Crazy January Challenge – Day 4

You can tell I’m back at work when I don’t get to sit down with my needle and thread until 9pm … on normal days I’d pass on the stitching, but seeing as I’m committed to doing this challenge, I forced myself to pick up LHN’s Ladybug Ladybug and managed to put in 2 3/4 hours into it 😀

I was also thrilled to see a recent purchase arrive in my PO Box this morning – the great thing about ordering locally, even though it’s more expensive, is that it doesn’t cost much more to pay for Express Post and even though last Friday was a Post Office holiday, and I didn’t order the items until last Thursday, even with yesterday being a nationwide public holiday they were still waiting for me!  The service from Janine at Colours Down Under really rocks!!!  While I still have one pair of Qsnaps and a couple of threads on back order (needed for the border of Winter Snapperland), I’m absolutely thrilled that I now have another couple of Qsnaps to use for my projects and not having to remove every project every night (especially those that won’t take long to finish) – oops a couple of charts jumped into my shopping basket as well … Scatter Christmas by Shepherd’s Bush and Simply Halloween by Waxing Moon Designs … gotta make the most of the postage right? LOL.

Rightio, on that note it’s time to call it a night and hit the hay … a bit later than expected, but that can be blamed on Season 2 of Fringe and the need to start today’s challenge piece (but more so on Fringe, as I wanted to see the last episode on the DVD, which means only one more DVD for Season 2 to go!) 😉

  1. Nice stash haul! I’m thinking I need a bigger set of Qsnaps.

    Good luck with your Crazy Challenge. I’m sitting that one out.

    Happy New Year, Anne!

  2. You have some lovely things in progress!! We love Fringe at this house, too…they have moved it to Friday nights, so I hope it continues to survive (normally a Friday night slot is the kiss of death!)

  3. Great Progress! I haven’t picked up a needle yet this year…I’d better get hopping. For me the stitching will be slim this year…too many other projects I think. Love to watch your work however. You amaze me.

  4. Love Q snaps, you can never have too many of them in my opinion! Great progress with the latest challenge start.

  5. Happy New Year, Ann. Good luck with the Challenge – look forward to seeing the finishes roll off your (turbo)needles.

  6. Wow, you are making great progress with your challenge. I love seeing what everyone is stitching. Nice stash additions too. :o)

  7. Love the Ladybug design, what a cute project! Good for you, getting your q-snap inventory beefed up for the challenge. I may need to do that too. So far so good, but I think just a few more sets would help things along. Love the new charts you picked up! The witch on the Waxing Moon design is a cutie!
