"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).

Time Flies

Whether you're having fun or not ,lol .

 I can't believe that it has been a month since my last post. One of those times with not a lot to say I guess.
I have been stitching , but not a lot . Time has seemed to have been in short supply lately.

 I have made a little progress on Rosita , wish it was more , but there you go .
 The only other project I have been working on is this .
It is a square for LQUK, but as the chart is fairly large , it is on 16ct aida instead of the usual 14ct , and it is taking an age to get done . I am thinking about another 1500 stitches then all the back stitch. Hopefully this week or next will see it finished so I can get on to other things.

 I have also been taking some time to try and organise my stash. At the moment this involves lots of looking through old magazines and removing usable charts .Hopefully this will create more space to enable me to organise everything else , but it all takes time.
 I also got very engrossed in a set of books ,so didn't stitch for over a week while I ploughed through them ,lol.

 Well, that's all for now , the kids are on Easter holiday from school , so a second visit to the library this afternoon , for Easter craft. Swimming lesson and ice skating party tomorrow, who knows what Sunday will bring.

 A quick aside , Thread Bear did indeed refund the postage from my order .

 Thanks for dropping by ,
 Take care ,
 Cath x

Lovely to see a post from you Cath, I hope you and your family are well. You've made brilliant progress on both your projects and I'm glad to see the postage issue has been resolved. Hope you enjoy a wonderful Easter break.
Best wishes.

Lovely progress: some little girl is going to love the square for the quilt. So pleased Thread Bear has refunded you. It is so annoying that someone somewhere isnt doing their job properly and that takes time out of our busy lives to have to sort out. Enjoy your Easter break!

So pleased you got your cash back. A lovely square for the quilt.

Good news about the refund Cath, I no longer shop at TB as they do not seem as good since new owners. Lovely stitching and I agree where are the months going.
Take care and enjoy your Easter.

Great stitching on your projects, Cath. I know the times when stitching has to stay back behind reading, mostly in the summer when i can sit on the terrace a book in hand and read for hours. Then I don't spend a single thought about stitching, lol.
