*Looking furtively over my shoulder*
Don't tell anyone but I just bought myself an early birthday present.
Train of Dreams by Randal Spangler for Heaven and Earth Designs. It's WAY smaller than Queenie - Like 307 000 stitches less... only 10 000 odd stitches instead of 317 500. I think I'll be able to knock it off over the course of next year.
Jacob wants me to stitch this one for him so it's on my 12 in 2012 list... which reminds me, I must update my 11 in 11 list...
The 11 in 11 have expanded somewhat, so the list is now more like 15 in 2011 but I'm doing ok with actually getting some finishes under my belt. I had intended this year to be the "year of the finished UFO's/WIP's" and to a point, I'm achieving that goal. I wasn't supposed to start anything new (except Queenie) but then I hadn't planned on joining three exchanges, finding the perfect sampler for Mum or discovering a new friend and being invited to her three year old's birthday party!
LOL, now come on, don't tell me you don't know exactly what I'm talking about!
I have come to the conclusion though, that at heart, I really am a OAAT girl. The idea of a rotation works perfectly in my head but in reality, I only manage to work on one at a time. I had to get the cube finished before I could get anything else going and now I'm on the fob and scissor case, I have no desire to pick up anything else. (I desperately want to post photos of the above, because I'm very proud of my efforts so far but as some of you, dear readers, are also involved in said exchange, I don't want to give the game away!)
Anyways... if any of you are hankering after a particular HAED, I suggest you pop off and take advantage of the 30% off - it ends at midnight tonight (July 18) - go on, do it! I know you want to!
Just don't tell anyone I told you!
