"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).

Old, new and in between

Welcome to my new followers, hope you enjoy your visits here. Please feel free to comment and if you have a blog ,let me know so I can pop over.

 Also , a big thanks to everyone who went over to Marshas' blog. She now has well over 100 followers. so I'm really pleased for her.
 In light of this though , I am going to add a new little bit to my blog . Over on the sidebar a new section will appear called "Pimp your blog". Every week (or there abouts) I will list a new blog for you to check out , it may be a new one , or an old one with fewer followers or even a well known one with lovely eye candy , we will see ,lol.

 Anyway , on to stitchy stuff. when I finished Butterflies , I wasn't quite ready to start my next HAED straight away. I needed to make a cover for my scroll frame so I don't end up with grubby stripes across the fabric, I did still want to stitch though , so I got out my old WIPs I guess they should be called UFOs now. I stitched a motif on Christmas Recipe , just need to do the back stitch on it .
 I really want to get this one and my little owls finished this year , so I have kind of promised myself to stitch on them at least once a week , ahem , not quite managed it this week yet ,as I have just wanted to stitch on Rosita , and this is where I am now .
 I do love seeing the squares coloured in on the chart .
  And now for the new . Heaven and Earth are running a reward programme , so I sent in pics of Butterflies and got a free chart . I chose QS Sunny , as I have liked this one since seeing it on someone elses' blog ages ago .

Not sure when she will get stitched, but she is mine , all mine.

Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath

YAY for another chart in your stash. There is no such thing as enough of that!
Your stitching is very nice! I need to discipline myself to sticking with a schedule on my stitching. I'm not very good at it though. Wish there was an easier way, like growing another set of arms, or creating a clone!
