It's been a few days of stitching lots on my HAEDs:) Friday through Monday was UFO/ SWIP SAL on the HAED forum so I decided to take part with HAED Guardian which really needed a good kick start. As it was I only really stitched on it properly on Friday and Saturday with a few stitches added Sunday and Monday afternoons. I am very happy to report that I have almost finished another page making 3 in all but I still have to finish of stitching over the metallic on page 7 with DMC.
Last Wednesday and Thursday were my SAL days with Lisa and Claire and the ladies at the Our Friends HAED SAL so out came the very lovely TT Purple Dragon and good progress was made again:) I am enjoying this piece so much.
A bit of progress next on Blue Ribbon Designs Winter Wingding although I'm going to have to rethink the snowflakes as they don't show up on this fabric. I may have to try DMC 3865 or something like that. I don't think you can see it but I have stitched a snowflake. Any suggestions???
Last night I decided I needed to get Bea out or she's going to turn into a UFO. To my amazement I actually enjoyed stitching on her and when DH went to bed at 10pm ( he was up early this morning) I decided to stay up and stitch a bit more. I usually go to bed at the same time as he does as I'm not keen on sitting on my own when everyone has gone to bed but he's had lots of early mornings of late so early nights and it cuts into my stitching time! LOL!
Finally a little progress on Just Nan When Barnabee Met Bella biscornu. This one will be coming out this evening so I hope to get a lot more done.
Next weekend, as far as I know, is the start of the HAED Storykeep SAL so I'll be taking part in that. In think I will only stitch Friday and Saturday on it. We had two free charts to choose from and I chose Moon Fantasy. My threads are sorted and my fabby is ready and I'm patiently waiting for the first page to come out:)
So that's all my stitchy news for now. I've been a bit naughty and pre-ordered the new Lizzie*Kate Christmas double flip-it's from Down Sunshine Lane. I couldn't resist as they are gorgeous.
I'll leave you with these pictures taken by DH on Sunday:) This little fella is a regular visitor in our garden. We don't know if he's been got at by a cat or if another bird did it but he's lost a lot of feathers and it looks quite raw on his back. He's happy enough though and spends ages hopping round the garden and sitting on the patio wall singing. Here is is but what is he looking at?
Yep he was looking at this and decided to have a drink! Excuse the green but no sooner do we clean it off it comes back. We do have a bird bath but he ( and a few sparrows!) seem to prefer the waterfall!
The hole in the front garden is now filled, the path has been concreted and the slate put back as it was thankfully! They did make a good job of making everything right.
Take care everyone.
