Bits and Bobs!

I haven't got much to show for the week so far. I have been in a strange stitching mood and have only tackled little bits and pieces!! I have stuck to my rota but haven't any update photos yet.
1 - LK Housework - I have started and I stitched a few words so far.
2 - Dusky Dreams - I stitched some on Monday night - but have a load of french knots coming up!! Otherwise this is close to being finished!
3 - Warwickshire Map - I have started the Crest but it is in just red/yellow and white and very boring.... but I will persist!!
What I have had the urge to stitch is little magazine cover kits that maybe I have started a long while ago and then put away. Here is an example of 2 I have completed and can add to my list!! The first is a picture of some cute bunnies with their Easter Egg!! and the second is a very pretty little pattern to make a pin cushion with, although I may make it into a scissor fob!!

I also found an old Tinkerbell cover kit that I had used the chart to stitch the design onto some waste canvas to make Becky a t-shirt when she was about 8 years old!! So the aida was still in the kit.... so I started that!!
Last night I worked on my SAL, but at home not at stitch club as Stuart was out. I did ok but I was really tired, so could have done more - never mind.
Today my friend Julie at work treated me to lunch out.... we had a good old roast dinner, turkey, beef, roast pototoes and veg etc.... then followed with a lovely chocolate cake and chocolate sauce. It was lovely but I am so stuffed and tired now I can see there being little sewing done again tonight!!
Anyway I think I'll go and make me a cup of tea and see if I can manage some sewing!!!

Oh Jayne
I just love the fob cover. It is so bright and cheerful and that pattern works so well on the dark aida.
The bunnies are cute too

It's sometimes nice to do some of the little things, especially when you have so many big projects on the go.
