After 9 months of stitching Sea Stars is finally finished! Wahooooooooo!!!! I started this back on January 1st as a SAL with Karen and although she put hers on hold a while ago because she was had a lot of shifts at work I kept going with mine. Now that it's finished and I can see it in all it's glory I have to say that I really love it. As I went on with it I wasn't sure but that's all changed now. It'll be going to the framers later in the week:)

Started 1st January 2008
Finished 30th September 2008
Thank you Karen for stitching along with me and I hope you get chance to go back to yours soon and get it finished.
Sunday evening I had a good stitching session on Blackbird Designs Blessings and Kind Wishes and I got the storks stitched. I am really enjoying this piece and look forward to stitching on it so much every Sunday. I had hoped to have the mystery started by now but I think it will have to wait until I've finished all the Loose Feathers for this year.
Monday was Bygone Stitches A Quaker Christmas evening and it was going well until I realised I'd made a mistake so I have to frog that bit before I start on it next time. I'm thinking that I really need to work on it more than one night a week to get it finished for Christmas so I think it'll get attention for two nights instead. I don't want to still be stitching it in 2009 when I've got 2008 stitched!
That's all my stitching for now. I have posted the private autumn colours biscornu off today so, finger's crossed, that should reach it's new Mum tomorrow. I have the 5th part of the Symphony SAL to start but it's a fairly small part this time so shouldn't take too long to stitch.
I went and photocopied and enlarged the charts for my MM&I RR so that I can cut the copies up and see where I want them. Hopefully I will make a decision soon as to how I want it to look then I can get sorted with fabric.
I managed to finally get caught up on blogs the other day ( I had over 100 posts to catch up on!). I always plan to keep up with them every day so I don't get that many but plans don't always go as we want them!
Thank you all for reading and for all your lovely comments on my ornament in my last post.
