All change!

Just a quicky!

A note to say that I'm praying along with other stithers that Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED) stays open!

W/C 10th September is Christened HAED appreciation week where everyone is encouraged to buy at least one chart to support the business! I hope you'll join me!

On another note, Kitties was starting to annoy me so I revived a UFO!!! Yay! It's a map of County Durham and made a lot of progress - when my hubby said "you'll be finished that one in no time" that I thought I had to accept that challenge!

I'm also making a new start today! QS Ladybug Love (HAED)!

QS Ladybug Love

To make sure I go back to them all I'm starting a new rotation which I'll talk more about at the weekend!

Happy Stitching!

Bookend Kitties progress!

Well after a long break from this one, I picked it up again, and I'm actually really enjoying it.  I think all teh confetti in page 1, but with no real detail just got me down.  However I'm loving seeing his face develop.  I've actually almost finished another column on this and hope to get close to finishing page 2 by the end of the bank holiday!

Meanwhile, I'm struggling against a strong desire to make a new start particularly as I got 5 RAKs in the past month! But I'm going to be good, finish Kitties and then Samantha.

I've also decided not to stitch the parenting sampler for my sister as by the time I've bought the chart, threads, fabric and got it framed it willbe over £50 and I'd rather spend it on some clothes and toys for the Christmas baby!  I may stitch it for the christening or her 2nd baby!

For now, my stitchy time is all mine. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

A finish!

Here's A Good Marriage - it only took me just over a month so pretty pleased with that!  Sorry for the dodgy photo - the linen obviously needs a good iron.  The wedding's not until next June but wanted it out of the way and want to do the Baby sampler for them for December The ABC of Parenting but as I've just booked my holiday, I'm stuck for money until after the next couple of paydays, sat laast I know how long it will take roughly.

I'm now going to return to Bookend Kitties to try and catch up with the HAED SAL.  I think I might just do it as both pages are partial ones and I've got my Q-snap frame now which keeps it nice and tight.

BUT I've ordered some 25count magic guide to re-do Think Pink so the temptation may proove too great, although it's out of stock until the end of the month, so you never know, I may just do it!

Happy Stitching everyone! xx

Dying to get back to my HAEDs!

I've been away for 2 consecutive weekends, once with the Hubby and last weekend to see both my sisters in Lincoln which was lovely.

For that reason I've not finished A Good Marriage yet, but I hope to get it done this weekend.

And then back to one of my HAEDs - either Bookend Kitties, Beacon Ridge or another page on Snowy Friends?  Not sure if to use the randomiser or just go for Bookend Kitties as I really need to get some more done on it so I can post some more pics on the HAED bullitin board.

I can't do Think Pink as I've decided to do it on Magic Guide and they don't have it in stock at the moment so will have to wait until the end of August for the re-start!

Wish me luck! Happy Stitching! xx
