"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).

No , thankfully we have not been blessed with more of the white stuff , I have been busy working on my Christmas Recipe.
I have had a couple of days of serious stitchers' butt , one day each of the last couple of weekends , and boy did I enjoy it .
This is what it looked like after last Saturdays efforts :
And here is how it looks after this past weekend
The bits of pink paper are covering up my kids' names . I decided to personalise it with all our names , so have added some extra boxes.
I'm really enjoying working on it again ,and looking forward to a finish .
This is my start on my proper square for the fund raising quilt. It's a Greek couple dancing and as we went to Greece for our honeymoon , I just had to stitch it . There are lots of squares from around the world , so I'm sure the quilt will be lovely when it's finished .Still no stash from Thread Bear . I'll leave it a few more days then get in touch to see if their order has arrived yet .
After a lot of deliberating , I've decided not to start my Dads' sampler yet . I just can't cope with having too many projects on the go at once , I can't decide which to work on so end up doing none of them , lol . Still , hopefully I'll have another finish soon so I feel more able to get on with it .
I'm still gobsmacked at the number of comments on Dandy Dreams , so a big Thank you again to everyone .
I'm on 97 followers now , so only three more to go and I'll have a giveaway .
Thanks for dropping by ,

Your Christmas Recipe looks great and I think personalizing it is a wonderful idea. It gives the piece more meaning :)

I like the idea of a quilt using stitched squares representing different countries and look forward to seeing your dancing Greek couple.
