First up, here's my March ornament:Country Cottage Needleworks - Visions of Sugar Plums unknown 28ct linen with DMC
I was so sorry to hear the bad news about Lisa from the Primitive Needle as were a lot of others. I decided to stitch one of her designs. Here's a little witch:Fabric is a remnant from my stash, think it was part of a hand-dyed grab bag from silkweavers. Threads used were Crescent Colours - Raven, GAST - Fragrant Cloves & GAST Avocado.
The last few weeks I've been stitching on an older wip, Mirabilia's Mermaids of the Deep Blue. The last time I touched this I had to frog a bit and ended up putting it away. I was just past the halfway mark. Here's a progress pic of the whole project, I've been working on the left mermaid and you can see with the mermaid on the right where I was at previously.Here's a close-up of the area I've been working on, it seems blogger has turned the pic sideways for some reason though. Sorry for the lousy pics, my camera seems to be playing up!
Well that's it for now, I'm currently working on Bent Creek's Easter Snapper for an Easter SAL I'm in with one of my yahoo groups. As I only started it last night I haven't got a pic yet but will endeavour to get one soon.
Thanks for looking and as always, your comments if you have a chance to post one are most welcome!

First up is another finish from my crazy January challenge:
Next up are some progress pics on a couple of other crazy January pieces:
Victoria Sampler - Christmas Treasures
progress as at January 31, 2011
Blue Ribbon Designs - Autumn Leaves & Sunflower Seeds progress as at February 4, 2011
Last weekend I hosted a get together at my house. A lot of fun was had by all, some stitching was done & we even managed a couple of finishes! An amazing feat as usually there is too much laughter & chat to even stitch! I am so glad we have airconditioning as it was the hottest day of the summer here and was still 36C outside at 6pm! Thanks to all who came, we need to do it again soon! I didn't manage any stitching as was chatting too much but after the ladies left I managed to kit up a piece for a SAL I participated in. I started him on Sunday afternoon and finished him on Monday night! Just love him!
Heart in Hand - Leggy Snowman
I'm currently participating in a 12 days of S.E.X exchange with some friends and we started opening parcel on the 10th, here's my first 2 parcels, I'm sensing a definite theme here!
I'm currently working on on of my previous wips as I'm hoping to get some of them finished this year too, at the moment it's Elizabeth's Designs - In the Garden of my Heart. I'll try and post a progress pic tomorrow.
Well that's enough from me for today, if you've stayed with me this long, thank you!!

Next up is Just Nan's Frost on the Pumpkin. I think this piece took me longer to decide what fabric to use than it did to actually stitch it! It's so cute & sparkly though & I'm really pleased with it.
