    Bits and bobs.

    I couldn’t concentrate on one thing so did a couple of little bits on each.

    I needed that.

    After not getting much stitching in for almost three months, I really needed  a stitching break. I managed to ignore most of the screaming banshee”s and got a good bit done:

    2 HDs and an almost-start!

    Posted by Stargazer on April 20, 2009

    Well, I didn’t get quite as much done this weekend as I wanted to, since my son decided it would be a good time to want to swap his computer desk with mine – not such a major task for most people, but for us it was a bit of a marathon. I hadn’t realised just how much stuff (mostly stash actually) I’d got on my desk! It took about 8 hours of Saturday/Sunday to complete so my valuable stitching time was seriously depleted.

    Nevertheless, I did manage to finish both numbers 7 and 8 of the EMS Advent Calendar which I am very pleased about as now I am all caught up with that ready for next month’s two numbers.

    All I managed to get done on the lighthouses project was half the whipping on the edge of the fabric so there’s nothing to show you on that one. Maybe next month there’ll be some progress on it then again I might have found another project to tackle by then! Did I ever mention I’m a serial starter! 😀

    Seems like…

    …it’s caught us all out this month. I don’t know where the time goes!

    This month I’ve raked out a project that I started several years ago. It’s the Roger W. Reinardy kit of lighthouses. My Mum bought me this kit about 6 years ago, I started it but only got one lighthouse done before putting it aside, inevitably to start something else! When I finally found the kit again, the fabric was yellow in places so I gave it a wash in the machine but unfortunately it didn’t get rid of the stain (which I have no idea at all what it was…) So now I’ve decided to stitch it on 16ct Aida and have to hope that I have enough thread left to complete it. If not, I’ll have to pick undone the part I’d already done before.

    But prior to that, I have to finish EMS Advent Calendar number 8. I’m almost caught up and it should be finished today, since I started it in the wee small hours of this morning! Really must learn what sleep is…

    Hope everyone who takes part this weekend makes good progress. Looking forward to seeing some pictures! 😀
