Okay, I caved...

I have a new start! I have started A Most Noble Pursuit which is a collaberation of ten different designers. Here is my small start on the first square which is by The Workbasket. It is worked on 36 count lakeside linen and uses needlepoint silks. What's another BAP hey??

The Workbasket

Here is my finish for the JA's March Challenge. I made this little pillow and stuffed it with lavender.

Blue Ribbon Alphabet tree

I am having a hard time trying to decide which SALs to join at the moment as there are that many going on.

EMS Rose Sampler
Periphaeria Spanish Sampler
Papillon Creations How Does Your Garden Grow?
Ink Circles Book of Circles mystery
Tournicoton Mystery
and probably several others which I am unaware of. If you know of any then let me know and I'll add them to my to do one day list.

Here's some pics of the kids. One of Elijah smiling. Poor lad he now has three teeth that I can spot. And one of Lily doing her Girls Rock thing with her new electric guitar that her dad bought her.

Hope everyone has a fun stitching week. xx

I must not let my DD see this picture of your DD with her Hello Kitty guitar or I will NEVER hear the end of it! LOL!

Three teeth? Good heavens! Our Arden drools like he's teething, but so far I don't feel anything in there.

Nice new start, the more the merrier is my motto :)

Love your new start. Decisions, decisions... those SALs are all so nice, my favourite would be the Tournicoton one.

Love the photos of Lily and Elijah, such beautiful kids :-)

That is a fab guitar!

I love your new start! This is another piece I've got tucked away in my stash!! The pillow is just adorable too.

Elijah is looking very cute indeed.

Kathy said...

Cute kids. A rock star in your family.

Cute pillow. Nice job.

Look forward to your progress on Most Noble Pursuit. Not sure that I have ever seen it done up.

Stephanie said...

Ah, the kids are so cute :) Lovely cushion finish, I do love that design!

Carol said...

I love how you finished the Alphabet Tree with the lace trim :-)

Sharon said...

Nice start! Your pillow is lovely! The kids are adorable! I love Lily's guitar-I don't think I have ever seen a Hello Kitty guitar before. Too cute!

Sally said...

Beautiful photos of your gorgeous family Hazel. Your DD looks so proud of her guitar:)

Love your new start. I'm looking forward to watching your progress on this.

Your pillow is beautiful.

Juls said...

Rachel V said...

Aww, great pictures of your kids! Your pillow finish is very sweet and congrats on taking the plunge on your new big project- looking good!

Karin said...

I love the Hello Kitty guitar - it's fantastic. Is she learning to play? Your stitching is lovely.

She is so cute with her guitar, what a fun one with the Hello Kitty on it. Elijah looks very happy in his picture too, it doesn't look like his cutting three teeth bothered him at all.

Your new start is looking great, that will certainly keep you busy for a while. Your pillow turned out lovely as well. There are several wonderful SAL's going right now. The Ink Circles one is the one that is tempting me.

Cheryl said...

Hazel i am queen of the baps at the moment, or so it feels, so i know how it feels to cave all the time LOL Love your new start anyway!
You should definitely start the EMS rose sampler. I just have and its an easy and enjoyable stitch!
Love the pictures of the kids, that one of Lily is very cool!

The new start looks good. Love the lavender idea. Elijah is cuter every time I see him. Love Lily the rock child. Who knows maybe she will be a star some day.

That guitar is awesome and she looks so natural with it! Elijah is beautiful...he's perfect! Love your stitching, great Liberty finish, keep up the good work! Amazing how much stitching you're getting done with a wee little one in the house!
