What I wish I could say...

What I wish I could say is that I got out my Gypsy Queen and did a tonne of stitching this week. What I'm going to say is that I got hardly any stitching done and only worked on my Lakeside Needle Craft Fantasy SAL.
I've just been so tired recently. Not just physically but emotionally too. I think I need a holiday.
Oh well.
So here is my progress.

Not too bad.
What I need is a child free, long weekend just to drink coffee, eat good food and stitch.
Oh well, I can dream ;)
Happy stitching!

I'm a bad girl!

It happened. I was being so good and then my self control ran away! Haha.
I had a new start and how could I not? Everywhere I look I see the Lakeside Needle Craft SAL and I needed it. Also, when my 3 year old saw that cute little Wizard he got so excited. So really, I had no choice! :)
I've decided to stitch it on a piece of 28ct Even weave from Sew It All. It's hand-dyed and the piece is called 'Mist Forrest'.

Here's my progress from the week.

I am absolutely in love with this and I'm finding it really hard to put it away to work on Gypsy Queen but then I remember how beautiful she is and get excited all over again. Hopefully I'll pick her up this week.
Thanks for reading,
Have fun stitching. :)

Progress and a Christmas Mouse!

SO as per usual, I didn't get as much stitching done as I would have liked but every stitch is one stitch closer to a finish. ;)

So here is some progress on Gypsy Queen,

Sorry about the terrible photos.
I did some more of the blue pillar and then the colours that I didn't have arrived so I went back and filled in some of the purple sash and started a blended orange colour in her skirt.

While I'm still in love with Gypsy Queen, I did take a little break from her to stitch up a free magazine kit.

This is one of three Christmas mice from a free Margaret Sherry kit in an issue of WOCS.
I think he's extra cute and I'll probably stick him onto a card for my sister for Christmas.

Well that's all for now, See you soon!
