Long days with not much to show for it!

So much for the long hot days of summer! It may be hot, but they certainly don't feel very long....I don't seem to be able to get much time to stitch just now.

I have been a bit naughty and started on my new kit. I blame Caitlin at Naughts and Cross Stitches as she is working on the same kit and posted a picture of her WIP which you can see here. Of course, once I saw her stitching, I just couldn't help but start it.....



I can't wait to start working on the sky part of the design, the colours are just gorgeous!

I have also been working on some secret stitching, and I can show you this part of the design....


...it looks a bit weird, but it will make sense and all will be revealed shortly!

Twilight fairy hasn't been totally neglected, just not an awful lot of stitches added to her this week.



I bet you're struggling to see the difference from last week's picture!  :) Hopefully next week there will be an obvious change......fingers crossed as the days are still long!

Until next time...happy stitching!

Summer is just too hot to do anything fun. At least, that's my take on it. LOL! Stitching looks great!

They are all lovely colours - I'm not surprised you couldn't wait to start it! Twilight Fairy is so pretty. Hope your husband is well.

The days are never long enough for all the stitching and crafts that I want to work on. Your new project is so pretty.

No matter how much we try, the fellow blogger friends (including you and me:)) won't let us get over with the addiction of new starts:)
Good progress on your twilight fairy. Since there is no before picture in this post and I am not that sincere blogger to check the old post, I assume the entire stitching seen on image is the progress ;)
