Family Tree update.

I have worked quite a bit on the "Family Tree" stitching this afternoon. Knowing I was going to take a picture and post an update inspired me to try to do as much as I could! I am pleased with the progress on it, on the left hand side I have stitched to the outer border so I can see how wide the design is going to be. (See 18/06/08 post for the first draft!)

Looking at other people's blogs I see lots of them have a rota for their stitching. I'm not sure how well I can stick to one but I'm going to give it a try. The exceptions will be - fitting in my cards when I want/need and on Wednesdays at my Crafty Hands group working on either View from a Terrace or Noah's Ark. Otherwise this is my rota for WIPs.....

Week One - Family Tree (Last week so has ended today!)

Week Two - Summer Fairy and Ballerina (this coming week!)

Week Three - Warwickshire Map

Week Four - Lilliput Lane - Kendal Tea Shop (this is at moms so must bring home!)

When one is complete I'll add another into the rota! Not sure how it'll go but I'm going to give it a go. I choose the 2 for this coming week as I know my girls will argue that I am working on one more than the other as these 2 pieces are for them.

I also want to thank everyone for leaving nice comments on my blog, I am really enjoying my new blogging hobby and look forward to viewing many more nice stitching pieces.

Now I'm going to work on a few cards while Stuart watches the Euro Cup Final!!!!

I was hoping to do my cross stitch, but the boys wanted my undivided attention on the football! The family tree is looking good. Will be interesting to see how far you get with the other projects over the coming weeks

Hi Ginnie! Just found your blog so thought I'd say hello! Your family tree looks fantastic!

I have a rota and find it works quite well for me although I do sometimes stray from it!

I love that family tree!

I should post pictures of my cross stitch work too. The thing is, sometimes I stitch all day, and then not for weeks. And I'm not really sure how to make a good photo of my work. Another to-do thing on my list :-)

Thank you so much for leaving such a nice comment on my Blog Ginnie :o)

Your stitching is beautiful and I especially love the Family Tree. What an heirloom this is going to be.

I tried the formal rotation thing once. Didn't work for me. Things kept coming up that had to be done by a certain time. So now my rotation is whatever I feel like stitching on. I don't like to have too many projects going anyway. I like to get a project finished. Family tree is lookin good.
Have a great day.
