New start tomorrow for me and my sister

Here is the update of my wedding sampler as promised

I have only 500 stitches to do to finish page two of Mermaid, which I am supposed to put away and start on Paradisal Bird tomorrow for the month.

On another note my sister is expecting her first baby tomorrow so I am going to be a aunt!

Watch her have it when I am away camping this weekend

Well this is a first!

Well I actually stuck to the plan and did dome stitching on the wedding sampler, not sure if you actually tell or not I will have to check last piccie, but at least I did it.
Will post a picture when batteries for the camera have charged up.

Stitching promise to myself

Well the wedding sampler has been gathering dust and is fast becoming a UFO. So thursday night is sampler night. One night a week I will stitch on it and update on Friday.
Don't know how long it will last as I am itching to finish page two of Mermaid but I'm going to try...... Don't hold your breath though

OK here are the bits of stitching that i have done, not much as my eldest has been driving me insane, but better than nothing.

half way through page two of Mermaid

Not much done on Paradisal Bird Also By Alena Lazareva

wedding Sampler not stitched on it for ages, and i know i should but not enjoying being married at the moment ( need i say more)

This is the progress i did for the HAED SAL SK, its stitched on 20ct 2X1 and i hated it i dont  know if its because i am now used to stitching on 25ct but it was bumpy and uneven so for the THIRD time i have restarted it, yes i know i am mad as i had nearly finished but  i didnt like it

This time i have started it on 28ct 2x1 tent stitch, which i love because this is one nights stitching but i dont like the gaps it leaves i think i need to try tenting on 32ct instead will have to find a bit on eBay as local shop doesnt stock it

Guess who's back, back not slim shady

OK here I am back online, no laptop made browsing the internet at Sisters, or using my ipod which is behaves like a man, plays up when you want it for something.

I have been stitching finished my first page of HAED's Mermaid, still on page two, finished the first part of the Mermaid Story Keep SAL too, but didn't like how it had turned out so i have started that one again.

The wedding Sampler well lets say it hasn't been out for a while, as i am enjoying stitching the HEAD's, that and the fact that hubby is annoying me and stitching a wedding sampler is something i am not wanting to do at the moment, 20 years and he still finds ways of winding me up.

So this post is a picture free post as i have just popped back to make tea, then off out again, as i am lambing and I haven't had time to take any photos, i was going to take my stitching with me, as sometimes the lambs like to take their time, but hubby says no i can muck out...lovely
