L&L Song of Christmas progress

I have started to keep a record of how long I spend stitching on my projects. Here are photo's of L&L's Song of Christmas - the first showing progress before timing, and the second showing progress after 10 hours of extra stitching:

Song of Christmas +10hrs

The photo isn't very clear, as the beads and Nordic threads aren't very visible. The Nordic thread is difficult to stitch with - even after using Thread Heaven...

Package received...

I received this replacement package for the SBEBB Feathered Friends Exchange today from Goldie (her original package got lost in the mail):

Thank you so much, Goldie - I love the cushion!

Photos at last!

Having bought a new camera, I can now display some of the things that I have done recently:

The charts, pinkeep and scissorkeep were birthday presents from Edgar on the Stitching Bloggers Birthday Blog. I am using the scissorkeep at the moment, and I am about to start the Christmas Medley design...

The 'Teaching is a work of heart' design is my most recent finish, and is a Lizzie Kate design.

Lost time...

Well, 3 months have passed since I last left a message on here, and I don't know where the time has gone...

Stitching has been torturously slow, as work has taken over my life yet again. I have now finished the Crazy 7 RR, and I am waiting for my piece to find its way home...and I am finishing the Four Seasons RR at the moment. The Dear Santa RR is way behind schedule...

I'm celebrating at the moment, as I have now got a permanent contract at work, and I hit the Big 40 next week...a momentous time in my life :-)

More pics soon.

Another RR Finish - late again...

This is my recent finish on the Crazy 7 RR - I think they are so cute!

This one is very late - should have been sent in January...
