Pompejian Garden Part 6 HD

Woooohoooooo Part 6 finally finished, I should have finished this in early 2007 lol, but hey ho never mind, almost 6 yrs later and it is done.  Just 3 more parts to go then I can bead it at last.

I have been doing a 100 day challenge of 1 hours stitching a day to get me motivated back into stitching, I have 3/4 hours still to catch up on, but going well.  I am going to start part 10 tonight, once tea has been had.  I would like to get this finished before the end of May.  It would be nice to have a WIP Slayer Challange finish, by the end of May.

I am hoping to get St Petersburgh Finished after this one is done.  Thanks for all your previous comments and also thanks for giving me blog awards, I really appreciate it, you give me the inspiration to carry on stitching. 

Next month sees the start of the Araidne SAL, I was naughty and started early as you all know, roll on May I am missing stitching on her already, can't wait.

Ariadne Start and Pompeji Part 6

Ok ok I know I wasn't supposed to start Ariadne until the May SAL Start lol, but once I had sorted out the threads, I just couldn't resist starting her, here it is so far, she has been put away until next month.  I seriously need to concentrate on Pompejian Garden now.
Here is Pompejian Garden Part 6 so far, just the trees to go now, but it took me a day to finish and back stitch the fountain and bird area.  Am looking forward to getting some more done on it, I really enjoyed working on Pomp, so back to it once I am back from visiting family again.

I have also been very naughty and treated myself to the Mirabilia Christmas Limited Edition Trees, from 123 Stitch in the States can't wait for them to arrive,  I have done all the Holiday Fairies now.

Model Stitch HD from 14th March


Home Sweet Home
Stitched on 28ct Jobelan - The Deep
Designer - Polstitches

This is the lovely cross stitch I modelled for Polstitches, it was a dream to stitch and only took me a couple of weeks to do.  It was a lovely chart to stitch up, and just loved every minute of it.

I have been stitching on Pompejian Garden and almost finished Part 6, just the trees to go, will post a pic for all to see tomorrow.  I also started Ariadne as well as I just couldn't resist starting her once I had all the threads in a box ready for the start of the SAL on FB, will post a pic tomorrow of her so far too.
