Summer ACEO WIP

It has been one of those weeks where I don't feel as though I have accomplished much in the way of stitching. I hadn't been stitching long Friday evening when I started with flashing in my right eye. It's been ages since I had this so I was not impressed! I put my stitching away, took a couple of piankillers for the inpending headache then laid on the settee. Sure enough the headache arrived but, thankfully, by Saturday evening it had gone so I got some stitching done. Last week was the turn of HAED Summer ACEO in my rotation and I decided to carry on with it over the weekend so here's my progress. As you can see I have finished her face. I have about 700 stitches left on this page then I can move onto page 5! At last I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!


This week it's HAED quick stitch Dragonette and I really want to get more done on that than I did last time! Part 5 of Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV is out on Wednesday and I'm really not looking forward to that after last month!


For those who asked, my latest HAED start is Selina Fenech's Guardian I just couldn't resist her any longer and wanted to start her for reasons known only to me! I have got about 20 rows of page one done which isn't bad for a couple of afternoon's stitching. I won't share a WIP pic yet as there's nothing to see really!


I have sold a few bits of stash lately, including my Dragon Floss collection so am now hoping to update my Gentle Art Sampler Threads collection as well treat myself to a couple of charts from my wish list. Not entirely sure which ones yet!

Have a great week everybody!
