Mini-week stitchy update


Helloooooo!

I thought I would post my small stitchy update. Rather than rotating more wips I stuck with the sampler and the Noah's ark. 

I spent about an hour on Tuesday on the sampler ..,


And I stitched that alphabet in purple on the right.

I didn't stitch Wednesday :( but yesterday I managed another hour of stitching but this time on Noahs Ark...


All in all I'm pleased for two hours worth. I hope to get some stitching done this weekend but I'm off to London today to a gig (Skunk Anansie) to see a band I have seen before and really like. I'm seeing them in a venue I haven't been to before so that will be fun and instead of battling the night train I booked a hotel room way back in October! I am pretty excited because the hotel is two minutes (literally) from Paperchase! I will share any purchases next week...hehehe

Sunday I will be hiding in my house and hopefully stitching! But in what? Sampler or Ark? I'm stuck in sampler because now I have to pick a new colour and some of you may remember my sampler colour woes...I am still contemplating frogging the o, p & q on the left-hand side but will most likely leave that till the very end. Colour suggestions welcome! 

Ark wise I am heading towards the elephants as they are large blocks of one colour so great for doing with the TV on.

I hope you all have some fun stitchy things planned :)

  1. Which ark are you stitching? That looks very similar to a huge chart I stitched for my nephew when he was born. I worked on it solidly for a year!

  5. Hope you had a great time.

    I think the alphabet looks terrific as it is, but it has to please you, not me. I'm working (slowly) on a Noah's Ark as well - Precious Moments one.
