It's another roll and a few more to go! Lol! I can't actually remember how many more I have in my stash to stitch but I do know that I need to buy three more! Now out of those three I bid and won one for a very good price on Ebay so once I have that one in my hands I only need two more. Anyway here is the roll I started last month and have finally finished
Shepherd's Bush Schoolhouse Roll
32 count vintage green linen
DMC & GAST
Started 29th September 2010
Finished 17th October 2010
I didn't have the school bell charm and had nothing suitable to put in its place so haven't added anything. Now I need to get the Happy Pumpkin one started and finished for Halloween!
I am very happy with my two evenings progress on Shores. This block is going so well and I am hoping to get back on track and have this one finished by the end of the month.
Last night I stitched on Blackbird Designs Their Song. It's almost finished! I would have managed to stitch more but I had to frog but I did get what I took out restitched and more done besides so I was happy :) I think this will be finished next Sunday!
The pre-order that I did yesterday was for the Just Nan Christmas Sheep Ornament Pocket which you can put the Vintage Woolly Sheep thread winder in. I had a newsletter from Deb at Stitches n Things and read about it on there. It is limited though so I may not be lucky enough to even get one even though I've pre-ordered as it just depends on how many each shop orders. Keeping my fingers crossed! I usually miss out on things like this or just don't bother but I'm not with this one. It may be the last stash shopping I do for a very long time unless I have funds. Our government are announcing massive spending cuts this week and I have to say I am extremely worried as my DH works in the public sector and that's where the cuts are going to be. Whether or not it will be in the department he works for or not we shall have to wait and see but I fear that whatever this new coalition government do it won't be pretty and will cause a lot of hardship and possibly throw our country back into recession. Anyway enough of those depressing thoughts!
Stitching plans for the rest of the week are The Sampler Girl Jane Austen Sampler Stocking with Barb tonight, tomorrow night is UFO night so the Christmas mystery will be coming out for a while, then until Friday I'll be working on getting Michelle's trade piece finished and made up :)
Other plans, my Dad is having a home visit from an optician on Wednesday afternoon so I need to be there and Thursday afternoon I have my dreaded smear. Last time I had one it was extremely uncomfortable and painful so as you can imagine I really don't want to go but a bit of pain and discomfort for a possibly life saving thing is better than the alternative.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments on my first flat fold finish:) I am so pleased with how it turned out and have it on display. I intend to leave it out all year!
Whatever you are doing hope you have a wonderful week.
