"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).

Mermaid , cakes and cats.
First off , Happy 4th July to my US friends , hope you have a great celebration.
Yesterday saw me finally starting my next Heaven and Earth cross stitch design. I have chosen to do QS Rosita , and she will eventually look like this
This is where I am at the moment , after a couple of hours yesterday and about the same so far today . I think I have done roughly 600 stitches , hey , only another forty seven and a half thousand more to go. This is my biggest ever project so far in my stitching life , and I am a little scared of not completing it. But, with all the other charts now in my stash , I'd better !
At the moment, I'm leaving my chart next to the stitching area , so I don't have to look at that big expanse of empty fabric .
See, puny .
Before I sat down to stitch today , I was busy in the kitchen . The kids' school is having a Coronation Fayre tomorrow, and each class is doing a stall. My daughters' class is having a cake stall , so I volunteered to make some cakes for them .
Frosted cupcakes and chocolate crispy cakes. I do not know any kid that doesn't like crispy cakes,
My boy has been a little clingy lately, if I'm in any room for any length of time , he is there with me . He lay in the kitchen while I was cake making , and when I sat down to stitch , he decided I had to stay put for a while.
You can just see Finley laying on the carpet , but Fraser had to lie on me and hug my leg. Gotta love the boys .
