a new look and some stitching

I thought I would try something a little different with my blog again... hope you like it. I'm still getting used to it, though I know its not a big change, I do prefer the three column templates better. However, this will be good for the next little while.

Onto stitching... I didn't get a lot of stitching done on the weekend, so I don't have a lot of progress to show on the SAL but here it is... I am enjoying this and enjoying the colours. I hope one of these Sunday's I'll have more time to actually sit down and work on it!

For the rest of my time last week, I kept on going with the canvas project, so here is where I am on that one. I still have quite a way to go before its finished, but I'm enjoying working on it right now. Here is a picture of the whole thing, and you can see how much I've already filled in and how much I still need to do before even starting the backstitching parts.

Since I've reached a good stopping point, I'm going to put this aside for a couple of days and go back to my alphabet blocks as those sort of have a deadline (hopefully Christmas) that needs to be met. As it is I'm only half way through the letters but I still need to make a few "filled" in squares as well.

We've also had guests here since last Monday, and they leave tomorrow. Its been fun and nice to have them here, it will also be good when they are gone. The house can go back to normal, and I won't have mountains of dishes to do (they all like to cook and all like to use lots of dishes! - since I don't cook, I'm usually on clean up duty ) Our poor kitty has also gone into hiding (she doesn't like people very much) since they've been here and I hardly get to see her!

Anyways, that is it for now, I'm heading back to stitch...

De jó, hogy újra itt vagy, Katica! Ahogy olvasom, el vagy látva bőven feladatokkal!
Nekem tetszik a blogod új ruhája és az a SAL is szép színű, amit készítesz. Legyen minél több időd a kézimunkára!
