Hola mi amigos !!!!!!

I can't believe I'm in Spain and I have a finish to share. Luckily my hotel has free wifi so I can use my ipad to my hearts content. My mum and I are having a lovely time. This is our second day (first full day) and the place where we are staying (Tossa de Mar) is lovely. It is a small medieval Spanish town and on the beach there is a castle !!!!! It's soooo much fun here. The weather is ok. When the sun is out it is very hot but it has been a bit cloudy today and there is a very chilly wind so we have been a little cold at times which we were not expecting.

When we got here yesterday we went for a little stroll and then went back to our hotel room as we were tired from all the travelling (we came by coach - a thirty one hour journey). As soon as we got it there was the most tremendous storm for an hour, so I had the chance to work on one of my projects I have brought. This one I started on day six of the Crazy January Challenge and only needed a little work to complete it. It is a cute design and came as a freebie from the Oakhaven Designs Yahoo group.

Here it is at the end of January Sixth ...




And here it is completed ...




Happy Stitching from Spain Everybody !!!!!!

Two Crazy Finishes !!!! Whoop Whoop !!!!!

See what happens when you get working !!! Not one but two finishes !!!! I finally finished the third page of Fractal Bookmark 292 so that is one of my crazy January aims completed ....








Then instead of moving on to HAED Freebie Trick or Treat page one like I mentioned I was supposed to ( I am picking my crazy January projects with an online randomiser ) I decided to finish off my day three January project which was a Teresa Wentzler freebie called Hummingbird. Here is where I left it on January the third ...




And here it is completed ....









I decided to work on this because I am going on holiday in a few days and didn't feel like I could settle into a big project like the HAED. I will start that when I get home. After the events of this year my mum and I are going to take a little break to Spain for a week. I am really looking forward to it. I have packed a couple of the smaller projects from my Crazy January Challenge (Funky Fox and Sweet Spring) and I want to stitch on them when away so I might have a couple of finishes when abroad !!!!!!! If I can I will post an update, if I can find some free wifi (not sure if hotel has it).

Happy Stitching Everybody!!!!
Todo el mundo feliz Costura !!!!! (Used google translate for the above to translate the English, apologies for any inaccuracies!!!)

Greys, Greys and more Greys !!!!!!!!

Here is my progress on Fractal Bookmark 292. I absolutely love this design as it is so striking but I can't wait to finish the page and move on just to get some colour in my life !!!!!





Speaking of colour all my threads for HAED freebie Trick or Treat have arrived so I am in the process of bobbinating them all !!! (Why does that take sooo long?!?!?!). I have also bought a little treat. I fell in love with this in work the other day. It's a bit kitsch and I LOVE it, it looks good on my sewing table:

I used a random number generator to pick the next project from my list which was the first page of HAED Freebie Trick or Treat. However I don't have all the threads to complete this so I am doing page three of Fractal Bookmark 292 whilst I am waiting for them to arrive ! I will update with this one soon.

Progress at last and some Stitchy enhancement !!!!!

Firstly I would like to thank everybody for their kinds words after my last blog post. It really meant a lot and reminded me what a wonderful community the sewing one is.

I have made more progress on Fractal Bookmark 322 page one. Not far too go now ..... amazing what you can do when you actually work on something !!!!!!





I have also been stash enhancing !!! I love the hand-dyed threads from The Crafty Kitten and I buy the limited edition ones every month they are released. The last couple of months have seen some new additions to the threads she dyes and as soon as payday arrived I just had to get them. They are so gorgeous I just had to share ....





They are yummy!!!!!! and once again fantastic service from Dawn.

Happy Stitching Everybody !!!!
