I'm in love...

...with Mr Bones by SamSarah. I've been looking (somewhat half heartedly - or at least not very seriously) for a skeleton (that I liked, I am quite fussy) to cross stitch for years now. HOW DID I MISS THIS DESIGN FROM 2008???? I've just been over to Arthemise's blog, where I saw Mr Bones all stitched up (there is a picture in THIS post). He is truly awesome. Sadly I cannot find the magazine for sale. Pondering if it's worth paying for the Just Cross Stitch Collection 2001 to 2010 CD / DVD.... It's only $50... Hmmm, that might be a bit much to pay for a single little skeleton.

Feeling sleepy...

I've woken up feeling really sleepy. Which may be apt given one of my current projects - night by Maria von Sharrenberg. This is my Nottingham piece (which means I don't stitch on her very often), and it recently travelled to my parents house and got some love there. 

I'm still working on Gaelic banner - I've just got the BS on the griffin to go - there's a happy dance due very, very soon!

Happy stitching folks x

Happy New Year!!!

Wow, I really have fallen out of the habit of blogging - I hope I still have some followers!

Back in October I promised to share a photo of Eeyore's problem - well here it is:

Since then I have been working on Gaelic Banner - I started the BS before Christmas. I took this photo on the 2nd Jan, but have done a bit more BS since - I have 2 pages of BS to go - this will be my first HD for 2014, hopefully next weekend??

I took a final photo of my ORT jar before emptying it on the 2nd (when we got back from seeing friends and family), and it now contains a small layer of green and gold from the banner!

I've not started anything new yet - I just really want to get GB finished! I'll do a yearly round up this week (well hopefully - I really don't want to get out of the habit of blogging again).

Happy New Year everyone, I hope it is stitchy-tastic!
