The Quiltmaker & A Little Reorganisation

I have not had a lot of stitching time over the last couple of days, but nevertheless I can see some progress on QM this time and therefore I am quite happy with what I have achieved.

I am going to get the UFO out tomorrow and intend to stick at it for a couple of days to see if I can complete it this time round. No promises but I am crossing my fingers.

Now for the reorganisation on my rota. After QM I have pastel panel (a new one) and then HAED. After a lot of discussion with my DD who the HAED is for we are going to order more fabric and restart this. I have just had to admit defeat as even with my magnifier I am struggling to see this and feel that it is fast becoming a mess. I was upset at letting DD down as we were stitching two matching pictures together (Such is the way of fairies and Checkmate). However she has said she will be happy to start again too (so that both pictures will still match) if I would like to stitch over two on 32 count. Its still small for me but I know I can manage that. This means that HAED will not be done this time round. As pastel panel was only put in as a break between two big pieces it is coming out (will be back in again soon lol) for now - which takes me on to A Quilt Square which is what I will be doing after UFO and then onto Garden Alphabet... and that is where the next change comes. As my ufo - Celtic Spring - is almost finished I am going to withdraw Garden Alphabet from my rota and it is going to be my next Tuesday UFO SAL piece. So after the Quilt Square it will be on to Barnabee and then Taj.
I can just see you all shaking your heads and thinking "Clear As Mud" lol.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on India, they are so much appreciated.

I'm so looking forward to seeing Celtic finished Helen, i've really enjoyed watching her grow. Garden alphabet will be great for UFO night and Mr Stick will be able to keep an eye on your progress.

The Quiltmaker is looking good Helen. I look forward to seeing your Celtic lady finished - you are so close to finishing. UFO nights are really great for motivation - I know that by myself I would never have kept up with "The Postman". Looking forward to some pictures. Take care.
