My stitchy bug has returned!!

I'm currently stitching a birth sampler for my friend's new baby and am really enjoying it, it's a humphrey's corner one and i love the pastel colours in the design. I'm hopeing to have it finished before my friend's daughter comes out of intensive care (she was very premature but doctors say she is fine & healthy, just keeping her in until she's full term) but at the rate it's stitching up atm I think I'll be finished early :) Added to my stash again, went to my mum's work place (the local craft shop) and indulged in some of the bothy threads mr men & little miss kits, I now have Mr Tickle & Little Miss Naughty :) I'll post up some progress pics of the birth sampler later, right now I'm going to go and pick up my needle again :)

hmmm... i'm not very good with deadlines

I set myself targets and never seem to achieve them...will have to work on that methinks.... have done no stitching in the last week and probably won't next week...I'm a bad stitcher lol :)

finally getting some stitching done :-)

Decided it was time I got some stitching done so I've made some progress on the gardening card i was supposed to have finished in time for my nan's birthday back in March but due to various problems in my life it was shelved, I may actually finish it tonight if I pick my needle up again instead of staying online LOL. One of the lovely members of the world of cross stitching forum was nice enough to send me a copy of the halloween charts by Joan Elliot from the Quick & Easy, Stitch & Craft magazine, a soon as I finish a few of my current WIP i'll be stitching the witch design! It's so cute! I think that's all from me on the stitching front, progress pics will follow, I am determined to have something finished by the weekend!
