After all the fun I had Monday/Tuesday getting the car exhaust fixed have been working hard to catch up with my clients but, but, but.....Cant believe this.....On the way home from work today, the power steering pump on my car blew up, Aaarghhh........Cant be fixed til Monday so, yet again, I have another unexpected stitchy day & the start of a 4 day weekend. On a plus side, hope to get lots done :)

An unexpected stitching day!

Was ment to be working today but, had problem with my car exhaust so, popped down garage 1st. After ordering the new part & being assured my exhaust wouldnt fall off & was safe, I set off for work......Erm, about a mile down the road, guess what fell off. Anyway, after being rescued by neighbour (exhaust was still attatched by one little joint & bouncing down the road behind me) finally got myself & car home & settled down to an extra bit of stitching time on the BFs 'Goonies Never Say Die' piece.

Cactus & stitching dont mix!!!

No stitching for me the last few days. Had an interesting accident with a high speed flying cactus (that I turned out to be allergic too) but, on a plus, feeling less swollen now so, stitching tomorrow. Also, seeing little sis & going to hobbycraft & a new wool shop Ive been told about tomorow , plus lunch, the weekend is looking good smile emoticon

OCD stitching rant!!

OCD stitching alert!! 
Well didnt get much more done on this in the end as I ran out of floss BUT while stitching, I realised the letter 'I' was missing from the alphabet. 
Rechecked the chart/original piccie etc but, yes, I was right, the designer left it out. 
I couldnt stitch it like that once Id noticed, it would have always stuck right out to me so, did a bit of editing & have now squeezed it in even though I will have to leave one of the little hearts out.....Rant over xxx

Day 32, YEYYYY

Yeyyyyy, Ive done it, 32 starts in 32 days, now all Ive got to do is finish them this year!!  This one is 'I stitch to keep the voices quiet'.  Biggest problem now though, is trying to work out what I want to stitch on , so many choices :0)
