Girly Gothic:)

Wahoooo!!! I actually managed to finish page 1 of HAED quick stitch Girly Gothic last night! I didn't think I was going to get it done but I think determination set in and I did it! Phew! So next time she comes up in my rotation I'm moving down to page 3 instead of across to page 3. It's not quite a full page so shouldn't take me as long to to ( famous last words). I really like the look of this piece although the sparklies do not show up on the scan.

So tonight it's back to the lovely Just Nan Queen of the Needle and I'm hoping to finish the band I was stitching on last week. I ought to stitch some beads on too rather than leave them all until the end but as I'm very good at throwing beads everywhere and losing them down the settee I think I might wait, sit to the table and sew them all on at the same time when I'm finished with the stitching! Tomorrow it's Ink Circles Sea Stars which I'm also looking forward to. After that I'm supposed to have a new start; Chatelaine Spring Morning; but I need to get the kit out and wind all the threads onto bobbins. Might do that this afternoon instead of stitching as Jess has a half day today due to one of her teachers being off and I don't think I could concentrate on Chris' RR with Jess in!!

Have a great week everyone! {{{{hugs}}}}

I'm so jealous, lol, as you know I tried to stitch this cutie patootie piece but I am just not ready for this type of stitching. Yours is gorgeous!

Great progress.

I used to have the same problem with beads Sally - my advice is invest in a Tacky Bob, they are about a fiver from Jayne and certainly earn there keep as you rarely lose a bead when using this.

She's so cute! I still can't believe that they call her a quick stitch though.

Great progress on GG Sally - well done you! Can't wait to see the progress on QOTN too.
Like Helen, I wouldn't be without a Tacky BOB for beading - rarely lose a bead since getting one. :0)

WOW Sally....you took on a big challenge with the HAED. Just looking at their patterns makes my head spin :-) Are they as hard as they look? It's coming along very nicely.

I did get your e-mail. Thanks. I'm so busy and so far behind but I will catch up with you soon.

Have a great day!

That's a cute one Sally. Is it for one of your girls?
I have to say I'm in awe of all you manage to get done. You are one turbo stitcher!
