be out on the Sunday. I haven't got the thread I chose for the mandala to sub for the Thread Gatherer Silk 'n' Colors yet but I can work round that until I do get it.
Something else I want to start, preferably today, is the Papillon Creations Serendipity chart. I did say I was going to stitch it in red, green and gold but I already have the Christmas mystery on the go in those colours. I think I might use a Dragon Floss for the main colour then pick two DMCs in similar shades. I am hoping I have some fabric big enough as well!I better have a look later!
I am also debating whether to sign up for the Polstitches SAL on Jo's forum as I have seen several WIP pics of it. It is a very pretty design but there's no way I'd be stiching along with everybody else as I have too much on the go at the moment. I could always save it for a later date though! I quite fancy trying some hardanger again.
That's all for today. Hope everybody is prepared for the snow we're supposed to be getting in the UK!
