Getting up to date!

Well, I've finally finished posting about my 2007 finishes ... there's still a way to go until I get totally up to date though - I've been stitching up a storm, plus there's a host of exchanges to admire too :o)

I've decided though that I'm going to chat about my stitching even if I have no pictures to share, as the process is part of the fun. And also, I might move some of my more personal stuff, which I blog about on Livejournal over here too, as I'm not happy with some of the changes on Livejournal.

So, this blog could see action on a more regular basis :o)

I started a new major project over the long Easter weekend - Drawn Thread's Random Thoughts. I think I bought the chartpack from Sally several years ago, when she was rationalising her stash (thank you Sally!), and having recently stitched My Favorite Things, wanted to stitch something else by the same designer, as it was so enjoyable! I've chosen a DMC vintage linen from my stash to stitch it on, and the combination of stitching on linen with silk feels quite decadent - my daily travel projects are all on aida with cotton! Already I have done several of the spot motifs - it's very addictive, I keep saying "just one more ..." I'm looking forward to getting back to it this evening, I didn't really want to come to work!

Looking forward to seeing your progress on Random Thoughts Nic. Strangely enough I regret parting with it now as I've seen a few WIPs of it! Lol!

I'm itching to start stitching a Drawn Thread design ... must be the season! ;)

Sally - when I've finished, I'm more than happy to send the chart and leftover threads to you ...

RT is very nice, I can't wait to see photos. Silk is the best thread to stitch with, it's just yummy and smooth!

Thanks Nic. We can do a trade if you like.
