Back to stitching...

Hello friends...

Now rested after my epic night out with Han seeing James Blunt :)  A different story for Han though... even though we had seats in the venue Han has really suffered with her back, she has literally been in bed since coming back.  I hope with the rest she is having she feels a little better soon.

I have been stitching...

One of the designs from the Travelling Treasure Chest as I just could not wait... it was calling me to stitch it!

On the design its blue... yes its lovely in blue but does not match anything I have.  So I changed the colour.. OMG!! Who would of thought it would of been so hard?!  The design only calls for 3 colours and well I found it really difficult to 'find' 3 in my stash!  

First I tried the DMC colours I had...

could not make my mind up..even with help from my facebook stitching friends!

So then got the Anchor colours out I had... 
Settled on these but then as I stitched realized that the darker colour was not dark enough... so guess what... I changed it! lol

Here is what I have done...

I think I am much happier with my colour choices now.

Its this design.. a little closer so you can see..

I will post more as I go :)

Oh yes...

Remember this lovely design I found in one of my magazines..

I really love it... but for now its on hold.  I looked at my threads and well I have too many missing to stitch it.. so I tried to change the colours...  OMG!! This is so much harder than you think.

So for now... I am lets say ...thinking about it! lol

Do you know what?

Its the 1st December tomorrow... shocking!!
I am so organized... NOT!! 
I have no presents sorted, oh our tree.... yes we have a tree, its rather unique this year.. will post a photo soon :)

I hope your all well...
