I'm back..........

Hi all

Well now I am back to work my stitching time has been drastically reduced but nevertheless I have some pics for you! Some are from the last week in January before I went back to work.

First up is another finish from my crazy January challenge:
Meet Ozzy!
The Cat's Whiskers - What A Hoot!
Stitched as charted with recommended DMC.
Stitching completed January 2011.

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!

Day 1

Day 2

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!!

Happy Stitching

Your finishes and wips look great Amanda. Isn't it the pits when work interferes with out stitching? I need to post to my blog, especially my A Love Song finish. I seem to want to either stitch or read blogs rather the post to my blog.
