New start - mini

Well i got this a couple of weeks back from Liz, and counldn't resist starting it.

It is mini - bed of clouds and i am doing it 2 over one in tent stitch.Due to xmas not alot has been done, but im sure once the madness is out of the way i will get stuck into it.This is the amount i have got done over the past 3 days (12 hours stitching time)

I have done the full width across, by about 11 rows down (except for a few stitches that will soon be clouds)

merry christmas every one, hope you have a good year

Just noticed

I just noticed that i have not yet posted about the kind women on the haed bb.
First off i got one from an anonymous person. World of the sea turtle.

Then on the 12th Dec Michelle got me the lovely Astronomy lesson, that reminds me of my two sons.
And on Friday morning (16th) i woke up to find two Raks waiting for me
mini bed of clouds from Liz, and floating lanterns from Simone. I feel so humble , with all these wonderful landies around me.Puts me to shame as i only had enough to give2 out this month :S.Oh well im sure their will be a few more given out before too long.

Now my rotation will be going up to either 13 or 14, i am in some serious trouble, but i am sure i will manage :D.

So after stitching for the past few days on flights of imagination, i realised that 1000 of my stitches are in the wrong place. So i frogged half of them, then after getting fed up decided to start a new project - Siberian forest.

I am really enjoying myself so far, and afterwards hope to move onto dryad.I love being able to just pick up a new project whenever i feel like it.

Hopefully ill have a picture to show you in a few days

Poll now up - please help me decide

SO i am sitting tonight wondering what should be my next HAED chart that i get. I know i already have so many on the go, but one is going to take a back seat for a while, as i have lost all intrest in her at the moment. So would like something to replace her with. The poll is already set up to the right of the page, but below are the pictures of the charts i like
 mini peacock lagoon
 siberian forest 
 emerald hawthorn & mini emerald hawthorn
 gypsy firefly

I really would love them all, but santa is poor this year, so only going to allow myself one of them.Thank you for your help.
