Whoohoo For Rotations!

I seriously can't believe how well my rotation and stitching in general are going so far this year. I know a lot is due to me being in so much less pain from my coccyx for now and it will probably not last, but I'm making the most of it lol.
Since my last post I've worked on all my rotation pieces, but have only taken pics of the ones I've not photographed for a couple of weeks.
Mondays are time for me to spend with my HAED QS Alisha and although progress with working on this just one day a week is very slow I'm really enjoying it. I'm not rushing, just enjoying each stitch. Although I'd love to get this finished sooner rather than later I think I'm finally realising that it's better to make slow progress and enjoy it than rush and end up putting it away again because I'm sick of it.
Tuesdays are my LK SAL of 6 Fat Men with Sally and this is so much fun to work on. Sally and I have veered off in opposite directions with this so it's nice to be able to see what the other has stitched each week. Again I've been alternating stitching snow and the house.
This week's final pic is of my Nouveau Encore Designs Personalised Sampler. I've only photographed the page I'm working on at the moment, but it's getting there and I think I can see the halfway point on the horizon!Prairie Schooler's September also had some attention the other day but hubby decided to scupper my plans and came home earlier than usual on Wed night so I quickly had to throw everything down the side of the sofa so he didn't catch me with my secret stitching!
And I've now finished the backstitch strips on Cottage Garden, have attached the interfacing, fraystopped the edged and cut all the pieces, so it's now ready for me to start whipstitching it into a mattress pincushion. Sunday is my free choice day and I'm keen to get this finished up as soon as possible so I think it might be coming out then.
Well I'm expecting hubby and DD home anytime to shatter my peace so I'd better go and look like I've been doing something useful! Have a great weekend and til next time, happy stitching!

You're making fantastic progress on Alisha and I love your 6 FM. I'm really enjoying stitching this with you and hope we can carry on with a SAL when we've finished it :) lol! PS is looking gorgeous too.

It's so good to see you enjoying your stitching again. I think this stitching from stash is doing us good :)

Great progress on your WIPs, the snowmen are gorgeous and I love the personalised sampler. I really must rescue my French Alphabet sampler from where I threw it under the sideboard in disgust...
