Getting Closer

Day 8 & 9, man I love weekends where I can stitch... although I recommend that if you choose to stitch in the sun, remember sunblock - 20mins caused a little pinkness (nothing too bad though)

Day 10 & I am VERY happy with the result & my progress. Still have to make finishing touches to House, & then will need to add words... probably some very classic old-school looking font.

More Days


sorry, have been playing with Blogger - probably not something I should do, but that's how I roll... anyhoo here are the updates for the last week:

Day 4, 5 & 6 (although there was at least one day somewhere this week where I did none - gasp!)

Day 7:

I think he is coming along a lot better than the last one :)

The House Challenge

Day 3 was taken at night, so the flash makes it look whiter & now I am starting to add in the colour... must buy those extra threads required today!

Been busy, actually no, been slack/unmotivated

I aim to fix this, but must have the lulls which then boost the productive time. I'm not one who can go along at a steady pace all the time - so you get what your given.

I did have a birthday this week & my Mum got this amazing card made just for me :)

Made by a lady in Timaru I believe... what is super amazing is the inside:
Yep, I can definitely see how this is made, but seriously awesome & I Can't even imagine what this lady's spare room must look like!!

In the meantime I have decided to take my new car (did I tell you I bought a new car? & I mean NEW car) to Auckland & back to see The Twits on stage with the Auckland Theatre company ( in December a week before I drive south.
Before I go I have one challenge for myself - to complete a previously failed attempt at House. I started last night:

but why oh why when I have so many threads already that the two main ones are the ones missing???
Apparently I am a fast stitcher, so lets put that to the test over the next 3 weeks!
