I have been stitching though, regular visitors will have seen the update on my ATW a couple of weeks ago. As we're now waiting for the next part I've been working on my CITA, here's how she stands at the minute..
My HAED "Cruising the Information Highway" by Randall Spangler looks like this after May's stitching..
As I seem to be working on quite large projects now I need a "finish" to give me a boost. Years ago when I went to the Harrogate stitching show with the Yahoo Group Friendly Stitchers (link in sidebar) I picked up some wonderful thread by Oliver Twists with the intention of doing a blackwork butterfly from a magazine. Years later and I finally started to stitch it, here's how it looks after working on it at least an hour a day..
The design is from Mary Hickmott's New Stitches issue 197. If you wish to purchase just this chart to stitch it as well just click on Mary's name and it will take you straight to it.
Finally no monthly update would be complete without a photo or 2 of what my lot have been up to. These are taken during the kids half term holiday.
