My Disney & Teddy RR Arrived home today

Had a lovely parcel from the postman this morning. My Disney 101 Dalmations advent calender & Tatty Ted Christmas RR arrived home this morning. They both look great :0) Both need a bit more work done to them but, I knew this in advance as one of the ladies in both RRs sadly had to drop out. Hopefully, I'll be able to get them both finished before christmas.

Also in the parcel was Nicolas One piece RR. This looks fantastic. The stitching quality is really excellent......I nearly posted a piccie of the back of the work aswell, its so neat!!

The last piccie is my very sad attempt of starting the Looney tunes zodiac RR.....a lot more work needed here I think!!!

Finished Susans Teddy RR

Ive just finished my square on Susans (Canada) Teddy RR. This is me finished stitching in this RR now & I'll be sending Susans Teddy, Disney & Gingerbread man RRs back home to her on Monday.

Finished another small piccie on my Millenium sampler (which is running over a week late....Oooops!).

Also, quickly stitching a little 'chatterbox' piccie for my neighbours birthday next week.

Im Back, its 1517 & Martin Luther Leads the protestant Revolt!!!

Ok, I havent totally lost the plot, Ive just started my Millenium sampler....better late than never. Its my 2nd ever evenweave piece & a type of design Ive never worked on before but, Im thoroughly enjoying it. The plan was to stitch one of the small dated pieces every weekday & one of the horizontal dividing lines every weekend but, as you can see, Im behind already!!

Its taking much longer than I thought so, Im going to have to keep putting it down & getting on with the RRs including, the pictured Looney Tunes zodiac piece that Im starting with the girls as a one piece for my daughters 21st birthday next year.

Took Janes (uk) calender RR with me on holiday but, didnt get the chance to do as much as Id hoped. Im now working on Taurus & Virgo at the same time on it.

Also, recieved a lovely British Isles Map chart from Sew & sew this morning to add to my ever increasing stash!!

Its Holiday Time....Yipee

Im off for a fantastic week of Sun, Sea, Sand & (hopefully) stitching so, thought Id do a quick update before I go.

Finished the writing on Susies (UK) Margaret Sherry RR & got that posted off.

Im now working on Virgo on Janes (UK) Calender/zodiac RR. I think this will be a stunner when its all completed. Having trouble stitching it though as Jane stitches the opposite way round to me....Oh well, it will be worth it :0)
