Gigi won the day

Yesterday I said I would be working a bit more on my UFO, but that was before I had seen the next part of Gigi (Sorry Mr Stick but I did do some this week). Part 6 was released and I just had to do it first. I just love, love, love this one. I love the colours, the design and most of all the stitching on it. I made a teeny tiny change though. I hate queen stitch - its not hard I know but its not the stitching its the finish of it. I just do not like it. Anyway there was a little tied windmill stitch and I liked that so I did another one in place of the queen stitch and I am really happy with the results.

Today I hope to get a bit stitched on ISD. I do not think it will be very much at all today though as I am off out in a minute (coffee with a friend), and then I really must make a start of the Rocket later. I have an oblong sponge type cake so I am hoping i can cut the shape out of that. We shall see lol.

Hope you are all busy with your stitching, and thank you once again for finding the time to come and take a peep into my little Nook.

Hi Helen,

GIGI is looking gorgeous!

And yes, I understand the feeling about picking up another project instead of the one next in the rotation! :-)

The colours of your Gigi look gorgeous. I can understand that it's pure fun stitching it.

WTG finished part 6 already, i've only just printed mine off!

I think Mr Stick will forgive you, do an ivy leaf as punishment LOL

Gigi is looking gorgeous Helen! I have loved this mystery more with each part that's been released and your wip is just about tipping me over the edge to start it lol. Luckily I need to choose colours before I can start, so might be able to put it off a little while, but I think starting this is inevitable for me now.
