I've also got photos of all the other stitching projects I'm working on - I have decided to do them on a simple rotation basis so that they all get something done on them each week. First up is Four Horses, everything that has been highlighted in orange has been completed since my last photo. I underestimated how much time it would take to do just one page even if I wasn't working on other projects I think it would be a challenge. Some areas just have one stitch of different colours so very time consuming, other areas are nice patches of just one colour and far quicker.
Then it's onto the bear sampler - the teddy almost has a head now which I am hoping will be complete for the next update along with an arm or even two. I kept making a mistake with the left collar of her dress - it's still not perfect but I can live with it and the pattern will line up again now - it's only one stitch that is wrong.
I'm really enjoying the Lizzie Kate months of the year and have ordered the threads so that I can do March and the missing thread for February. I think this will look great when all the months are stitched up and it is framed. As I had to re-do January it means I've really stitched two of them this month so pleased with this progress. They are weekend stitches if I'm lucky enough to get uninterupted stitching time.
Finally my mystery stitch - well a mystery to you although I will give you a clue as to what it might be. I found a lovely cross stitching sight called Yiotas where they have lots of kits and charts for sale. They also have lots of free charts that you can download and this is what I did for this one. I was amazed at how clearly the chart printed out and even more amazed that such a large chart could be obtained for free! Can you guess which of the free charts I'm working on? I have ordered a couple of charts from Yiotas which I will hopefully get to work on sometime in the future and later in the year I might even treat myself to one of their kits (as if I need anymore).
I am at last feeling much better - not sure what it was but thankfully the queasiness has now gone. Yesterday was incredibly busy at work and we didn't stop the whole day so the 10 1/2 hours just flew by. I've now got another two days off, today will be spent taking Mother food shopping and I'm not sure what tomorrow holds. I do have to make some birthday cards this week as it's Connor's 5th birthday at the weekend and DS1's later in the month.
Enjoy your day whatever you may be doing.
