Stitchy update :)

I finally managed to take a pic of my progress on Small Things this afternoon - haven't quite got the first page finished but am not far off. Didn't get a lot of stitching time in this weekend. I've been out and about today doing errands which means I can have a quiet stitching day at home tomorrow (once I've taken the kids to school and walked the dog!).

I managed to put some time in on Fire last night as well as a few stitches this morning before I headed out. She looks a bit skew-whiff in the pic but it's because I haven't loosened my Q-snaps :) I am not sure whether I will continue on her tonight though or pick up Shimmer. The latter has been neglected this week and I really want to get back to her but I am really keen to get the first page of Fire done too *sigh* ... decisions, decisions.

Tonight is NCIS night on telly so maybe I should work on Shimmer which has larger blocks of one colour (well, where I am on the chart at the moment there is!) while that's on and then go back to Fire where I am working on the detail stitches. Yes, I think that's what I will do :)

I tucked the fabric for Sea of Roses out of sight this afternoon so hopefully that will keep another start at bay ... for now - lol!! I need to get some stitches in on Medieval Town Mandala too - maybe I could devote the morning to Small Things and then put a few threads in on MTM in the afternoon?

My fabric for An Open Heart still hasn't arrived :( Last I checked it was on backorder waiting on shipment from supplier. I will check the status again tomorrow and if it hasn't changed I will send SB&B a quick email.

Oh, and I managed to find Serenity on DVD today while out doing my errands. Yay!! I found it in the DVD section in the little supermarket, of all places, where I do the bulk of my shopping!! Snapped it up in an heartbeat and I'll be watching it tomorrow for sure :) Guess I won't need to haunt Virgin every week now waiting for it to come in - lol! I bought Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire this week too - had to go in to Carrefours to get some dog treats via the DVD section (of course!) and there it was - lol!

Now all I need to do is wait patiently for the Inspector Lynley Mysteries to come out on DVD and hope they find their way out here too :) Should think they will as there are a lot of BBC series on DVD available here.

Better go and get dinner happening!

Oh Gosh Mel! You have been so busy with your HAED projects! I am so impressed!

I am happy dancing for you right now for your locating Serenity! What a place to find it too! LOL

Your HAEDs are looking wonderful. I remain constantly tempted by Fire, so I'm enjoying watching everyone else's WIPs.

Yay on finding Serenity! Wonderful movie. Hmmm, maybe it's time for a rewatch at my house.

I used to love the Inspector Lynley Mysteries Mel, so fingers crossed they will turn up over the in Dubai for you to watch.

Your HAED's are coming along really well.

Small Things and Fire are coming along beautifully - I just love the colours in Fire ... and I haven't commented yet about it, but I really like the new background of your blog :)
