I have had a HD called Cat Lessons for People, will post a pic one day, but sorry I am not in the mood for blogging or stitching at the moment. I will come back to it one day, but when I don't know, please be patient and I will keep you all updated soon

Here is Fuchsia Fae all finished. I started her on Friday last week and finally got her finished today, when I got home from a few days away. Had to add the last colour at home here today, as I forgot to take the colour with me, what a dope I was lol. She looks fab and I am very happy with my Fabby choice too. I am now working on Robin Red Breast.
For those asking about Colours of the Outback, Mel is selling on Facebook only at the moment.

Hubby has been on Holiday for a week and has one more to go, so we have been out and about loads, and have finally finished school clothes and shoe shopping, after having to go and change the trousers for Mark as I had bought the wrong colour grrrrrr. I am going to be away from Sunday thro til Thurs, as we are going up to hubby's Mums for a few days, then home and get them ready for starting their new Schools on the 5th and 6th Sept.
Guy is of to a local School starting on Monday the 5th and Mark is going Private on the 6th, typical when you want them to go to the same School they choose to go to diff schools lol. Never mind it will do them good not to be with each other 24/7.
Thanks for all your wonderful comments on Sabrina, I had hoped to get her finished this month, but it will have to be next month, once this lot are back to School and Work.
I have some new Stash arriving soon from Aus and US, can't wait will show pics one they arrive.
Sunday, 14 August 2011
Thanks for all you previous comments, they sure keep me going. I am hoping to have her finished by the end of the month or sometime in September, then I shall be onto Pompejian Garden.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on Bluebell she was a dream to stitch. I only have 10 of my Challenge pieces left to get done by the end of the year, but that could well be a feat and a half lol.
I had to remove a couple, one has to be restarted and QS Fragile Heart has gone away for a while, for some reason I just cannot get my head around HAEDs, and struggle after making a good start. Maybe one day I will get one done, but not just yet. I guess it doesn't help with having about 90 colours in the majority of them.

Yesterday I started working on one of my challenge pieces, called Dog Lessons for People and I will post a pic soon. I have done the top 2 rows so far, and will be cracking on with it for a week. As for Pompejian Garden I am gonna add it to the weekly rota, I was losing my stitchy mojo after a couple of weeks of solid stitching, so if I crack on with this rota all of these should get finished and new ones added as and when. I will not have any new starts unless they are for birthdays or other pressies.
This is my Rota and July Goals

Once Part 5 has been done, I only have parts 7 and 9 to go on the sides. Then start at the top to do Parts 4,5,6, 10, 11 and 12. Thanks for all your encouraging comments, they keep me going, I must finish, I must lol. The aim is to get all the stitching done by the end of the month, and then hopefully it shouldn't take me long to do the beadng.

Here is my Pompejian Garden update. it has taking me almost a week to get this far. I started the left side bottom section which are parts 10 to 12. I am currently working on part 11, which is the border that goes all the way round. Once I have done this section, I shall then start the right bottom side. I am loving this piece.
I am just debating whether, to bead as I go along or wait til the end. I will prob wait til the end, then it won't get all bobbly underneath when they have been on for a few weeks. I am going to try, and get this piece finished by the end of May. I think April will be to short a time to get it done, but who knows lol.
Thanks for all your wonderful comments on Neuschwanstein Castle, it was a dream to stitch and it will be framed soon, I want it on my wall by my stitching area. I will add another pic of Pompeji next Friday. I am going to try and post once a week ever Friday so that you can see the changes in Pomp as I go along.

John Clayton - Heritage
Stitched on 28ct Evenweave
Here is my 3rd HD, I finished this one today about 1:15 pm. I have really loved stitching this piece. I also love the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in which this Castle appeared. I have loved this Castle ever since I was a child and here it is stitched up ready for framing and hanging in my lounge.
I am going to crack on with Pompejian Garden now, I am about to put it on a frame, so fingers crossed I can get on with it, without putting it off all the time. It has been on the go for a long time now, so time to get it finsihed.
Thanks for all the lovely comments on Miss New Year, I just loved working on her.

Yesterday I started on Day 2 of the Challenge, that I started back in January called Neuschwanstein Castle, will add an updated pic soon. I now have 33 WIPs in total (well 32 now that one is finished) and I will try and get as many of them as I can finished this year. I know I won't get them all done, but I will have fun trying for sure lol.
Marilyn, thank you very much for your hospitallity at the weekend it was great seeing you, Tessa (Westie) and Jacqui. I had a lovely time and looking forward to seeing you at Nuneaton in March. Things sure have been busy around here this last month. I was ill at the begining fo the year, and I phoned the Golden Retriever Rescue Lady, who we are registered with, to have a rescue Dog. When we were chatting she said they haven't had anytime dogs/bitches in over a year, and we would be best going down the puppy route. So we are now not just looking at Golden Retrievers, but we are also considering Bernese Mountain Dogs and Siberian Huskys as we love all 3 breeds. But I expect the GR will win lol.
I have been going out dog walking with a friend who has a Blue Marl Sheep Dog and looks after a friend's GR called George who is gorgeous, so I get to hold his lead when we go out for our weekly walks. He is a great dog, he listens to me and does as I ask which is great. He is very vocal when I get there says hello, and doesn't stop talking to me til, we get out of the house rofl.
So since we have said we will get a pupy, I have been sorting this house out. Everything that should NOT be on the floor is being moved like the kids lego, my stitching and anything else that needs to be put away, the rest will stay, as he/she will have to learn not to chew etc. So far the Kitchen has been done and the Utility room and Hallway is almost done, just the Lounge and Dining Room to do now, then upstairs to tackle.
We won't be getting or looking for a puppy until my nuneaton trip has been and gone, as we will need to meet mum and the pup/pups. I have said I will do the training, so less trips for me for a while, but I do have friends that have said I can visit and take the dog with me, so it won't be too bad hopefully. Will keep you all posted. WOW I think this is the longest message I have put on here in a long time lol. I hope I haven't bored you all to death rofl.
Have a great day everyone. Tomorrow is TUSAL day so I will take a piccy later and post it tomorrow, with a WIP update of Neuschwanstein Castle.
Sunday, 9 January 2011
Sorry for the delay, but here is the first TUSAL piccy, the Jar was empty when I started. I thought I would oin in to make sure I keep stitching, and to get my mojo back, hopefully doing this and the 15 new starts challenge and getting them all finished by the end of the year may help me rofl.
