Chasing The Blues Away


Well thats what it feels like lol and I am just so glad to see the back of all that blue. I would have carried on and done a bit more tonight but I have ran out of one of the blues I need so it is a good excuse to put her away a little earlier than I should. At least I have got to the bottom of the dress so feel that I am getting somewhere with her at last.
I am going to try and do some more on my monthly challenge, finish chickadee and if possible finish the International Heart for Holland over the weekend.
Really looking forward to next week, Monday with Queen of the Needle, Tuesday with Garden Alphabet and on Wednesday I start the last part of Barnabee so I am hoping that might be my first big finish for the year.
I am also looking forward to getting back to Heirloom Christmas at some point soon, but quite where it is going to fit in my tight schedule I have no idea at the moment, not to worry I am sure I will find a little space somewhere. On my free Sundays I am going to stitch the new EMS freebie the 2008 challenge, which is a lovely sampler which is being done over the year in monthly parts. I will be ordering the thread for that tonight. Also looking forward to find out what Yvonne at Papillon Creations has got in store for us as I know that one is going to be done in monthly parts over the year too.
Thank you for all the lovely comments you sent about both the Garden Alphabet and Queen of the Needle, though as you will know from your own pictures they look so much nicer in real life.

Hi Helen - you are getting on well with the Quiltmaker, she's looking really good. We do need to think about HC - sorry I haven't been in touch but I am rather under the weather at present with a nasty virus. Keep the pics coming as they really cheer me up..lol.
I started 4 wishes this week and after a lot of frogging it's starting to look very nice!
