"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).

Marching on .

Well , the year is flying by already . February was not a fantastic month as we had a big whoops with the car and had to get a new one. not an accident before anyone starts worrying , just lack of knowledge and circumstances leading to the head gasket blowing, not good.
 Anyway , with all the stress etc, I didn't get a whole load of stitching done , but I have done some.
I was getting disheartened with my HAED , with all the confetti stitches it felt like I was going nowhere fast so I decided to do some block stitching , and it really made a difference.
 I have done more random and confetti stitches , and am back to feeling like I've made no progress ,lol. After a couple of hours today I got really annoyed at finding yet another stitch that I'd missed so put it away .
 My last lot of LQ squares have been posted out , but I have done this one since. This is for a back-filled quilt, where all the squares are taken from stock other than the label. This has been sent directly to the person who is making the quilt up .
I found myself wanting to start two new things , but only have one spare frame , so debating between buying another one , trying to make one and just buy the clips, or get a grip and cut down on my WIPS ,lol.
 Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath

Your HAED is looking great though! Hang in there! I have yet to start mine, I think I need to finish some smaller things first.
