I have only been able to stitch in the evenings this week and I never seem to get as much done as when i stitch during the day. I think that stitching in artificial light tires my poor old eyes quicker.
For the above reason I didnt get a lot done on Queen this week so Sally is well in front of me again. I like what I have done though and it is such a pretty project that it would be hard not to enjoy it. However I hope I get on better next week as I was really looking forward to stitching the Bunny Rabbits.
With regards to the EMS 2008 Challenge I have been playing and making little blocks of colour that I thought might look right. No 1 is the original one I wanted to use. 2 is CC Dusky Rose, 3 is SSS Organic Raspberry, 4 is SSS Rose Hip, 5 is DF Impulse, 6 is SSS Fruit Punch and 7 is SSS Organic Strawberry. At the moment I am drawn between No 2 and No 7 though 2 is a little on the dark side and 7 a little on the light side lol. The others dont seem to have any variation in them and I might as well use a DMC thread which would work out cheaper if I am going to use a flat colour. I really wanted some variation and the last one seems to have the most. I might try and stitch one of the leaves in this at the weekend and then make up my mind. Might even stitch a leave in each of them so I can compare. I hate it when I have my mind set on a colour but cant seem to find it. My ideal would be a mixture of the top two which are both the sort of dusky colour I was after in the first place. Watch this space lol I could change my mind completely.
Tonight I have been working on my UFO and have nearly finished the E, again I had hoped to have far more done. I might take it over to Mums tomorrow and do a wee bit while I am there, though usually she has something lined up for me lol.
Thank you all so much for visiting your comments keep me going. Bless you all and happy stitching.
