Be warned! Long update!!

I can't believe how long it's been since I last updated this! Well, like I said be warned this might be long! Well, where do I start....

I got my Heartstrings back from the framers and it looks great! I need to correct myself on my total finishes though because I counted this and it's an exception in the rules cos it's a RAK. I also finished my stitched piece for my Secret Stitcher. Speaking of which I got my first parcel from my Secret Stitcher. I got a chart from my wishlist YAY! Some 14ct aida, DMC threads and a pretty wire embellishment. Oh, and a nice card. I've also had some real nice Caron Watercolours threads from my floss exchange. I sent my first parcel to my Secret Stitcher and just need to get some more bits for the 2nd one.

I took my L&L off my frame and decided to try the hook and loop tape with a different piece. I used my Forget-me-not Tablecloth instead because it had a straight edge and the tape worked a treat!! It's still not as taut as what I'd like but it's much, much better than before.

I started another project (yes, I'm hanging my head in shame) It's a teddy bear stocking and I thought that I could get it done for Christmas but I got way laid by another RAK project and now it's just a 'whenever I finish it I'll give it then' kind of pressie. My RAK project is a simple square made more difficult by the fact that two nights running I had to frog the same part. I finally figured out the mistake the 2nd night and now I'm on a roll again. Hopefully it'll be finished by Thursday to post. Then I'll get back to my stocking.

Anyway, I would've put up pics but it doesn't want to let me so maybe next time. I think that's it for now. I'm getting back into my PC stuff now I'm more settled in my new job so hopefully I'll be updating regularly again soon.
