This is what I finished Saturday. I still need to sew the giggle buttons on but it is done. I am going to sew it into a door hanger for Shannon's room.

Yesterday I started part 9 of the EMS sampler. I sort of lost interest in it for a while there but am enjoying it now. I don't see the point in stitching something you don't enjoy stitching.

Worked this morning and found out my hours are all changing. Not sure exactly to what yet but apparently I am not having Tuesdays off after the 22 of the month. I have enjoyed my day home but if there is work I would rather be doing that.

Have had to bail out of the March GTG with my stitchy 123 friends. I am guessing I have done my deposit. Will have to check. DH's Family will be here from Italy and they have plans that out weigh mine so there ya go.

Until next time take care.

This is a Wichelt Imports freebie I found yesterday and decided was perfect for trying my new silk. Might stitch it into a fob? or ornament not sure yet. It's actually called Fall Leaves which I can kinda see but thought it was more like a snowflake.

Here it is the finished Enchanted Alphabet. Will take it to the framers at some stage this week. I have a couple of things to frame so need to put the thinking cap on as to how I want them done.

As many of you know I want to stitch Emma's Garden. Getting the fabric is the tricky bit. SO yesterday I had a play. I brought some lugana and some dye and had a go. Here is how it turned out.

Looks sort of yellowish in real life. Not sure if I am going to use either of them yet? Used bleach as the chart instructions say to to get the lighter shaded along the top. Not happy with the bleach I worry about it rotting.

Tonight I am going to play with some Silk I picked up at lincraft. Just a cheapy but it is something different. I thought I might do a small Christmas ornament. Have not decided really will see what happens when I get a few charts out.

I also hit Officeworks yesterday and picked up yet another usb stick (that makes 4 I think?) I wanted to blow up some stitchery charts to make a wall hanging while I was there and ended up starting that project last night. I am hopeless at one project at a time.

Ok short and sweet off to put away the Enchanted Alphabet stash and tidy up my stitching table.

WIP's too numerous to list lol....
