Morning Bloggers !
You better grab a cup of tea and pull up a chair its a long one this morning.
Last week I left you starting off the rotation on the fishing project for my Dads birthday.
This is being stitched on 28ct white evenweave (I know rare for me to use it, its very bright ! lol) and I’m using Anchor threads on this one.
This is where I left it after its crazy start back in January.

This is where I left it after its 10 hour rotation. Now its not a great pic but I actually got most of the centre of the first page done and all to right of the green is really light shades of blue in half stitches some with two and some with one thread. Its a bit confusing sorting out the different symbols and remembering whether I’m doing half or full stitches and using one or two threads but I’m sure it will be worth it in the end.

After this I moved onto the Hogwarts Crest for James Birthday.
I’m still filling in a lot of black and have already used one skein on this so far lol.

I’m pleased with how far I’ve gotten on this in this rotation and have a little black left to do and then its colour fill in and thats the first page done.

Then with bil passing away and all going on I forgot about starting my sal with Linda over at Stitchin with my Furbabies on Thursday night but remembered this weekend which happened to be IHSW. I didn’t get much done on Saturday but was able to get some time on Sunday and so I stitched on our LHN The Old West piece and I promise Linda I will remember this Thursday.
This I’m stitching on 28ct mocha something evenweave. Now don’t ask me what I know its 28ct and its a mottled mocha colour and all I do know is I purchased it from willow fabrics but they don’t come with the colour of fabric on them so for someone like me thats a total disaster as I can’t ever remember. I am using DMC threads on this piece and when complete this chart will be up for a giveaway also so watch this space.
Here is where I left it after its crazy January start.

Nearly there now I promise lol.
I also did some crochet at the weekend and if you check out the post before this you’ll be able to see some pictures of it.
Now it was my best friend Lucie’s birthday during the week and she was going away for a holiday for her birthday and I did post her parcel before she left but it didn’t get there in time and in fact I forgot the chocolate and charts I’d bought her so in fact I only sent half her present lol… she’s used to me by now
Anyway she got it thankfully when she got back and it arrived all in one piece a miracle I’d say as I took the chance on sending her a framed picture. Its a Lizzie Kate piece and she’s crazy about Lizzie Kate and tea in fact lol.
I also made this cute little pincushion from the Primitive Hare it was a freebie on their blog.
I did remember to post on the rest of her present lol.
That is all I have for you this week on the stitching front this week, not bad considering all that was going on.
The rotation is back round again to the fishing picture so I will press on with that later today, first the dreaded shopping must be done as there wasn’t a chance before that and then pre school work with the small children and then some stitching time this evening I hope after meals, bedtimes and big peoples homeworks.
