A Little Unfinished Business

Yesterday was UFO day and I did the little dragon fly and started on the J for Jasmin. Was at Mums most of the day and my daughter came in the evening so not a lot got done but it was a lovely change from stitching ivy. I must stitch another couple of leaves down this left hand side before I move on though or I will be like before and having to stitch dozens of the things.

I forgot to say that I had been stitching at the weekend but it was the monthly challenge for the Stitch and Stash forum at Jaynes Attic and I am happy to say that is now finished and made up and ready for reveal day which I think is the 24th or 25th June. There was a problem at the forum at the beginning of last month when an update went wrong. During this time all the votes for the May challenge were lost so it was decided that we could do any of the chosen charts and also we were given until June to stitch as it took quite a while before people could get into the site again. So this month it will be a very mixed bunch of designs and finishes so I am looking forward to seeing all of those.

Today its rota and should be Taj but as I only have that one and Friends left to do this time I decided I would do Friends first - I am hoping that this one is going to be a finish (fingers crossed tightly) though I am not sure how much I will get done today. I have to go to the Post Office before I do anything else today and later I am meeting friends for lunch and going to have my hair trimmed. Still hoping to get a good bit of stitching in so watch this space....

Speak to you all again soon and thank you for your continued support.

I'm afraid I've been very naughty and revealed my SAl challenge already because I'm so proud of the way I finished it! Do you think Karen will whip me with wet floss??? lol!

Your UFO is looking pretty:)

Round of applause for stitching on UFO might, Mr Stick is chuffed to bits, it's growing nicely.

My SAL is all stitched just need to make it up now.

Enjoy your lunch out.
