A finish and some stash

I've been a busy little bee over the last few days and finished my square for LQUK yesterday .
 Here it is
I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I bought the kit a while ago as it was really cheap , but had to use bigger fabric for this square . Luckily it lists the DMC colours , so I could stitch it again if I want to as some point.

 Well, I have jumped on the HAED band waggon . Recently they had a big sale which ended with 50% off ,and as I had some birthday money waiting to be spent , I put in a rather large order (for me anyway ,lol).

 This one will be my first start, and soon as I am itching to get on to it. But, I will make some progress on at least one WIP first .
  Love this little guy , and just had to have him .
  This has been on my wish list for a while , so cute .
  Love the colours on this one , this will probably be my second start for me/my daughter if and when she sees it ,lol.
  This will be started early next year. My oldest niece turns 21 next October. I was going to stitch "Fragile" for her , and change the colour , but then I saw this . It is called "The Key" and is perfect for her .
  Bought this one with my daughter in mind .
  This one is for me .
  Then , when I saw the 25% off sale for Black Friday week , I decided to splurge a little more and bought these two lovely charts .
  Again , I love the colours in both .
 So, you will hopefully see one or two or more of these next year. They will be part of my "Big Project Year".
 I have more on my list to do next year , but need to finalise the to do list and a rough time line , then I will share more .
 Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath

Very cute finish!

HAED has many designs that I want to purchase. If you saw my wish list you would wonder what is keeping me from getting started, lol! I think I am still a bit intimidated.
