New Start!

Firstly, Happy Halloween.

I had a new start this week thanks to Facebook and the serial starters SAL - who can resist the temptation of a new start. I started Vervaco's Lady in Blue this week as I can't continue with my Poppy until the thread hopefully arrives from Lanarte.

This is my progress so far and hopefully what it will look like when it is finished:-

I have to say that I am loving stitching this so far and so am going to continue with it for the foreseeable future ie until I get bored with it lol. So hope you don't all get bored while I am a one project girl. I didn't even stitch on Row of Love on UFO night - but I will this week I promise.

I have had a few days off this week with my boys as it has been half term. Unfortunately the weather hasn't been that kind to us but I did take them swimming on Thursday. Then on Friday we spent the day with my parents who took us out to lunch which was lovely. They both had sleepovers this weekend, my eldest son spent two days at a friends house and my youngest had a friend spend Saturday night with us so a good time was had by all. I will know doubt pay for it sometime next week when they will both be grouchy due to lack of sleep lol.

It was reveal day today on the Stitch and Stash forum for the monthly stitching challenge. I have stitched this piece but have not finish finished it yet and I can't see it happening at the moment. I have to be in the mood for finishing so when the mood grabs me I will post a picture.

Until next time, happy stitching.

Great progress on your new start, she is looking lovely. It's always fun starting something new.

Lady in Blue looks quite a challenge but going by your beautiful Poppy stitch I know you'll cope.
Half-Term seemed to come and go very quickly but like you our weather was unkind so a little limited to activities - peace and quiet again today and perhaps a little stitchy time!!!

Be always in stitches.

What a lovely new start, not seen this design before but it's lovely.
You sound like me for finishing, I now have ABC Christmas and Sock Monkey I need to finish before the xmas decs go up, and just the thought is enough to put me off lol.

Love your new piece, it'll be so pretty. I am a serial starter too, there is such a buzz from picking what to do, sorting the thread and fabric and making those first few stitches!!
