a little mouse stitching...

Now I don’t want to overwhelm everyone with my constant blogging – I’m on holidays don’t you know – however I thought perhaps more now will make up for less later on if you can follow my thinking... If you can’t - don’t worry - not many sane people can.

2011 - Wow... we are already into January with gusto and this is my first post here for the year... I have started the year in the way I mean to continue - stitching!! The little photo is proof of that... Yes I know it’s not on my “All Stitched Up” list but I did want it for something special - a friend’s birthday – which of course has past like a bat in the night – however I intend to finish it this week so I can at least give it to her in the month of her birthday. I am positive that cross stitch and I aren’t easy bed mates as I tend to see the pattern quite differently to other people – which of course results in lots of re-stitching. My friend A could have this little one whipped up in a day - me, it has taken nearly a week - true I haven't sat at him all day but I am so s-l-o-w... But I have persevered and hopefully he is on his way out the door next week... Before you ask me - he was a little kit on one of the english cross stitching magazines a couple of years ago...
I will take a "farewell" photo of him before he goes...

The next waiting in the line is the Gail Pan BOM of 2009 – threads and needle are at the ready and once I have finished ‘Mouse’ they will be the centre of my attention. I feel like I am repeating myself here. Must be too much of a good thing like sleeping late etc, etc...

Well I hope whatever you are doing at the moment you are enjoying...

Until later...

* a bit later - May you all have had a positive start to 2011... May it be full of unexplored (only the best of course!!!) adventures for you And lots of "diamond" experiences to enjoy..May it be healthy, wealthy and wise in all ways that are meaningful to you... Happy New Year!!!

The little Mouse is gorgeous! If you haven't finished him by Thursday, bring him with you to Val's. After speaking to you on the phone, I suggested to Val we could do something crafty, and she though that was a good idea. So that is YOUR Show and Tell! (Along with your new Xmas gift books)

You're too funny! I only stitch so fast 'cos I'm a lazy sod who doesn't do any housework and doesn't have a family to take care of so I can sit and get a numb bum stitching all day (of course now I'm back to work that stops again) haha. This one is really lovely - I'm sure the recipient will adore it! :D

Sorry I had to cancel my MEL trip last minute (after deciding to go last minute) - am hoping to make plans again for a weekend in March so next time round will have to give everyone plenty of notice so we can catch up! xx
