"If you can count the number of projects you have going , you need to begin another, so you have a varied range of complexity from the very simple 'mind-less' ones to those that demand undivided attention." (Laura Early).

The dandelions are growing ...

Slowly , lol .
I haven't had as much time to stitch as I would have liked this week , with one thing and another , but I am enjoying working on Dandy Dreams again . Here's a quick pic of the progress :

It looks a bit dark as it's very grey , foggy and yucky here today .

I've also done a couple of charity squares . These butterflies are for a personal quilt for Anna , one of the girls in Rachels' Place . I loved the chart for the rainbow one , but the light blue seems a bit bland . I think I'd have preferred a brighter shade really .Love the little owls .

And , remember this ? Well , I was really pleased and excited when I got a message from the designer herself. Rhona Norrie has just started her own blog , so please visit here to say hello and give her a nice blogger welcome (I'm sure a few new followers would be appreciated too ;-D ) . I have to say , it's given me a renewed enthusiasm for carrying on with this piece , so I really want to get cracking on Dandy Dreams so I can restart this and start my Dads' pic.

Thank you everyone for the comments on my last post . I appreciate each and every one of the 17 comments , just got to keep aiming for more , lol . And thank you to my new followers too , I'm up to 85 , woo hoo . When I hit 100 , I'm planning a giveaway , not sure what yet , but I do have a few ideas , so spread the word !

Thanks for dropping by ,

Those little owls are adorable! Dandy Dreams is coming along so nicely. I finally got the linen I needed for mine - now I just need to finish up a few things in the project queue so I can start it.
