Big Ben in the background and a bright pink cab to the right!

London cabbies aren't just black anymore - check out the bright pink one on the right!

A big thank you for all the wonderful comments about Snowflake - they are very much appreciated :) I spent a couple of days working on Fairy of the Sea but will wait until after the next time I work on her before sharing a progress pic. I picked up Plum Gothic yesterday so will spend a few days with her now.

May I present ....

Snowflake QS (Selina Fenech & HAED)

Snowflake QS
Original artwork by Selina Fenech
Charted by Michele Sayetta of Heaven & Earth Designs
Stitched on mystery 25 count hand dyed evenweave from CountryStitch
Started: Mid September 2005
Finished: 24 May 2007

There were many months where I didn't stitch on her at all because I kept getting distracted by other shiny sparkly things!! Anyway, she needs a nice warm bath and an iron, then I must get her and Girly Gothic framed!!

Thank you again for the comments everyone :) I'm off to dig out a very neglected Fairy of the Sea from WIP box and work on her for a bit. I did plan to spend a bit of time with Verdure but I need a break from detail stitches for a couple of days!

Another page down!

Thank you everyone for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments - I appreciate them :)

At the risk of being boring here's another Snowflake QS update :p This is pretty much all I'm stitching on right now so until she is done there won't be much else to show stitching wise :) Hopefully the next progress pic of her will be the last one!

I finished page 2 a couple of days ago (I'm not doing the pages in order) which means I have one small page to go. I may be a little ambitious in my thinking but I'm hoping to have that final page done this week ... we'll see, there's a bit of detail stitching in that area :)

Thanks for looking!

QS Wednesday

It's Quick Stitch Wednesday on the HAED BB and I will continue to work on Snowflake. Here's my current progress ...

My progress as at 11 May 2007

It was the HAED BB Challenge SAL for May this past weekend and I was supposed to be working on Verdure but I'm so enjoying Snowflake that poor Verdure didn't stand a chance! I think I may stick with Snowflake until she's either finished or I get bored with her, whichever comes first :) I will make up for lost time on Verdure then.

It is starting to warm up quite considerably over here now - ick! I have a feeling this summer is going to be very hot!!

PhotoHunters "Childhood"

I finally got my act together last week and joined the PhotoHunt - it is something I've been meaning to do for ages! Anyway, this week's theme is Childhood.

Breakfast fun!

**I've been having real problems with Blogger Photos and some sites on the internet in general - probably my ISP being pernickety! Thank goodness for good 'ol Webshots!**

I love this pic :) DD had a couple of friends over for a sleepover a couple of weekends ago and they were being silly (as girls can be!) during breakfast when I took this photo.

By the way, it's Nutella on DD's friend's nose :)
