Another Page Happy Dance

Going back to rotating was definitely a good idea as I finished my third page on Cabin In The Woods last night! That's about 1500 stitches in about 5 days, much better than I was doing on Tomboy by avoiding her lol.
Then today I pulled Tomboy back out to work on, and stitched on her whilst I had a special visitor, Dawn! As I've got the week off work this week and Dawn has a child free day on a Wed we decided to get together for a stitchy session and it was great fun to sit and stitch and chat the day away, and yet again we found we have even more things in common. Dawn constantly amazes me at how quick she stitches and how much she gets done, but I think she's right in that she doesn't spend as much time on the pc and msn as I do. So I'm going to try to turn over a new leaf and see if I can achieve more by spending less time surfing, so watch this space.
Tonight I will start my 10 hours on Tomboy properly (I counted what I stitched today as extra) and see how I get on, then once that is done I'm having a new start! I finally managed to get hold of Country Cottage Needleworks' Gingerbread Cottage which I've been drooling over since it was released, and I've ordered the two Crescent Colours skeins I need from Sew and So this afternoon. I wouldn't usually get them from the UK as they work out quite a bit more expensive, but as I want to start it soon I figured it was best, and to justify it I also ordered my fabric and threads for the Quaker RR which starts in January lol. I've decided to stitch mine on 28ct antique white Brittney using DMC 99 which is a lovely variagated pink.
So I've got some lovely stash to look forward to, and even lovelier stitching!

Wow! You really had smoking needles the past few days :) I am enjoying seeing your progress on Cabin in the Woods, because I really want to start that one soon!

Gingerbread Cottage looks like such a fun piece to stitch.

well done on getting your rotation going again Lisa. Gingerbread Cottage is one I've been eyeing up too, but I can't justify it until after christmas :(. Enjoy stitching it

Cabin looks fantastic Lisa! Congratulations on finishing the third page:)

I can't wait to see your progress on Gingerbread Cottage. It's gorgeous.

It sounds like you and Dawn had a lovely day.
