My LONG project list!

So while I was trying to get some pics uploaded I typed up my list of cross stitch projects. It's a bit long.... I counted WIPs as anything I'm doing *right now* and UFOs as anything started and I'm not working on. The ones with stars are for other people. The other headings are self explanatory really...

This year I'm hoping to finish both the ones I'm working on now, along with the Forget-me-not Tablecloth, Christmas Wreath cards for close family, Winnie the Pooh birth sampler and possibly if I can manage it the Native American Sampler. I also want to finish my (2nd!) L&L 'The Wedding', Cora's birth sampler and my poppy coasters by March next year. After that I'm going to finally get round to doing some projects for myself, well, hopefully!! I've not got much to do really..........

Finally pictures...

So with a bit of help from a friend I finally got it to work. Stupid PC's! So this is what it will look like when it's finished.

And this is what I've done so far.

Yay! Success finally! So there we are, my current WIP.

Welcome to my new stitchy blog!

So I decided my other blog was awful and I wanted something just for my stitchy stuff so here it brand new stitchy blog! So anyway... you should know that I'm well into my cross stitching. I have enough projects lined up to sink a battleship!

At the moment I'm working on 2 different projects. One is called 'Heart Strings' and is for a very dear friend of mine. Can't say much more about that one as it's a surprise! The other is a chart by Butternut Road called 'Feathers & Friends'. This is actually something my mother bought years ago with the intention of stitching. She never got round to it and now her arthritis is too bad to stitch so I have taken over. I've been putting some serious work into it lately and am hoping (against the odds a bit) that I can finish it by September.

Until I figure out how to post pictures (I can't get it to work a minute - I think I'm being thick...) you can access my photos through my links here.

Feel free to take a can see my ugly mug too :)
