OK I know it's not been exactly been a whole week since my last post but I'm desperately trying to get back on track with a couple of posts a week instead of just one.
Anyway I have a few progress pictures to show. I started the needle case from BBD Peacock Pin Keep on Sunday and this is where I got to. It's on the same tea-dyed fabric I have used for the pin keep itself. Hopefully I should be ready to have a go at making all the pieces up soon.
Monday was my ususal SB SAL night with Barb and Colleen and I hope we all got plenty of stitching done :) This is my Pansy Roll so far. It looks so pretty. As I just have the chart I must remember to go on the SB website and find a photo to see what the charm is for this. I'm hoping I might just have something suitable!
I managed to finish the bottom left hand block on Drawn Thread The Sanctuary this week. I will admit that it didn't quite get finished on Tuesday evening so I finished it on Wednesday before I picked up LHN Travelling Stitcher. I do have the four sided stitch to do around this block and the bottom right one and that seems to take forever so I might do a bit then move onto something else like the trees. I want to get this finished this year but there seems to be so much still to do.
Almost forgot the SB ornament I've been stitching at craft club. This one is Wisemen Came and I'm really enjoying it. It's easy to stitch in company although I do have to stop if I'm getting involved in the chatting! Sometimes I do sometimes I don't; it depends on what the ladies are talking about. This week I managed to squeeze myself round to a vacant seat near the window so could see better.
Wednesday evening was SAL night with my surrogate sis Lisa. I am loving stitching LHN Travelling Stitcher. I've been looking forward to this SAL for such a long time and just love the colours of this piece. I remembered this week to stitch the leaves on the second tree and also finished off the grass before moving back to the house. Hopefully I'll finish building that one next week:)
Final progress for this week is my start on the next page of Guardian. The crazy thing is I settled down after lunch yesterday to grid the page and lo and behold it had been that long since I gridded my last page I could not remember how I'd done it!!! I did the outer gridding just fine but when it came to the rest of I just sat there staring at it. I actually don't think this is how I have gridded HAEDs before but it works so that's OK! Anyway this is my start and I won't post another progress picture until the end of the month.
Back to Blackbird Designs AotH Pumpkin Farm tonight and tomorrow night and the third part of Carol R's mystery SAL is due to be released so I may get some stitching in during the day over the weekend to stitch that. I was thinking yesterday that I have the urge to start something Autumnal but realised I have Pumpkin Farm on the go! Duh!!!
Is anyone thinking of or is joining Measi's WIPocalypse? I am thinking about it as I think it will be a good way of keeping up with my WIPs that might otherwise fall by the wayside ( like Guardian!). I'll only, hopefully, have two long term WIPs that I'll be carrying over into 2012 and anything else you start in 2012 can be included.
Well I think that's all from me for now. I need to go update my other blog too as I haven't written there for weeks.
Take care everyone.
Love & hugs
