28 Days later .

Time for a stitching update methinks .

 This little guy
 Now looks like this .
 Yep , he's all done , completed on the 24th . It's a good job I love him , as I've got to stitch him again , and maybe again after that ,lol. My son has decided that he wants his quilt to be dogs , and my daughter kind of likes it too .

 The HAED challenge is progressing . From this :
 To this .
 Actually , posting this has really helped me see how much I've done . It really seems to be slow going, but there are lots of scattered stitches . I'm leaving the big blocks til the end . Also , I'm only working on it for three or four days a week. Thursdays are usually busy with other stuff as it's hubbys' day off , and weekends are filled with noise , homework and kids stuff . I am still hopeful of finishing by the original date of 3rd March , even though we now have to April to complete the challenge.

  Forgot to show my new stash last time , so here it is .
 Fabric and threads to stitch Promise of Spring , and threads for Pumpkin Patch Inn.
 And , some more white aida and a refill of some DMC I was getting a little low on .  I am lucky to have plenty of thread ,so seldom run out of any , though with HAEDs I tend to kit up fully with new skeins , then whatever is left goes into the general pot .
 My ort jar has a lot of neutral colours at the moment , so I need to stitch something bright to jazz it up a bit . Now my LQ square is done and I have no more sign ups at the moment , I've gone back to my carry over project from last year , but I'll show pics of that next time .

 Thanks for dropping by .
