Following the good example of so many of you in Blogland I have set a rotation to try and get my three WIPs finished - I don't want to call them UFO's yet! So last week was the Wiehenberg Christmas Quaker (an SAL from 2008- oops) and I completed page 4. Here's a picture close up so you can see the Angel.
Then this week I stitched on a Winter Exchange for the Crazy Exchange Group. No pictures of this one until it is received and then I will show off - I have fallen in love with this exchange and it is going to be hard to part with it. Do you ever feel that way? We were totally unrestricted in this - the instructions were to handmake something in the theme of winter and send it with a small souvenir of our country and a postcard to our assigned partner. BUT it's midsummer here and it took a while to be inspired to stitch anything wintery! But I am pleased with the result and as next weekend is a long holiday weekend here in Auckland I will construct, package and get ready to mail to .... oops Almost spilt the beans there. Let's just say that this package has a looooong way to go.
So tonight as I settle in for a TV marathon of Antiques Road Show and then Monarchy I am going to stitch some more on my Anne of Green Gables book.
And the reason for all this disciplined industry - the temptation to start a whole lot of new things that I have seen on your blogs! It is so inspiring and very very tempting to see all that you are doing.
Have a good evening everyone.
