I have done a little bit of stitching but my room light is terrible for stitching at night really need to make sure our next house has better lighting. So really can only stitch on 28 ct 1 x 1 during the day. Can you believe this is supposed to be a Christmas tree?

Happy Stitching

Needle over Mind

I have not picked up a needle for weeks now as I have really no interest in anything at the moment, the whole homeless situation has not got any better but worse and even when we had the house fire and had nothing left i still didn't feel like this. My husband even bought me a chart to cheer me up.
The doctor wants to put me on some meds but i hate taking mediation unless i am really in pain ( or have toothache), so to try and pull myself together again i am picking up my needle and seeing if the power of the needle is mightier than the pill...    or something along those lines couldn't think of any thing funnier to say.

Hope i have some stitching to show on Tuesday

Shopping Spree revealed and a few progress pictures

Well I made a start on the baby sampler, as i thought the christening was in a few weeks, but that's been put on hold so there is no rush now, so i will work on it once a month, so i am classing this as Novembers work.

I can also reveal what i bought on my shopping spree ( without even leaving the house)

Yes it is a Mirabilia's  Royal Holiday and Lizzie Kate's Christmas Rules, in the kit for Royal Holiday i got Linen fabric, which to be honest i hate stitching on, so i have ordered some from Silkweaver, I am hoping that it wont take too long to come, as i cant wait to get started on her, but i did start on Lizzie kate's Christmas Rules.

Its stitched on 28ct Ivory Jazlyn, which i love stitching on, definitely my fabric now i want to stitch on.

I have also stitched some more of DOTF, did a few days on it. You can actually see some of the antique white now, the blue is next to it.
Here is a quick update of my mermmie, still not got page 3 finished but i am stitching page four too, i have a pile or ironing that needs to be done, but i cant put her down!

And finally here is what i bought from HAED....

By Randal Spangler, Home is Where The Magic Is... a meer 48 pages of charts, yes this is one serious long term project, and then i bought this...

Vixie by Hannah Lynn. I bought both in colour chart format and i love them, now when they will get started on i have no idea.
