Okay My arm's been twisted!

I have had my arm twisted (you know who you are!!) to start the HAED SAL Challenge where you work on one project for one weekend in each month for a minimum of ten months. This month, being March, is the last month by which you can join. So I have decided what better occasion than to have a New Start to go along with it. I have decided to stitch Rachel Anderson's Twilight Shimmer which was a RAK given to me by Louanne (Thank you Louanne!) and I'll stitch it on the 25 count dublin linen that Tracy RAKed me with (Thank you Tracy!!). As I'll only be stitching this for ten weekends I decided on this design as there is a lot of block colour in so I reckon I'll get a half decent amount done. Here is a pic of the end product.

So I will be making my first few stitches on this starting this weekend as it happens the second weekend in every month. Although I don't have all the threads I need for it, I do have some to start off with and I'll get more as I go along. Oh I need help remembering all this.

On another note, I have been invited to a stitch along in Nuneaton. Its quite a drive from me and don't know if I'll be able to go. It would be nice to meet some of the folks I have chatted to online and see some of the gorgeous stitching for real instead of thumbnails lol. Is anyone going to this?

The Bouquet for Cheryl SAL has started and I haven't got the fabric or threads for it yet!! I feel a shopping spree coming on. I also want to do a biscornu with the help of the link Tracy sent me. Where will I get the time. I think I'm definately in need of doing a rotation.

Whilst I'm on I may as well do my March stitching goals.

March Stitching Goals

1. Finish page 4 of Dreaming Mermaid
2. Start Twilight Shimmer 9th - 12th March SAL
3. Work on Patchwork
4. Work on Half Sick of Shadows
5. Get fabric and threads kitted up for Cheryl's Tribute.

Thats it.
Happy stitching this week folks.xx

Hi it's Nicola here (Tales from my Needle, on which you left a comment yesterday 22.3.07. You ask if anyone is going to Nuneaton, which, I take it, is on 12th May and is being organised by Clare. I'm going and it's always great fun with lots of chatting and a bit of stitching if you can fit it in. LOL If you can manage to come it would be great to meet you, especially as we live in neighbouring counties.
