I loved every minute on this. There are two all cross stitch version also, but I chose the speciality stitch version. I am stitching it on a 32ct evenweave in a pale cream shade. I have used mainly dinky-dyes silks but the blue one is a Caron Waterlily. I have not added beads yet as I prefer to leave them to the end, and also I am not quite decided which colour I want to use yet. I only spent a couple of evenings on this one - no day time stitching with Oscar to play with, so I am really please at how quickly it stitched up.
Tomorrow is Queen of the Needle again and I am going to try and get some of this stitched in the morning as we are going out tomorrow evening.
I am thinking of moving Tuesday lol - not the day but the stitching for that day. It is UFO day and as I usually go to Mums on a Tuesday and I am always wacked when I get back I just dont seem to be making the progress I had hoped for. I am therefore going to just do whatever is in my rota, or any finishing up bits etc on Tuesday evenings and do my UFO on Wednesday - I probably need to put in an application to Mr Stick, done in black ink and with triplicate copies but I am sure he wont mine (he has got a soft side Im sure).
Main plans for next week is to try and finish Barnabee I have got over half of this times done so I think I should manage it.
Hope you have all had a nice weekend. We have had rain but not constant and nowhere near as heavy as it was last week, and the puddles seem to have sank into the ground over the weekend.
