Stitching marathon!

Hello all, hope you're enjoying your Easter weekend. I certainly am. I've been on a stitching marathon since I last posted and continuing to enjoy my rotation. 

Here's my first out the bag - Playtime Kitten:

I so love this design, she's so cute! I started the back stitch since that's what brings her to life. I really need a name, suggestions welcome!

Next was Beverley's Owl and I had a page finish!

I then moved to pg 2 to start the outline. It's a much smaller page so should stitch up nicely. 

Then the final name out of the bag was this little chap Frederick the Literate but I like to call him Fred!

I like I can see his head now and will probably do some back stitch next time to add some detail. I don't like leaving it til the end!

So the bag was empty, so needed swapping so had all designs to choose from this time. Hubby picked out Love Spring which is so apt I thought. 

As you can see, I finished pages 3 and 4! I love this design and should be finished this year. 

Hubby has picked Ladybug Love from the bag, but not much to show just yet so will wait til the 10 hours are over first. 

Now confession time, I know I said no new starts or purchases, but my current stash has been calling me!  This design is called Paris and I bought it just before Christmas. 

Since we're going to France in a couple of months, I think it would create a lovely memory.   Hubby who dislikes me having new starts actually likes it and has agreed it can be put in the bag to be started when it gets picked out.

Sk that takes my WIPs up to 14, but I'm not sad, far from it, this is something completely different to my usual designs, so I'm looking forward to getting stuck in!

Happy Stitching!
