My Christmas ornament for the exchange is on hold at the moment as I'm stitching on 32 count linen and it's driving me mad! Now I remember why I dislike linen and prefer evenweave! I stitched on it for two evenings and became very frustrated so thought I'd leave it for a day or two before picking it up again. So last night out came Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV so that I could make a start on part 10 which is another star. I actually managed to stitch all the silver of the outline of the star and have it meet which is a miracle as that didn't happen with last month's star!
This week in my rotation it is the turn of Just Nan Spring in the Air which I am really looking forward to. I may even have another finish if I get my finger out and nothing stops me stitching! Next week it's Papillon Creations Serendipity and I may get that finished too so the next round of my rotation will be all change:) Helen and I are hopefully starting our SAL on Just Nan Queen of the Needle on 19th November and stitching it on Monday evenings so I'm really looking forward to that. I haven't got my fabric yet but have chosen a Polstitches one called Dusky Rose so I'm going to order that on Wednesday when the postal strikes are over for this week. Only about another 7 weeks and I will be off the chart wagon too and I can treat myself to a chart or two ( or three or four!)!
I have now got the HAED charts I have for sale listed on my for sale blog but there are only three left now:)
Just want to say Huge congratulations to Yorkshire man James Toseland for winning the World Superbike Championship yesterday:) his last championship before moving to Moto GP next year! He comes across as being such a lovely bloke and DH and I are delighted he won. Just need Lewis Hamilton to win the Formula 1 championship now:)
That's all from me today but I thought you might like to see some sketches my daughter's did before I go:) The first one is one Abi did of Lara Croft.
And the next one is by Jess and it's Captain Jack Sparrow:)
Bye for now:)
