Hello special readers.
My apologies for not posting sooner. A little man's birthday and illness have prevented me.
My Tom has turned 4! He was adamant about having a Star Wars themed party even though he hasn't watched the movies or seen the TV cartoon. I gather he and his day care friends play Star Wars in the playground and this has captured his imagination. His enthusiasm was delightful as he dressed in his Darth Vader ("Dark" Vader as he called it) outfit minus the mask which was "too scary".
Following the busyness of hosting a party and life in general, I came down with a yucky virus. I am pleased to say I conquered that one using the force. Viruses can be such a drag.
BAP Attack is hosting Turtle Trot 2014. This is my March update. Although I have 10 projects listed in my Turtle Trot list I just cannot seem to get through all 10! I will try harder next month. I have completely lost one project somewhere. I am fearful I lost it camping. Let's hope I track it down soon.
Since February 10th, I have made progress on five of the ten projects on my list.
1. Shores of Hawk Run Hollow by CHS
I was delighted to finally put the finishing touches to the rocks and ocean and stitch the sweet gull. Now I need to get busy and finish stitching the words and sun on this block.
A London cab is now adorning this stitcher. Ain't she sweet? It reminds me of our London trip highlight in 2006 being driven in a speeding cab around Mayfair and Trafalgar Square.
3. Shepherd's Bush 2007 Christmas stocking
An adorable sheep is playing now on the hills below the king.
4. Annet Eriksson's Passion for Stitching Chateau - I have still lost this! Where oh where have I put you?
5. Christmas House by Bucilla
I added a little greenery about the window. I have run out of one colour so it stopped me earlier than I wanted.
6. Designers Forum Needlepoint Rug - no progress this month
7. The Prairie Schooler Alphabet
I have started stitching the whole alphabet on one piece of linen 36 ct two over two. I am totally addicted to this that this will definitely move from my Turtle Trot to my WIPocalypse. I have almost finished the first letter and have started B is for Blackbird.
8. Country House Needleworks Santa's House- Whoops no progress
9. Bucilla Touch of Gold- Whoops no progress
10. The Prairie Schooler Pumpkin Patch- Whoops No progress
Overall I am proud of my stitching progress.
