This week I can't show all my stitching as I've stitched a random PIF but it's yet to be made up then I've started some other secret stitching. I've also joined the Redwork/ Monochrome exchange on S&S, my third exchange on there, and I'm looking forward to that. I'll find out who my partner is sometime next week then I'll decide what I'm going to stitch etc.
Tuesday was Tiny Treasures SAL night on the HAED forum ( although I get the feeling I'm the only one in it! Trust me to join late!) and I made a little progress on it. I do feel that I make more progress in one evening on this than I ever have done on any other HAED!
I cheated a bit on Ink Circles Sea Stars, my SAL with Karen, and I stitched on it two evenings this week. I managed to get another sea horse finished, another stitched, a motif, two fish and another motif started so I was happy!
My Tournicoton chart from Hollie Stitch arrived on Wednesday and it is gorgeous. I can vaguely work out the finishing as it's made up very similar to the Ackworth Friendship Book. I am looking forward to stitching it but it won't be just yet as I have other things I'd like to do first plus I don't have any fabric and I don't want to buy any just yet!
Now I have a question to ask! I have a thing at the moment about stitcher's wallets, pockets etc! I don 't have one as yet but I do have two charts in my stash (AMAP and Tournicoton), I have several on my wish list and two in issues of GOS I'd like to stitch! How many can a stitcher have???? Lol! One for every project? One for every day of the week? Just for display? I feel a bit guilty wanting so many of them but there are so many lovely ones out there and have you seen this It looks fantastic but I couldn't commit to anything like this without knowing how much it was going to be and I know some of her designs work out very expensive! I seriously think I need to stop looking at stitchy sites and do more stitching instead!
Abi has been choked up with hayfever this week, so much so school rang on Thursday for me to pick her up. So we decided it was time to review her medication as she's been on medicine for years. So we're now trying her on tablets. She's not keen as they're a bit bigger than the ones she had for her knee but I am sure she'll be fine taking them. We'll see when she has her first one today.
Well I had better get off here and dry my hair. I didn't have a lie in this morning as I couldn't sleep and my back is sore so I was up , in the shower and had had my breakfast, taken these piccies and was on here before DH got up! I must catch up on blogs over the weekend too as I am way behind!
Hope all my US readers had a safe and wonderful 4th July! Have a great weekend!
