Merry Christmas!

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I finally have a page finish! Page 2 SK Sunny is now complete which means I have finished my yearly goals! Very happy with myself =).

I bought two charts aswell recently as part of my xmas from my future in-laws......yes I got engaged!! Sooooo happy and feel very lucky to have him in my life =). I got Queen of Hearts Cameo (Anderson) and Water Faery (Strelkina).

I was also very lucky to be gifted two RAK's, one fron Nancy (Christmas Dreams - Gelsinger) and one from Diva (Michelle Davis) (Kuik Montage). They were so kind and I can't thank them enough =)

Hope you are all well!

Sweet September

Well, winter is almost upon us. We have predictions for snow already! I'm getting ready with my winter coat and boots lol.

I still have no page finishes yet. Haven't had much stitchy time as I have a lot going on at the moment and some days I just don't have the heart for it.

I have however bought another chart! I had to get Fairy Sisters before Fain is retired and here is how she should look;

 Looking forward to stitching this up. Lots of block colour yet very effective.

As always, thanks for reading!

Couldn't resist the HAED Sale!

30% off! You can't knock that lol. Didn't want to spend much as I already have a lot of charts (looks at 'Future Projects') so decided to buy QS Moon Amethyst - Nene Thomas. I love her work but can't start another full size chart so this QS is a perfect size to add into my rotations at some point. What can I say......I'm weak!

And here she is!

Solstice & Equinox Started!

Finally started it! I managed approx 1380 stitches as part of the SAL. Not nearly as much as I would have liked but still proud. It's been a pleasure to stitch on so far, even the sparklies.

Next pic I post of this will be a page finish. Might take a while as I'm rotating with SK Sunny weekly.

Thanks for looking =)

New Start!

I've finally started Solstice and Equinox! I'm so excited. I'm stitching it for my boyfriend Chris so it is a labour of love =). It has 136800 stitches in it and I am stitching it on 25 ct Magic Guide evenweave 1 over 1. I will post an update picture at the end of next week but don't think I will have a page done yet. Here is a pic of what it should look like when finished;

Goals for 2011

Happy New Year everyone!

I've set up my goals for this year in the hope it will keep me focused and spur me on. They are ~

  • Finish TT Purple Dragon (I should manage this fine!) - Currently at approx 7000 stitches out of 11016.
  • Finish page 1 and 2 of SK Sunny ( Hoping to just completely finish it but not confident enough to add in the last page!) - Currently at 1200 stitches out of 21375.
  • Make a start of first BAP, Solstice and Equinox.
They might not seem like big hopes but to me they are lol. Last year I did so badly with my stitchy bug and it wasn't until the last few months I really got back into it again. I'm on a run at the moment so I hope it stays!

I'll post another update on TT Purple Dragon once I have completely finished the first page, after that it should be the final finish!
