Never underestimate the power of a long train journey to get you stitching. I managed to get about three hours work done on the Angel of Love, though it didn't actually look as though I had done much because I think most of the time was spent finishing off one thread, finding the next colour and starting the new thread. Each colour was only used for a few stitches so it was fairly hard going.

I should know better than to take fiddly patterns on train journeys.

Well it is 8:30 pm and I am still at work so I doubt very much that I will be doing any stitching tonight.

So much for getting my butt into gear.

Ho hum!

This is not so much a blog as a diary of what cross stitch work I am doing. I hope that by having to update regularly where I am upto with my projects that it might actually encourage me to get some of them completed. However it is also possible that pigs will sprout wings and fly first.

I have several projects on the go at any given time. Currently the main projects are:

A tapesty cushion of a siamese cat, for Julie Hasler's "Needlepoint Cat" Book

A counted cross stitch of Lavender and Lace's "Angel of Love", and

A counted cross stitch of Lavender and Lace's "White Lace".

These are all fairly big projects that I expect to take quite some time.

I also have a number of smaller projects that I sometimes work on it I am travelling on a bus or train, where a larger piece would be inconvenient.

It is unlikely that I will be doing any stitching tonight because I am in the process of upgrading the various computers, but I will fully describe each piece as I record the work I do on it.
