A bit of this and that

Hello, a long time with no blogging again for me!  Hope you are all well.

I have done quite a bit of stitching the last week but it does not feel like it!  I think since my main projects are all big pieces it seems like I have not done much with not having any finishes, so I am cracking on with Gone Fishing today and the rest of the week to see if I can get this one finished and off my pile!  I did quite a bit last night.

Gone Fishing as at 6th March 2012
I worked the weekend on my Charlie Bear SAL and I am delighted at my progress.  I plan to stitch a few more letters then do some back stitching.  Steph stephs blog has already back stitched some of hers and it is looking fantastic .... oh and go to her blog to see her news!!  Cant wait to add detail to mine now.

Next I would like to show off my Fairy Grandmother!  Her wing is very slow going and lots of colour changes every few minutes so I have decided to make progress on her body and face for now and do the wings as I go along!  She is looking beautiful I will admit and the photo does not do her justice at all.

To add to the mix of my stitching I have been asked to do a baby sampler for my friend niece who is expecting her baby in about 8 weeks time.  So the Sampler kit is being posted to me today so this will be my main project for the next few weeks.  Also I am going to be doing some stitching for my daughters Nursery. Then ... I found out a friend of mine is expecting so hey why not add a bit more stitching to my growing list lol!  I cant wait!  So I think I will have to adjust my target times and add to my to-do list!  With all this stitching being asked for I think I could start up my own little business :-)  Could not think of a nicer job!

Happy stitching to you all
