A.W.O.L.

Both myself and my stitchy bug have been AWOL for the last month.  I had my new Olympic start and was really enjoying it but due to being so engrossed in the Olympics I haven't stitched as much as I would have liked.  Even whilst on holiday my stitchy bug didn't put in an appearance.  I have nearly finished page 1on Mini Rose by HAED but not quite but will show you a picture anyway.


I have to put this aside now as my husband has put his foot down with a firm hand and told me I HAVE to start his Chelsea Football Club logo or he is putting the Iron Maiden poster up in my front room especially since I have stitched for other people and not him.  So what's a girl to do.  So in the next couple of weeks I will be starting it after I have stitched my monthly ornament SAL with Angela and Lisa's RR that needs to be posted shortly.  At least I will have something to show you.

I am late again for my TUSAL but here its picture although there is not a lot of difference from last month.


Thank you to everyone who takes the time to leave a comment.  I don't say thank you enough but it really does make my day and I do appreciate it.

Until next time, happy stitching

Nice subtle colours in this project. I think a lot of ladies are struggling recently Lesleyanne with their stitching, quite a few seem to prefer crochet or quilting and knittings, maybe its the growing quicker of a project that appeals in the summertime.

Poor hubby, how could you make him wait so long lol

Great progress!
You need to teach DH to stitch his own Chelsea piece ;D

Yes, I agree - my stitching mojo was absent during the Olympics! Can't wait for the Paralympics to start! ;0)

I have yet to do a post this month, too, Lesleyanne--my blogging mojo is really missing in a big way :)

I think that is so nice that your husband wants you to stitch for him--good luck with his football logo :) Your HAED is looking very pretty--great colors in this one!
