Finished 24th June 2010
I don't have any other finishes this week just my usual WIPs! First up is CHS Shores of Hawk Run Hollow and I am making, what I consider, to be relatively good progress on block 6 and 7. For all it's a double block it is going really well and I think I might just get it finished before the end of July ( I'm trying to do a block a month and seen as this is a double block I'm giving myself June and July!!! Lol!)
I am still plucking up the courage to start making up the casket of my JAT Sampler Garden piece but in the meantime I stitched a bit more on the needleroll ( I think!) which is one of the accessories that will go in the casket:) As you can see I've just started stitching the cat.
I actually got loads stitched on Chatelaine Spring Morning on Monday and Tuesday partly because it was such a nice afternoon on Tuesday I decided to sit out in the garden and those green vines just seemed to fly by!!! I do love how this is looking.
Finally HAED Guardian came out on Wednesday, again I sat out in the garden for a couple of hours, but when it came to stitching in the evening I just didn't seem to be in the mood somehow although I did make myself stitch on it for an hour before I put it away. I made a start on page 5 which is my 7th page. It's not a full page so, hopefully, it will go quicker!
I am really pleased with all the stitching I've done this month ( can you believe it's nearly July?!) and I feel I am finally back on track after spending way too much time on the PC over the last few months. I got too into the games on Facebook and now I've got rid of the ones that were taking up too much time which means I can now see posts from my family and stitchy friends! It also means less time on the PC and more stitchy time! I feel the happiest I have in many months in most aspects of my life.
Anyway next month Barb and I starting another SAL. It's another The Sampler Girl design and it's Return to the Sea With Jane Austen, which I am really looking forward to starting :) If anyone would like to join us please feel free to do so:)
I am really looking forward to visiting Chris for the day one day next month:) We're going to have a making a box day lol!!! I can't wait as I've never made one before:)
That's all my stitchy news for now:) I will be stitching on Shores this evening whilst watching Dr Who!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I'm hoping to sit out in the garden again tomorrow and stitch so keep your fingers crossed that the lovely weather we're having here continues:)
