Pics as promised!

Well its been a busy week.

This last week Lauren has continued her recovery. I have had all sorts going on too. A pre school place for her, and my middle daughter's birthday. She had a party for a few friends and crafted jewellery boxes and picture frames and thoroughly enjoyed herself.

My work: Well. I have started the QS Wizard of Oz (Gustafson) for my Sister's birthday. I am doing this one cross country and using up threads from my stash while writing a thread list for the remainder. I have Too. Much. Stash. I am trying not to buy... sitting on my hands... but anyway. Here is a so far pic.

I see the start of a tin man!

I am working this on an 8" hoop so you can understand the scale. its only a small piece but one over one on 25 count makes for small stitches!

This is one WIPocalypse piece, the other of course being Avarice. I said I had put her down while working on Wiz but.... I didn't... hehe... so I did a bit more on her.

Getting through the confetti slowly. I can't wait for the gems to be finished!

So that's my WIPocalypse pics. There have been a couple of fabric swatches for cards too, but I am not showing those as the recipients may well read this!

I got a rather nice gift this week. 2 RAK charts. Lance and Guinevere (Fenech) and Sistine Chapel. Both HAED pieces. Takes me up to 10 now!!! 

That's it for now



  1. I have that Wiz of Oz chart on my HAED wish list. I am looking forward to watching you stitch it!

  2. Great work! I wish you many time for stitching!

  3. Poor Nicola. You only have ten?!? I have about thirty, lol. They're addictive!!! And I have eight more on layaway!!! I know, I know, I'll never finish them all. But I like to collect! Your Avarice looks good. I have that one to do too. I have Lust in progress, and all six of the others are waiting in the wings. Impatiently, I might add, lol. Great progress on your Wiz piece too. I can see the tin man too. I can't wait to see some more progress on this!!

  4. Thank God you only have 10 charts! ;-)
    I have 15 or so and I always tell myself not to buy so many charts because I have so many. Then I look at various blogs to notice that all the people own more charts than I have, so I think "It's not that bad, you can buy another one", which results in buying a chart and then again I go like "Oh my! I have so many charts! My mind is so weak!"
    Reading that there are people with less charts than I have keeps my self control up ;-)

    I love your work on Avarice and the Wizard looks amazing =)

  5. Hey :) I'm a new follower!

    Great stitching projects :) Looking forward to seeing more. Happy Stitching!

  6. Hi

    So glad to hear that your daughter is recovering.

    Your stitching is lovely!

  7. Hi Nicola,just joint your blog.

    Glad to hear DD is home.

    Nice projects you have on the go.

  8. Good progress. I still don't understand how you gals can work on those pieces with the solid stitching. Keep up the good work.
