Last blog of the year....Happy New Year Everyone :0)

Hello, Hope everyone had a great xmas & got loads of lovely stitchy pressies.

I was a good girl & santa got me the 'cut thru north pole house' Id been after :0)

Finished of Michaellas Seaside RR piece which has left me with a grand total of 17 completed projects this year....not that impressive as I managed 52 last year, Oh well!!

Have also started my new years resolution early which is to complete a huge piece of plain block stitching for Cinderellas skirt that I have been putting off for years...this is my absolute stitching nightmare as I hate block colouring. Theres about 8000 stitches on it & Im up to row 30!!!!! Wish me luck :0)

Happy New year, see you in 2009.

Finished Xmas card

Ive finished the christmas card for my mum, just need to get a card now.

Also, been stitching on the Seaside RR. Ive nearly finished that too apart from some yellow on the right hand side but, typically, its gone missing...Reckon my puppies have had it away!!!!

Oooops, I forgot to blog!!!!

Been so busy I forgot all about this!!...Heres the latest update.

Did a bit more work on my tiger then, put it down when Michaellas Seaside RR arrived & have started stitching a sandcastle piece on that for her.

Did a couple of little bits, an xmas mouse & Celtic cross & also finished off the last bit on the Rockin Robin RR for my sister.

Have now started stitching a quick xmas card for my Mum & dad which I hope to finish soon!!

Finished a few days ago!!!!

Got the tree sampler finished a few days ago....must have been the fastest finish ever for me, just didnt get around to doing the piccie!!!!

Have been trying to work out what I wanted to stitch since....finally decided to do a bit on my Tiger RR was stitched upto the bottom line, Im now stitching under that....only prob being, Ive lost the main chart & can only stitch the bit that was on the copies sent round with the original RR.

Oh well, it will turn up....somewhere!!!!

Ive got puppies :0)

Well, as you can see Ive hardly done any stitching this month....this has lots to do with 2 baby puppies Ive acquired which want constant cuddles....they sooooo cute though :0)

On the stitching front, I have joined a new RR with some of my facebook friends. Im doing Disney characters & am stitching Princess Jasmine from Alladdin at the moment on mine.

Looney Tunes Complete at last, Yipee (Oh & a quick update too!!)

Its a miracle, the looney tune RR for my daughters 21st actually got completed on time & she loved it :0) Mum, Dad & Karen got their bits done & Dad got it framed for me fast just in time for Kats Bday dinner. Thanks so much to all my family & CSRR friends who helped along the way with this one, it was well worth it. Ive stuck a piccie up of the Pisces bit aswell that I did (with Mum & Dad).

Back to the Fairies now. Have decided I do like variations but, have gone off of evenweve....have been stitching on far too much aida recently!! Will get it done but, just gonna do a little now & again so I dont get fed up with it.

Have started on my Indian maid last night. She is the 2nd half of a 2 piece chart....the 1st half was done in an RR a while back. Have already managed to lose the red thread Im stitching with at the mo...left it on the arm of the chair so, its obviously got stuck on someones clothes & gone for a walk round the house somewhere...I hate it when that happens!

I Been a good girl!!!

Well, I been stitching away on Mr Happy variagated threads turned up & I sooooo wanted to have a play with them!!!

Anyway, I was good & finished Mr Happy first...didnt want to decided variations aint as exciting as I remembered but, interesting....reckon I need to get back into the swing of things again!!!!!

Its a miracle....we have owls & Mr Strong!!!!!

Well, the puzzle was a challenge....took me 5 hours to stick it all back together!!!!

Chris is happy though. Not too bad a job considering.

Also managed to get Mr Strong finished & have just started Mr Happy (July) aswell.

One Heck of a Puzzle!!!

Have started the next piece on the Mr Men Calender, Mr Strong - August but, wont be stitching today as my son has bought me home a lovely puzzle to complete. He has been painting me a pot with 3 owls on top at his ceramic class (perfect for me to keep my threads in) but, he dropped it before he managed to get in the front door.......guess whos gonna have to spend all morning trying to glue it together again!!!

Finished my Looney parts at last!!!

Ive finally finished all I have to do on the Looney RR. Ive completed the backstitch around the edge & on one of the others that hadnt been completed. Ive also stitched most of Pisces so that my Mum & Dad can finish it off & put there names to it....theres a bit of cheating going on here!!

Now, at long last, Im stitching something I want to do....I love the Looney piece but, hate stitching with a deadline so, Im glad its done....Have started working on my Mr Men calender now & have just finished the backstitch on February that someone else left.

Looney Tunes, nearly there!!!!

Just about done now. My 2 lads have both down their bits. Connor stitched a bit on the Taurus (bugs on the bull) & Chris has done his bit on the Gemini one (Bugs & Daffy together).

Ive managed to get the back stitch done on both of these aswell & also the main centre circles have been completed too.

Now, just need to help Mum & Dad along a bit on the one that they are stitching (Pisces/ Sylvester) for Kat & complete the outside ring backstitch.....Oh yes, & Karen (Aunty) has got to get her bit done too....Phew......23 days & counting down!!!!!
