Well it's Monday again....

...time for a small update. I got a little bit of stitching done since my last update. I did a bit more on Feathers & Friends and I started a new one this week. I shouldn't have really but I wanted something dead easy to do while I was waiting for Craig to come home on Thursday. I started my Humphrey's Corner Lottie & Lulu Dolly. Craig bought it for me for Xmas. It's actually a children's kit so the material is binca and it's stamped. I've started it using the thread as it is (6 strands) and well, I think it looks awful. Even Craig commented on how it wasn't covering the fabric properly. So I've left it again until I decide what to do with it. I can't decide whether to:
  1. Scrap it and just use the chart and threads on some aida fabric instead.
  2. Finish it as it is. It might turn out fine in the end.
  3. Frog everything I've done and start again using more thread to cover the fabric.
Any suggestions, ideas etc. welcome via e-mail/comments.

I also spent quite a bit on stash. I got Monopoly which I already posted about. I got some Caron Watercolours floss for my floss exchange on ILCS. I also found out about a sale at an ONS Shimmering Dewdrop so I spent just over £10 there on beads and Kreinik braid that I want for some charts I will eventually buy. It would have cost me over £20 normally so I thought it was an offer not to be missed but now I feel guilty cos I still couldn't really afford it. Never mind...I don't *need* to pay the bills ;)

Oh and of course most important of all. I FINSHED WINDING ALL MY BOBBINS!!! YAY!!

Anyway, that's all for now. I need food....

Congrats on finishing your bobbin winding. Woo Hoo! On your project dilemma, I guess if it were me, I'd finish it as is. After all, it's supposed to look like a child did it. Children aren't that particular. ;)
