Firstly I want to apologise that I haven’t been reading blogs for a few days – well, since Easter in fact … truth is, I really want to make the most of my stitching time at the moment to get my deadlines met – and I know when I sit in front of this PC I’m here for hours, and my stitching time goes out the window! So, I’m make a real effort to start stitching pretty much as soon as I get up, after I’ve had brekkie … I feel bad, as it’s been a voluntary decision, and not circumstances that have stopped me reading – but I hope to catch up on Wed/Thu after work before I start socialising for the weekend 🙂
I managed to get a few more stitches into my ‘trial run’ biscornu … which might end up being the ‘real thing’ for my exchange if my other idea doesn’t translate well in the stitching. The trial run one is from a chart I bought a while ago, and really wanted to stitch, so I thought it was a good opportunity. The exchange one, fingers crossed, is a collaboration effort from about 3 different charts … I’m just not 100% how it’s going to work out – it looks great on paper, but it’s always a different story when it’s stitched! Anyway, hopefully today I’ll get a good amount of stitching done on both … and tomorrow is a public holiday, so one more chance for stitching before I have to put the needles down the for the week.
Gina, now I’m on a permanent roster, and I know exactly what shifts I’m doing until approx November, I can work out which Sundays I can get to the Guild – it would be lovely to see you there too 🙂 I’ll send you an email once I’ve sorted it out, if you like, and we can go from there 🙂 Have to admit, I thought of ringing you yesterday morning, but it wasn’t much notice to give you … plus I have to admit, I only really bit the bullet at 10.08am and got moving (I’d been um-ing and ah-ing for 2 whole hours!!).
After coming home from the Guild, I managed to finish my ornie last night while watching The Biggest Loser (Australian one) – it’s the Golden Garland design by Paw Printings from the 2005 JCS ornie issue. This might end up being my ornament for the ornie SAL on the FGBB as well … I’m not sure if I’m going to get time to stitch my Noel one as well – but I’ve said that before, and still managed to meet the deadline, so who knows? haha.
Rightio, now I’m off to put in a book on tape, grab some brekkie, and make a start on the day … I’m currently ‘reading’ H is for Homicide by Sue Grafton, which will be closely followed by Grave Secrets by Kathy Reichs – makes a change from DVD’s ;P
