Stitchy Update

I have been a little better at getting through some of my stitching this week so here are a few progress pictures.
First up is my (almost) finished part II of the SAL mystere du Printemps from Marie ~ it's missing the lake as I currently have no idea where my DMC 3752 has wandered off to!  Don't you just love it when that happens?  I'm sure it's in that most wonderful of "safe" places ~ shame that my memory will not unlock the key to where that is currently.  So far this has been a lovely quick stitch and Part III is due out on Saturday ~ hopefully I will be able to get on with it fairly quickly and also locate the rogue & elusive 3752 by then too.  I'm enjoying doing these few spring things of late as it makes a change from the Christmas things that I have committed to for the whole of this year.
Next is my New Year's Day start ~ Simple Joys from LHN ~ this was a gift from the very lovely Barb for my birthday last year.  This is growing faster than I expected it to as I am stitching over 1.  There was a blip at the end of last week due to an unwelcome visit from the dratted green croaking creatures ~ I managed to stitch 2 full and 1 partial flower using the wrong colour!  All is well again now though as I managed to undo the mistakes and have completed two of the flowers again in the correct colour.  I am working on adding some words of dedication to my Lovely Mum to this piece.
I have now finished my March ornament for the Christmas Ornaments All Year Round SAL ~ I just haven't remembered to take a photograph yet!  More thought should have been put into my March stitch, Jolly from Miss Crescent Crowne, as for March we chose our own theme, if I'd looked at April's theme ~ snowflake ~ I probably would have chosen something else to stitch.  Nevermind I think I have more designs with snowflakes I can use.  Hopefully I can share a picture of my March ornament with you soon.

Till next time.

Great stitching! I put things in "A Very Safe Place" all the time. It amazes me how many hidden very safe places this house must have!

You've done loads - beautiful work.

I always seem to lose just one colour too, it will appear when you don't need it or have bought another
