What a long day it's been.

After chatting to a lady on FB about going through stitchy stash with a cuppa tea and some biscuits i decided to go through all my stash. All the stash i have is kept on a 5 shelf unit which is packed from top to bottom and a small 3 draw filing cabinet which is beside my cross stitching armchair. That was packed solid too. The bottom draw which is about a foot deep had loads of evenweave packs in sizes 22,25 & 28 count. When all stacked on to off on another the pile was at least a foot high. That now is all in a storage box on my 5 shelf unit. There was just so much stuff, odds and ends which i totally forgot i had.
Anyway the whole sort out took me about 3 hours. I have sorted the fabric got for my new start HAED Curl up with a good book but i've not yet made a single stitch. Not sure if i'll do any stitching tonight now because i am absolutely shattered. Lol Oh well there's always tomorrow. xXx

I'm going to be naughty. Hehe!

My stitchy bug completely deserted me today so to get it back i am starting my sixth HAED. I have chosen Curl up with a good book. Spangler's designs always get my bug going. I'll still have Astronomer out to work on but i can't stitch that while my bug has gone on vacation. Starting a new one will end that vacation so i am going to go ahead and start it.
This uses 86 colours and has a total of 192,600 stitches.

Good stitching day for me.

I started my stitching day on my HAED The Astronomer before 1pm and i stopped before 6pm for dinner. Once we had dinner i went back to stitching for another 2 hours. I am quite pleased with how much i got done today and i am hoping to get loads done tomorrow too.

I'm about to...

..go do some dinner and once i've had that i am going to go do some stitching on my HAED The Astronomer. This HAED uses 120 colours and there is a lot of confetti stitching so it's taking longer to stitch but i am enjoying it a lot. I will try to remember to post an update over the weekend. Happy stitching to you all!!

Been a busy day.

We had 3 of our friends come round and play games of Warhammer with my husband Pete and we cooked a leg of lamb roast dinner with green beans, green cabbage, broccoli, baby carrots, roast potatoes, Yorkshire puds with lots of gravy and mint sauce. It went down a treat and everything got eaten. There wasn't anything left that we could of given the dogs other than some gravy which they had poured over their dinner. I washed and wiped up after dinner seeing as hubby did all the cooking. Once that was done i sat down to my stitching. Just about to go back to it until i'm ready for me bed. I hope you all had a good Sunday. xXx

The Astronomer. Back to stitching - 12th Nov 2011.

This is how The Astronomer looked when i last stitched any of it which was in July. I fancied a change from Train of dreams so i am going to work on this for a while.

HAED Train of dreams (12th Nov 2011)

I miss stitching Train of dreams.

Not done any stitching on this since the last photo i posted on the 4th because i have got a nasty dry tickly cough and have a lot of coughing fits which result in wrenching and a little sickness. So obviously i don't want to be near Train of dreams when that happens. I will get back to it as soon as the coughing has calmed down or stopped all together. Still been satisfying my stitchy bug with stitching small Christmas tree ornaments for a Facebook stitching group. I do miss Train of dreams and can't wait to be able to get back to it.
