Back into the swing of things

After an almost two month break from stitching - it's almost impossible to stitch while lying flat on your back, specially when you're fat and everything slides off your belly! - I've finally got back into the swing of it. Had to do a bit of frogging on one of the RR's I've been doing, something I'm not used to cos I hardly ever frog. I'm now working on Kathy's Michael Powell RR and should have it finished tomorrow, ready to send to Rachel in Israel. And I'm trying to find out where my Folk Art Alphabet RR is. Last I heard Mandy had it, but dunno who has it now and it's almost finished. I hope it hasn't been filched or lost cos I paid good money for the chart and sent the original around with it. Will just to buy it again if it has and do it myself. It's a Merry Heart design and really lovely. Not your usual alphabet.

Next I have my Ozark Sampler 2006 to finish off; a HAED to finish, about 200 stitches on that; another MP RR that Craig has been working on while I was ill but which I might have to finish off as he just doesn't have the time really; and a RR for Nicola which I think Craig could have as I haven't seen it for a while. But there's no real hurry for that. Then there's my Celtic Autumn that I should really do some work on too, as I haven't worked on her since about August. SIGH!!

Would that folk art alphabet be anything like mine Jacqui? You'll love it. Now that means that I must compete with you to finish it first LOL

Jacqui said...

Hi Heather, yes it is the same one as yours. It was doing yours that made me determined to do one the same of my own. I love the design. I'm hoping mine is going to come back finished. I'm hoping it is going to come back at all! But if it doesn't I'll just buy the chart AGAIN and do it myself. And that'll be the last time I send round an original chart. LOL.

Oh yikes, yeah I know the feeling of sending round the original chart.

I colour copied mine, just in case. Hope yours comes back soon, but I'm in no hurry to see yours finished and mine ;o)
