I don't seem to have got much done on my new start this week. I started Just Nan Spring in the Air on Monday evening and, granted I didn't stitch on Tuesday evening, I have only got the first band done! Having said that I have had four pansies to stitch one over one so they have taken up a lot of time. I might get more done now those are complete! So here's my WIP pic so far this week. I love the look of these tiny pansies.
I received my Ebay win yesterday as well as the Cat's Whisker's Heartstrings chart which I bought with my credit from Jayne's Attic I'm going to make a couple of the little bags for Christmas presents for DH's aunties. So I am now seriously thinking of stitching from my (chart) stash until December. The reason in saying December is because it's Christmas and also my birthday so I think I'll deserve a bit of a treat by then. Anybody care to join me and help me along? I will still buy fabric and threads but only if I need them for anything I stitch in between times but I do have quite a bit of fabric on hand and I shall still have my Sassy's Fabbys COTM each month if I carry on with it for the rest of the year. I do have a couple of charts on order, one of which is on it's way from DSL You may wonder why I have suddenly decided on this! Well I bought myself a notebook and wrote all my charts in it and supplies I needed for them plus left spaces where I could write start and finish dates so I had a record and realised I had 30 charts and that's without counting the HAEDs I have! I know it's probably peanuts to what some of you have but it's a lot for me really and I can easily stitch from those for the next five months and not make that big a dent in them! Lol!
We went to see Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End on Tuesday! Wow what a fantastic film! I can't wait until it comes out on DVD and we can see it again! I have loved all three films and can't understand why the critics say this film isn't as good. Johnny Depp is as always gorgeous and I just love Geoffrey Rush as Barbosa! If you go see it there is a bit worth seeing at the end of the credits.
Other than that we have had a quiet half term. DH has been decorating the bathroom and it now looks bright and clean. Jess has been revising Maths and Biology and Abi has had some Maths revision to do. I can understand Jess having it to do when she has GCSEs but Abi is only in year 7! I do think that school holidays should be just that with no homework etc but it seems some teachers have different ideas!
Hope everyone has a had a good week. I'll be back Monday probably with my another Spring in the Air WIP!
