IHSW & TUSAL

I fell sick couple of weekends ago with flu, cough and headache so even though I took Monday and Tuesday off last week, little stitching was done. In fact, I'm still coping with a right nasty cough :(
Last weekend was IHSW for March. I managed to put a few more stitches in Stargazer. Truth be told, I could hardly bear to put her down. She's so much fun to stitch. Here's how she looks now.
Finished all the ribbons on her dress. More progress would have been made had there been less need to keep changing floss colours. Looking forward to work on her dress now.
Once again, it's time for TUSAL. For once, I'm right on time.
In the background are my much neglected books in my TBR (to-be-read) pile. As you can see, I'm a huge J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts fan. I think Roarke of the in Death series is the most scrumptious male character ever created.
Anyway, I digress. Back to stitching related matters, I've aquired a new SAL partner for my Magic Garden Sampler. Woohoo! Gillie has offered to join me as she has this design in her WiP list too. Now I'm no longer stitching alone. Yays! Now to find time to get to it. I doubt Stella would be happy if I leave her now :P
Happy Stitching!

I hope you're feeling much better now Veronica! This cold is a miserable one. I've been ill with it all week and spent a lot of time resting rather than stitching.
Stargazer is so very pretty! I can see why you wouldn't want to put her down.

I also have the Magic Garden sampler ready to go. I've been trying to get more finished on my other WIP before I start it.

Sari said...

I hope you feel better already!

The fabric in your Mirabilia is really nice. And so is the stitching itself.

Melanie said...

I love Nora Roberts but never really got into J.D. Robb.

Nicola said...

I do hope that you are feeling better now. Stargazer is awesome.

An itch to cross stitch.. said...

Stargazer is looking so beautiful, she's always been one that I like too. I know the feeling about not wanting to put her down, I'm like that at the moment with my halloween fairy.
Not good to hear you weren't well Veronica, hope you're all better now.
