Week 27

Thank you for your comments and emails I really appreciate them! Sorry I haven't been visiting your blogs this week but there are not enough hours in a day at present to fit everything in. I have undertaken a couple of large projects for both the business and home so when I finish work for the day I am only fit to stitch for a short time before bed. I will catch up with everyone as soon as possible.

I am keeping to my stitching rotation, but because of the above I am not getting a lot done on each project. This week I have been working on L&L's 'The Quiltmaker':
The Quiltmaker

If you click on the image it will take you to see what it should look like when finished. I would have got more done on this if my scanner and PC were friends with each other. I always get an enlarged working copy of the chart so I can see it easily and also mark off where I am going or finished. It took a lot longer to sort out than it should have, but at least I have it now, so there should be more progress when stitching on this in the future.

I also managed to finish Waxing Moon's 'Hitchin' a Ride':
Hitchin' A Ride

I altered the snowflakes and missed out the backstitching in the sky. I love this design; I think it is such a fun one for Christmas!

Yesterday evening I worked on HAED's 'QS Believe':

Again if you click on the image it will take you to see what it should look like when finished. It was just blocks of colour, so easy to stitch, just what I needed yesterday.

Tonight I hope to bring out HAED's Tomboy for a turn.

Hope things settle down for you soon, Jo!

I totally understand where you're coming from with the electrics - my vcr and V+ box don't like each other either, sigh ...

I love looking at your stitching, you're such an inspiration. I have a santa chart quite similar to that called "Santa at the Seashore" check it out, I'm sure you'll love it!

Jennifer said...

Congrats on the finish! Everything is looking great. I love that you calculate your progress. Hope life settles down soon!

Even though you think you've not done much stitching, it seems a lot to me lol.

Hope you have a quieter week next week.

Love your Waxing Moon finish - so cute! That snowman hitching a ride is so funny. I've never seen this design before. I might have to do this one myself for Riley's room at Christmas.

Love your xmas design, makes me think of the film Jack Frost for some reason lol.
And your HAED QS Believe is gorgeous, those colours are so pretty.
