The last update for October I guess

This is my progress so far, which considering the workload of study isn't too bad! lol
The sampler will definately not be completed in time for the anniversary on the 9th of Nov...
Still I'm not too worried as they really will not care! lol
I am also still studying but also I'm card-making too as it will soon be christmas! Luckily this year I have opted for decoupage again, it is not so time consuming as stitched cards but really quite as charming.
So anyway I will sign off now then and get back to my stitching! Later peeps!

The latest update!

Well this is my progress on the sampler as of yesterday (friday) evening. I'm really starting to make real progress now that I got into the swing of the design, lots has been happening and I found myself rather unmotivated with the project. It would seem though that my stitching bug has now actually returned at last!
I am actually finding myself wanting to get this update done so that I can actually turn of the PC and stitch. Which is a first really for a long time now. :D

I thought that while I was here I would actually use the updates to show off some of my completed projects as well. This Subaru Imprezza was for my son Kris who is car crazy to say the least!! lol
I find that I really enjoyed stitching this as it is very different to what I tend to stitch :)
On that note I shall leave you all for now and get back to my stitching! Til next time xx

A month gone already???

Wow so I promised weekly updates and now before I know it a month has passed.... Time as they say waits for no man! Or in my case woman... lol

So anyhow this is how the sampler is shaping up now, needs to be finished in less than a month, YIKES!!! And I still have uni work to do as well. But that said, I do spend inordinate amounts of time on Facebook or playing online games! lol

My idea is simple. Set myself a target each week for my craft and post here if I made it or not??

So by next friday I hope to have completed all of the lettering and a good amount on the black inner border..... And hopefully made a few cards as well, christmas is not too far away now....

Life is still wicked crazy right now, and I'm hoping that I can try to settle into a bit of a routine, mornings devoted to study and evenings to stitching, that will leave me the afternoon free for whatever I choose to do...

OK then folks..... until next week!
