1 stitch, 2 stitch, 3 stitch....and not much else!

I feel a bit of a fraud posting what's supposed to be an 'update' of my stitching as I haven't managed to get very much done this week. If I were to show you a before and after picture, it would look more like one of those 'spot the difference' type pictures....yup, it's really that bad! So instead of showing you the before picture, I'm just going to say here's the lighthouse design so far....

... a bit more of the grass stitched....but not much else! Hopefully this will be the week that I find the turbo charged needle!

Until next time...happy stitching!

Lack of stitching time.

Goodness...where does the time go? I can't believe that another week has flown by.....things seem to be so crazy busy at the moment and the Christmas madness hasn't even begun yet!!!

So what have I been up to? Since I didn't manage to post last week, I have two weeks worth of stitching to show....although it's really not much, but still anything is better than nothing. Not being able to pick up a needle and get a few stitches done is my idea of torture!

I have been working on Twilight Fairy which is soooo close to being finished. Here's how she looked last time I posted....

...and here she is now....

Getting close to being done! If only I could get a few days of uninterrupted stitching time I could have her finished....but sadly, that's not going to happen ;(

Last week I worked a bit on Max the cat....he looked like this last time ...

....and here he is now....

...slowly but surely he's beginning to appear....or at least the background is anyway!!!

This week it's back to stitching the almost finished lighthouse design....if I can carve out some stitching time for myself.

Hope you all manage to get some uninterrupted stitching time.

Until next time...happy stitching!

Making great progress.

Gosh....having three different projects on the go at one time is a major undertaking....I can never decide which one to work on! This week, the lighthouse project was the winner and I managed to get quite a bit done as you can see....this was the last picture I showed you....

....and this is what it looks like now...

...lots of rocks and stormy seas...

....colourful autumn foliage

...and a footpath that I really want to walk along! You can tell I have a thing for lighthouses, can't you?!!

Since I'm getting so close to finishing this design, I don't know if I'll be able to leave it for  a while and work on one of the other WIP's that I have....does anyone else have the same problem in deciding what to work on? I've got to say though, it's a good kind of problem to have.  :)

Until next time...happy stitching!
