So when I ran out of thread on Sunday evening I decided to get Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV out and try and finish off part 5, which I did. I just have the beads to add to underneath the stars. I have a love/ hate relationship with this mystery and right now I am somewhere inbetween the two. The Christmas tree does make it look quite nice but......... There is just something about it that doesn't seem quite "right"!
So onto the second week of my rotation and HAED Winter is back out. I didn't get as much as I'd have liked stitched last night as I kept getting disturbed ( Mum how do I rip songs off a CD, Mum how do I sync them to my MP3 player!) and I don't think I'll get far anyway as there are quite a lot of colour changes in this page. I might pick up HAED Guardian for a bit this afternoon as it's miserable weather here. It keeps coming showers and it's windy and it now feels cold!
I received my COTM from Sassy's Fabby's today and it's a very pretty colour called French Yellow. I am debating whether to use it for Just Nan Spring in the Air if it's big enough. I had picked out a Polstitches Dragon Shades one called Clouds but I may change my mind now!
I had a bit of a spend up the other day seen as all but one piece of the stash I sold has reached it's new owners. I'm hoping the other one will arrive today. Anyway I ordered the kit ( minus NPI silks) for Chatelaine Autumn Dusk from European Cross Stitch as it's not something I would normally buy myself so am looking forward to getting that. I will need to find a suitable hedgehog button as the one that was used is now discontinued. Also Chris talked me into buying Just Nan Queen of the Needle with embellishments from Lekker Threads as Kristina had 15 % off charts up to 7th May. Actually Chris didn't talk me into it exactly as I didn't make my mind up properly until yesterday and I was chatting to Chris on Friday. But I have to blame somebody don't I?!!! Chris says she is going to buy it off me when I'm done with it! Lol! I think I need to behave myself now and when I sell stash I'm done with in the future use the pennies for fabric etc and no more charts! Lol! I keep saying that then I find more I like when I'm looking at blogs like KarenV's I spent ages browsing through her blog last week and ended up ordering Blackbird Designs Quaker Garden from Wyndham Needleworks before it is retired. I have never ordered from them before so I hope the experience is a good one:)
That's me for today I think! Have a good week everybody!
