My random UFO slot this round was my HAED Cabin In The Woods, and when I looked in my albums I last worked on it in April!!! I can't believe it's that long ago, how time flies.
Working on it also timed perfectly with the HAED background SAL which was over the weekend, so I was really pleased to be able to join in with it as I can't often do them.
And yet again having a timed rotation has proved just what I can achieve when I actually sit down and get on with my stitching rather than letting myself be distracted lol. In my 10 hours I managed about 1600 stitches which is great for me as I thought I couldn't even manage 100 stitches per hour.
And the best bit is if you look at the pic, the lighter bit near the right hand side that carries on down to almost the bottom of the page is actually the start of smoke coming out of the cabin chimney! If I move down a page again when this page is finished I'll be starting the cabin!!!!
So that is round 2 finished and I get to start allover again lol. Next round is going to involve a few changes, as I finished the Eeyore Rug and the needleroll. My oldest living UFO is a kit called School of Dolphins which I bought years ago as DH loves them. I only did a few stitches before it went away lol, but I'm determined to get back to it even though it's on aida. So that is taking the place of the rug. Next up in the small/medium slot will be Just Nan's High Hopes which I've been wanting to stitch for a long time. Whenever I look at this design it makes my think of my mum as she has lots of plant pots in her garden, a birdbath, birdhouse etc, so this will be a gift for her, hopefully for christmas. Tomboy and Cirque will stay the same this round, but the random slot this time goes to Celtic Autumn. I have been considering adding in another small/medium slot as I really want to work on some more smaller projects, but will give it more thought and maybe decide after this round.
Thanks to everyone who visits and posts comments here, it's lovely to see people are interested in what I have to say or show lol. For those who gave me wonderful advice regarding Erin I'm pleased to say that things seem to be improving. She did 3 days last week without crying and has done both days so far this week, which is such a relief. Here's hoping the worst is over...
