A Long Weekend Stitching..............

I may have mentioned before that I was having a relaxing long birthday weekend!

Well I have done just that!

The fatherest I have moved from my couch is to hang the washing out in the front garden and down to the letterbox to get the mail and I have loved every minute of it!

So what have I been doing for the last 3 days..........well the original plan was to work on and finish "Rose Fairy" however that went by the wayside, after I read a post on someones blog about feeling like they always started something and never seemed to finish anything.......I took it on board, and I did a count of projects I have started and well lets just say they have gone by the wayside......So I did a re-think and I have picked up a project that I have always loved and am going to finish it in the next 2 weeks unless anything horrendous happens!

"Sweet Selina"

Now before you all start to comment on how fast I stitch remember that, that's all I have pretty much done for the last 3 days!

So before -

"Sweet Selina"Before
"Sweet Selina" after first big block
"Sweet Selina" After second block
"Sweet Selina" 3rd block 4th Feb
"Sweet Selina" after 4th block 5th Feb
So as you can see I have made a pretty good dent in this, and its starting to look really good, so today's plan is to get the Heart and Strawberries done, well as much as I can. And yes I am leaving the face till the very end, I hope that my big hoop is large enough to get around all the 754 I need to do!

Also it depends what the birthday fairy has in store, which I hope is not much, Its just another day, and for some reason I seem to always be down for it anyways!

Hope you all have had a great weekend!

Happy Stitching!

Okay, so I'm not allowed to comment on how quick you've been. Am I allowed to say 'Wow, you've done loads' instead? She's looking absolutely gorgeous. I'm starting to fall completely in love with Hannah Lynn's designs, I like the idea of doing the black then colouring her in.
I'm planning on holing up and stitching on Thursday this week, can't wait!

Wow, she is looking so beautiful. I'm so jealous, I wish I had more time for stitching. I must admit I'm the same for starting and not finishing projects. I have set myself some cross stitching goals for myself this year so hopefully that will work. Well done again on your wonderful stitching.

Very very beautiful!! Love Sweet Selina as well, such wonderful colours.

BEAUTIFUL!! Don't you just hate it when people ask how you stitch so fast when it's not the case. Well I hate it anyway as I don't stitch fast but just have nothing else to do all day apart from stitch so the amount I stitch gives the illusion of speed! Anyway..... Selina looks stunning! Can't wait to see her all finished and good luck!!
