I do have a finish to show you though..... I put the last backstitches in Michael Powell's - "Mini Greek Island"
Although and I have said this before, Its not the kind of thing I would normally pick up to stitch, But I did and I loved every moment! So I guess it just goes to show you should try something new...........

|Mini "Greek Island" Finished Friday 30th March 2012|
Which brings me to my next Point, I have worked myself out a rotation of projects, I'm not sure why it happened but it did........So In my grand plan I have a 4 week rotation and a weekend project. So that means every week a new project. So Last week as busy as it was, In my grand Plan I was going to work on "Father Christmas" by Joan Elliott. However, because the week turned out how it did my progress was small...........
So this was before......
|"Father Christmas" 25th March|
|"Father Chrsitmas" 29th March|
So I am Re-stitching (that's right another re-stitch) Joan Elliot's "Summer Fairy" from Cross Stitch Collection. We picked out a nice hand dyed fabric from 123 Stitch Its a Picture this Plus Fabric called "Ariel" Is a very pale blue, which is not going to photograph that well, But if you Imagine a skein of 3325 but lighter, then you can see what colour it is.
