Half page

Last weekend I'd done all the housework on Friday night so had a full weekend to stitch and no hubby!! I finally finished half of page 3 on SK ToT. 

Found a puddy tat and a pumpkin in this half :-)

So close

As always I'd forgotten to update my blog when I'd finished a page. I'm so bad at this. 

So without further delay here's QS Porthole of Fantasty 1 with 4 pages complete. 

I have 2 more pages to go for a finish but I'll be moving onto SK ToT as the next page will be out soon. Just gotta find some stitchy time. Hopefully I will be able to have a good bank holiday stitchy weekend.

I've had a major stash enhancement this week. I'd done a lot of overtime recently so I decided to treat myself. I purchased a full set of DMC and I'm still drooling over it :-)

Page finish

I totally forgot to post my newest page finish!

So here she is

Page Finish

Haven't posted for a while but that's because I've been flitting between projects and had limited stitching time so no pages complete :-(. Until today!!!

Porthole of Fantasy 1 now has two pages complete. I just scraped in to get it finished before 6 week goal, which is today.

Going to work on the BB SAL for a while now.

Peek a boo

I've been working on Porthole of Fantasy 1 since my finger has healed enough to stitch. I'm doing this as a SAL on FB. We are are doing a page every 6 week and not posting pics till the target dates. The first page needs to be done for 12th February. Hopefully I'll be done by the end of the week.

Here's a sneaky peek at how's she's looking.

SK Trick or Treat

I finally got back to where I was before the restart and a little bit more. I have done a quarter of a page as of Monday.

I've now got Porthole of Fantasy 1 back out to try and complete the page. If seems like such huge blocks of colour after the SK. Unfortunately I managed to slam my finger in a car door today so stitching is is going to be impossible for a few days at least :-(

Here's how SK ToT is looking.

SK Trick or Treat

I was doing quite well with this design until I decided I wasn't totally happy doing 2x1 tent stitch on 28ct with all the confetti that's in this piece.

I ripped it all out and have restarted it Friday doing 1x1 full crosses. I'm much happier with it and my fingers are more than happy that they are no longer being pierced by the needle while trying to work it through the fabric.

The top pic is how it was looking before and the bottom is how it's looking after 2 days of stitching. I started at the bottom of the page this time.

Goals Post

Hiya everyone
Ive decided to start the new year with a blog. Mostly for somewhere to keep my pics and set goals for the year.  
So my goals for the year are:

Start and finish Porthole of Fantasy 1

Im doing this as part of a SAL on facebook.

Start and finish SK Trick or Treat

This one is the HAED 2013 BB SAL. Very excited to get the first page of this chart.

Start Hannah Lynn Montage


Ive been waiting 4 months to start this one so its going to be a very happy day when I finally do.

Page 3 of Mini Cheshire Cat


Page 1 & 2 already complete. Page 3 will complete the top row.


1 page of Pink Butterfly Fairy

I would ideally like to finish the 2nd row but the pages of black dont keep my interest long enough.

Start and finish Tribal Santa Hat

Cant decide whether to do this one on black aida or a hand dyed fabric.
