Last SAL!

Woohoo!!! The final HAED SAL and I have managed to stick to all ten months!! I have managed to complete the second page and think I will stop at this and make it up into a little cushion or something. I am not intending to finish the whole design.
Dec SAL page 2 complete

And I couldn't resist taking this pic of my dd sat stitching away concentrating ever so hard. She only probably managed to get two stitches in but its still progress. I don't think she has really caught the stitching bug yet!

Sorry I have not been commenting on blogs lately. I have been very tired and quite uncomfortable and so have been trying to use any energy I have to work on the frosty friends exchange and the cross stitchers' lottery. I have finished the stitching for the lottery but need to finish it up. The frosty friends is proving to ba a bit more of a challenge - I had to unpick it once.

I have only 4 weeks left to go now and this baby is proving to be quite active (and quite painful at times).

Latest stash purchases (like I really need more stash right??) are charts from Papillon Creations:
Simple Little Quaker
Sheherezade

and Long Dog's
Foursome Reel.

I also purchased a lovely dragonfly needleminder from Kelmscott designs and some thread rings I thought I might be able to use in some exchanges. I am trying to decide on a nice thread colour to do Simple Little Quaker in. Yvonne at Papillon Creations has also put my pics up in her gallery of the stitchers case I made for Linda in the redwork exchange.

Oh and I had a lovely email from Cathy today asking if I would like her Sampler Cove design of Spanish Rouge as she has two charts. That is very very kind of her and really appreciate it. Hugs to you Cathy.

Well, going to make tea and have a rest. I will try and catch up on blog reading over the next week or so. Hugs to everyone. xx

Your HAED is beautiful, as is your stitching daughter. I read where if you only get one stitch in that's one stitch closer to finishing. She's doing a wonderful job. Sorry you are uncomfortable.

Stephanie said...

Oh well done on your HAED fairy - she's lovely :) Sorry to hear you're a bit uncomfortable just now - not long to go!! Your daughter is so sweet - I'm sure you'll turn her into a stitcher yet :)

She turned out lovely and will make a wonderful pillow, or even a small framed piece. Your DD looks very cute working on her stitching, such concentration. Hope you are feeling more comfortable soon, but with as close as you are it probably won't be until after you have the little one. The last month or so is so uncomfortable. Take it easy and rest.
