Not much done

I am afraid I have had this sickness bug which is running wild at the moment so did not get a lot of stitching done this week.

I managed a little on The Quiltmaker but not anywhere near as much as I would have liked so I am going to continue with her this week.

This is progress todate.

Today was the start of our Christmas Card SAL and I decided I was going to do the Chickadee in a Santa Hat from Heritage. He is adorable but lots and lots of fractional stitches and I have decided that I dont want to part with him. He is not done by a long way yet but when he is I am going to make him into a little wall plaque for next Christmas. I will find sometime in the week to do the Christmas Card so I dont fall behind. Here is a picture of him as he stands tonight.
I am sure you will agree he is far too cute to part with lol.
Tomorrow I am hoping to work on Queen of the Needle. As I am still not fit to do much else, sitting and stitching is about all I can do so I am hoping to have a good day and really make a difference to it.
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit and read my blog.

I hope you feel better soon dear Helen. I´ll be sending healthy thoughts your way. I love the progress you are making on The Quiltmaker. I have got it kitted up in my stash just have to find time to start. LOL And I absolutely love your little Christmas chickadee. I can understand you not wanting to part with it, it is so cute. Hope tomorrow will be a lot better for you healthwise. Take care my friend.

I love your chickadee, don't give up. The quarter and three quarter stitches aren't too bad on linen but can be more of a challenge on 14 or 18 count aida. I did the one called Sitting Pretty and I just took my time with it and eventually finished it. Your quilter is looking lovely as well.
