Yes my Darcy photostitch finally looks like it's getting somewhere. Since I stitched part of her eye she just seems to have taken on a life of her own. As I'm sat at my frame stitching I don't see the progress as much but standing back and looking I can't believe how fast she's now coming along. OK I'm not working on her as much as I should as I keep getting sidetracked but Thursday mornings are still reserved just for her as well as a couple of evenings a week. This is my progress so far taken Friday night.
I've also been working on my Beau Bands SAL as well. For those who don't know this is designed by Abi on my Friendly Stitchers yahoo group. I'm nearly at the end of Part 2 and have Part 3 all printed out ready to go. My favourite stitch on part 2 has to be the knit stitch, fiddly but looks wonderful.
Other stitching I can't show yet as it was part of an exchange and I don't know if it's been received yet. I've also been working on my gift SAL which is finally looking like I can see the end. 123 Stitch has had a sale on so I couldn't resist ordering a couple of the Sue Hillis pirate designs.
Obviously I also had to order the fabric to stitch one of them and some Wichelt Lambswool fabric to stitch another chart I have to make the post to the UK worth it.....gotta love the sales :-)
I've finally remembered to take a photo of my TUSAL vase. When I first started this I kept forgetting to put my orts in as I'm so used to just throwing them away when I put my stitching away...nearly got the hang of it now so it's rare I forget.
My reading challenge is doing well, I've got 3 of the Monica Ferris stitching mysteries sat at the side of my bed...thank you Sheffield Libraries! Still waiting for my next installment of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, think I may have to buy this book as I've been on hold at the library for months now! Our DS1 Peter is also doing the reading challenge and is doing better than I am....now ok his books are a lot smaller but he's only 5 and it takes him a while to read a small book. We've been up to the library this morning and got him another 3 books.....I pick harder books for him to read than school gives him! He loves reading so I'm encouraging it like mad.
