Update on 2 projects and more mail....

Here is my 3rd progress picture for my current W.I.P Seaside Treasures :) The sky is now completely finished - damn was I glad about that - I was so sick of stitching with 3 shades of blue :) Towards the end - in the last grid I was counting down the squares :) Ha-Ha - Very sad :) I was so excited to thread some red onto my needle and start on the lighthouse :)

I am still loving stitching on this so much - Some days I wish that I didn't have other crafts that also called to me - as I would love to spend more time stitching...especially on this piece :) Sorry about the crinkles - I thought whilst I had the camera out tonight I would take some progress pics for you... and way too lazy to get the iron out at this time of night!!

Next comes the progress on the littlest princess's cardigan. I am roughly 5cm away from having this piece (the back) finished :)

and finally some more mail :) Hubby ordered me the Aurora Cabin cross stitch kit for mothers day... it finally arrived today :) This will be my next cross stitch start :)

It looks like its going to be a BIG project and a bit complicated - this will be my first project that has blending filament... I hope I am up for the challenge?
A freebie from the company - I presume since he spent over a certain $$ amount? A cutting board, cutter and a scrapbook retro tag maker...

You may have gathered that I found the camera?? Yep it was in the bag that we take with us to the beach etc... that holds the endless bottles of water, the sunscreen etc. I don't know why I didn't think to look in there before? DUH! I have lots more things to share with you so stay tuned for more posts to follow... just not tonight - its 10:37pm and past my bedtime - ha- ha!
So on that note - Night night and I will talk to you soon!!!

Well done on finishing the sky. It's always nice to start a new colour. makes you feel like you're getting somewhere. You new kit looks great but a lot of work.

Lovely Seaside - I'll bet you were glad to see some red again! Cardigan is darling, too. Will be interested to see your new start and progress. It'll be so pretty.

Your progress on Seaside Treasure is looking marvelous! I know what you mean about being called to other things, that is why it is so hard for me to spend anytime learning to knit, I am scared that it will take away from my stitching! LMAO!! Lovely cardigan progress!! Also love the new stash!!

Your projects are looking lovely :o)
It's been great watching them progress.
The tapestry sky is beautiful and that cadrdi is going to be so pretty when it's done. I really love your coasters in your previous post. Might try and make some of those and some place mats as you suggested on my sisters blog, good suggestion that.
Many thinks for all your lovely comments over at mine.
Hope you have a wonderful week

p.s. the crochet pots I made are my own pattern (made them up as I went along) if you like me to put up a tutorial sometime in the future just drop me a line over at mine and I'll be hapy to give it a go.
