Back From Hols And Updates



Well we're back from another week away in the caravan and although the weather was poor we had a good time and I'm sad to be home. Seems like the laundry is never ending and the house is a tip with emptying everything out of the caravan, but we'll get there. The next two weeks are going to be awful as my boss is in holiday from work and so I'm doing the work of two people or trying to lol. So if you hear screaming from West Yorkshire or see in the news of someone found hiding under their desk don't worry, it's only me....
Stitching wise the 10 hour rotation has been going fabulously, and I'm back to really enjoying my stitching again. I started the Shepherd's Bush Welcome Baby Needleroll before we went away, carried on with it when we got there, then moved onto Tomboy QS and finished my 10 hours on that last night. I'm really pleased with the progress I've made on both, only need to add the beads/charm and make the needleroll up next time round, and Tomboy now has a shoulder and I got a load more of the dreaded blending filament in the background done.
I've decided that for now I'm going to keep the rotation small. If you look in the sidebar you'll see I've just got the rug, needleroll, Tomboy and then a random UFO. The random one is chosen using a random number generator I've got and it picks one of my other ufo's to work on until there's space in the rotation to add it permanently. Once the rug is finished I'll be adding one of my other non-HAED UFO's and when the needleroll is finished I'll start another small/medium project, and so on. I seem to be working through it pretty quick right now, so I might add another slot in soon, but for now I'm just enjoying it and making the most of it. The number generator chose Cirque Des Cercles for this round, so I'll be picking that up later today, can't wait!
Off now to try to catch up on the boards and blogs a bit.... Thanks to all who visit here and comment, I love knowing people are interested in what I'm doing and it's not just me rambling to myself lol. Have a great week everyone (hugs)

Glad you had a good holiday Lisa and glad to hear you sounding so much more positive. The break has obviously done you the world of good.

Love both your wips but Tommy girl is rather outstanding isnt she. Ive seen a few different variations on her and they all stand apart from anything else.

I'm glad you have found a rotation to bring back your stitching mojo! Isn't it a great feeling!

Tomboy is looking just stunning and I love Shepherd's Bush patterns. Can't wait to see more!
