An Update!

Well, I have been very busy stitching again, so busy in fact that I have forgotton to blog for nearly two weeks. That's OK, because I plan to catch up with all of that this coming week.

I have progressed as far as I can now with Black Willow Farm. I have to wait for the remaining threads that I have ordered from the US to come in. I really love working with Thread Gatherer Silk, especially on 40ct linen. I think that my future CHS designs will definitely be completed with silks on 40ct.

My squares for Fair & Square have been completed and I just need to post them out. I really enjoyed stitching these for Kathy, lets just hope she loves them as much as I do.

I have also completed my February square for the 12 Blessings of Christmas. I have all of the charts for this project and I am just waiting on some of the WDW threads to come in that I ordered on the weekend. I completed a little more of the border, but need those missing threads to be able to continue any more.

The Red Thread SAL has not progressed very far, other than I have some of the charts and have ordered the GAST and WDW threads for the project. I still need the border design, the border snapper pack and the fabric. I will hopefully have the fabric by the end of next weekend, so I should be able to make a start.

Next, here is a picture of the huge stash of LHN designs that I recently purchased. I have started to tack out the stitching areas and have started on the borders and other stitching. I love all the colours, they are all shades of browns and greens. Very earthy and fits in with the nature theme perfectly.

I have missed stitching on my Angel of Winter this week, but I will definitely make up for it next week by spending an extra day on her. There are only so many hours in a day and all those boring chores to do as well.
