A change in plans

I was all set to show off pictures from the historal exchange I took part in on the cross-stitching.com forums today but sadly my parcel hasn't reached it recipient yet so unfortunately I can't show pictures just yet. However all is not lost as I can just give an update on Mario though the ages.

Still stitching that solid block of colour that makes up the sky. Added about 450 stitches yesterday.

for those that asked, yes the guide lines come off when you wash the stitching, as long as you are using coourfast cotton you should be able to wash it in the machine, however washing by hand in warm water works just as well. Really helps with counting as the blocks match up to the blocks on the chart and saves loads of prep time as you don't have to grid the fabric yourself!
Hoping to do some more on this tonight instead of starting the wedding sampler, I have decided to stitch that at work during my lunch hour, purely because there I know it won't been seen unlike here where there is a much higher risk, especially now that mum seems to have taken to staying up later than me!

Hopefully will have exchange pictures for you soon, happy stitching until next time!
