1st Goal Achieved
Yes I have achieved my first goal of the year, but it is a bit of a cheat as it was just to buy a chart.   Chinese Garden Mandala by Chataleine Designs.  It's a beautiful design with lots of specialty stitches.  I've also given in and bought fabric, thread ...

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to everybody.  I hope 2016 is good to you all and you get lots of stitching time and progress. I've been thinking through my plans for the year, I don't want to be too ambitious as I would actually like to achieve some of them, so here is wha...

Something New
As if I haven't got enough big pieces on the go I've decided to start another one!  Why is that those new starts are so magical?  There's something addictive and exciting about puting the needle through the fabric for the first time and placing those first ...

Late Tutle Trot (March)
Celtic Summer has gone off to be frame, yipee,  Can't wait to get her back and put her up with Celtic Winter.  Two down, two to go.  Don't hold your breath though, it's taken so long to do Celtic Summer that the other two won't be here any time soon! Howeve...

Finish Number 2
Woo Hoo!  I've done it.  I've finished Celtic Summer.  This has been a ridiculously long journey.  The first stitch went in in October 2009 so it's taken me just over 4 years!!!  I know it's a big project but that is a little bit crazy, it just goes to show...

Dragonfly Page Finish
In my last post I promised a picture of Dragonfly with page 12 finished.  However, this was a lie, it's actually page 15 finish - Whoopie!!!!  Mind you that's out of 20 pages not 18 so although I couldn't count yesterday I've still got just as much to do as...

TUSAL Update
Well it certainly seems to have been a productive month for stitching for me and the ORT jar has the evidence to prove it. I've really got into the flow of Dragonfly at the moment which is great as it's relatively close to a finish.  I've nearly finished pa...
