Sisters In Stitches

Friday, October 13, 2006


I took the Chatelaine & petal fairy to the local show for judging today. The show starts next week, so I will let you all know how I go. Have finished another page on the Dragon ( he is a big sucker) & have started the next page. Hope everyone is having a great stitching week!

OK Mel

Fess up have a clone, right? To have finished all those projects-Santa's Magic, Firefly Fairies, and all that much of the draggie. Maybe there is something to this "don't start something until you've finished something else" gig. Shhhhhhh, don't tell Annette I said that, will you? ;)

I'm Baa-aack!

Had a good time-was very windy for a day and a half, but nobody and nothing blew away (mainly because we dismantled Luke's tent before this could happen lol). I took my Patchwork Sampler with me-I needed something fairly straight forward to take-this is my project that I currently take with me to the Guild each week as I need something I can stitch when I talk. I did knit when I was away-I started & finished a pair of fingerless mittens for Caitlin-and she loves them-she would be sleeping with them if I had let her lol. I also worked on my Mongolian jumper-the front is almost done, so only 2 sleeves after that to be done. I am hoping to get some up-to-date WIP pics taken in the next day or so..........tomorrow I have to wash clothes, shop for food, and take Caitlin to/from a birthday party, but I might get a little spare time for that.

What is this with Sooz & knitting?? Or is she madly stitching on Villa? Or maybe she has started something new? much has been going on this last few days I have been away-BB meltdowns, the Yarn Harlot got married.........just 5 days and everything goes berserk.

Mel-I need pics. I need to see the framed pieces and the dragon. It is your duty-maybe if you think of it as convincing us to finish things, it might spur you on to post some pictures-it is easy I swear.

Annette-I will catch up with you soon-we need to gossip ;)

Have a great time

Leonie, have a wonderful time, what stitching are you taking with you???? I have temporarly lost Sooz the the knitting bug, but I know she will come back to me. On the flip side, I got Petal & a Mini chatelaine back from the framers & I will be entering them both in the local show. Making good progress on the dragon. Its easy to see progress when you only work on a couple of things at a time ( are you listening Netts???????????)

I am still here......well, kind of

Just thought I had better touch base with you guys........... I haven't been online much just lately, so I hope you have all been behaving yourselves! (yes, ALL of you lol) It is the school holidays here and we are off for a 5 day caravan holiday (see my blog for more-but not much more-details). I will catch up with you all when we get back. Annette-I am thinking of you-take the best care of yourself that you can- and keep an eye on Mel & Sooz while I am away ;)
