Change of Plans

I was going to start Game Board Sampler by Drawn Thread, but when I checked the fabric that I had put aside for it, it was WAY too small (about 10cm ). So I had to re-think my next start. I went through what I have kitted up and decided on Shepherd's Bush Reed's Stocking. I have five of SB'S stocking charts as I would like to do one for each of us eventually. This one will be for DH, and when I told him he said "Thats nice." What else could you expect from a man.

I have started the stocking and will continue with it until Sunday night and I'll show a progress photo at this stage. Then I will stitch on one of my other WIPS for a week, and so on.

Well it is time that I got off this computer so that I can make a start on our dinner. Bye for now.

Celtic Spring -Finished

The beading seemed to take forever on this, but I did enjoy stitching it. I have Celtics Winter, Summer and Autumn in my stash to do one day. Now what to start?

I started And A Forest Grew a little while ago, but will start something else, possibly Drawn Threads Game Board Sampler.

I am trying to think up a rotation so that some of my neglected WIPS get some attention. For now I think that I will work on one piece for a week, and then change to something else. I will establish an order so that everything gets a turn. Perhaps I will do them alphabetically so that I can keep track of which project is next by the WIP list on the side of my blog page.

My First Post

I have been fiddling around with this template for a few days now, still lots of work to do though.
This blog will be mainly about my stitching, with snippets about my family and other goings on. I hope that you enjoy sharing in this journey with me.
