"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).

Butterflies and snails (not in the garden).

After finishing Hello Kitty , I needed a small project again, but instead of looking for a new chart I decided I needed to get some of those old WIP's out of the way . I aim to have no old WIP's or UFO's hanging around after this year, hmmm.
 Anyway, it's about time I got my sons' snails finished , so I have been working on that .
 So far , I've done the leaves on the top right hand side and the lower branch. It shouldn't take too long to be finished, but I have been a little distracted with Butterflies.
I have got back into it big time. A couple of afternoons last week and some time yesterday have left me here. Some more green added and lots of the darker outlines . My plan is to do all of the dark blue and then fill in the other brighter colours. I am hoping that when all the blocks are done , I will be so close to a finish that I won't mind doing all the confetti and annoying odd stitches ,lol. Yes, that is the bottom of the chart .
 I am loving it again , and want to just pick it up now , but alas, I have to enter the pigsty of my daughters' bedroom and clean and tidy, which I am expecting to take all day , so maybe tomorrow.

 Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath.

All coming along beautifully Cath and hope your daughter keeps it tidy now. My daughter has a problem with her 15 year old daughter and it is forever a bone on contention between them. Mind you I remember when wet towels left on the bed were the bane of my life. One day all too soon you turn round and they have their own children doing the same thing. Take care sweetie.
