I managed to get the cottage picture done this time and I am so glad as I cannot say I enjoyed that bit of it. That done it is now going away until next time when hopefully I will enjoy this stitching a bit more.
Next in the rota is Blackwork house so I am going to do a couple of days on that.
Saturday I would like to play some catch up with either Gigi or EMS Roses both of which will soon be lagging well behind but as it is both our wedding anniversary and the day we go to meet Nicola and hubby so I am not sure anything will get done at all. Never mind I do at least feel as though some progress is beginning to be made and I am back on track.
I must tell you I am really excited about a new impending start - well not until the new year but I am having really good fun at the planning stage. I have joined the "Me, Myself and I" blog. It is a sort of square robin - similar to a round robin but it doesn't go round LOL. I know I am not making myself very clear - but basically if you have seen the neighbourhood RR's and would love to do one but do not want the commitment then this is for you. We are each going to design our own neighbourhood and then after the 31st December (the only rule as far as I can see is that you are not allowed to start actually stitching before this date) we will start. We will work on our own Neighbourhoods and at our own pace - no set day - no set time - no set anything but we will have the fun of taking part with others as if it was a real RR. If anyone has any charts with houses or cottages on that they no longer want then they will receive a very big welcome at my house. So far I have the LHN ones - Home of a Needleworker, The Counting House and Over the River and through the woods. I have an Elizabeth Designs called Garden of My Heart and I have ordered another one called My Country House. On top of that I downloaded a load of freebies from a french blog but the trouble so far it they are all different sizes and getting a dozen or so houses that are all a similar size looks to be impossible. Sure it wont be but just at the moment it feels that way. I shall start trowling through all my mags shortly.
Hope everyone is busy stitching and that you are all keeping well.
Thank you for once again visiting me.
May your frogs stay in their pond
