Decisions and Progress!

I have been making decisions this week. I have decided to adjust my rota slightly so that I can stitch on some of the smaller designs I have that I would like to stitch up so:-

Monday to Friday I will work on the following:-

Blue Ribbons Peppermint Twist
AOY The Lighthouse
Lanarte Poppy

Both the Poppy and Lighthouse are not very far from being finished perhaps two to three weeks work on each at the most. Peppermint Twist after much agonising I have decided to start again on Summer Khaki Linen which I have ordered today from Sew and So so hopefully that will reach me either tomorrow or Friday. So I will take that on holiday with me to make a new start. I didn't like the Aida I was stitching it on and also was having trouble seeing the white thread on it so decided to start again. I know I am mad.

Saturday and Sunday I will work on the following:-

Angel in Hand's Angel in the Cloud - this is needed for September as a present
L*K Halloween Sampler
L*K Spooky Patch
LHN Holly & Berries
Stitchy Kitty Chillys Gift
Prarie Schooler Freebie 2007
L&K Winter ABC
Plum Pudding's Fa La La
Prarie Schooler Freebie 2008

As you can see I have had some of these charts for quite some time and would really like to get them finished, especially since I can now finish them into ornaments.

I have left Dimensions Row of Love off my rota for a while until I get Poppy and The Lighthouse finished by which time I hope I shall start enjoying it again.

I have also joined Sally's LHN Ponsietta House SAL beginning on 1st December (

I hope I haven't bored you too much with this but wanted to get my plans down in writing to see if I can stick to them lol.

This week I have been working on my Lanarte Poppy and am really pleased with how it's coming along.

If you have made it to the end of all my waffle, well done. I am holiday next week in Chapel St Leonards so will post a picture of Peppermint Twist the week after.

Until next time, happy stitching and many thanks for all your comments I really do appreciate them.

Lesleyanne xx
