Naughty me...

Here's me posting my updates on the other blogs, I hadn't done here.
On Saturday I did some stitching on Treasure Hunt, No pic as yet!

And Sunday I re-started Bramble and the Rose by Ink circles for the Ink Circle stitchers Blog
I am finding it more enjoyable stitching on the lighter fabric over two than I did on black over one, I am not sure what I am doing with the black one yet, I may someday finish it when I get daylight lamp.
The fabric is lighter than this photo shows.

 I also have stitched on Beatrix Potter on Saturday whilst at a friends house, and finished that circular motif at the top right
I have to say that a lovely friend is going to try and finish Isle of Sark for me as it has been a thorn in my side!I wonder if that is why I want to stitch again!

I love meet ups

I have booked my Travel lodge for April for the A Crafty Natter Meet up in Hampshire, and also looking forward to going to the Needlecraft Haven Meet up in march. I do love these meet ups, you get to stitch and chat with friends new and old, learn new things and also see wonderful stitching that everyone brings in to show. It is certainly hard to resist news starts when you see all the beautiful things people are doing. We also have exchanges and raffles. Also will be at the Derby meet up in October time as well!

I am trying so hard not to buy anything new, there are lots I want to buy at the moment, so I am going to try and abstain from buying for a month. So that's Charts, Kits Fabrics. I do hope I can manage it.

I have stitched on the Winter mandala, not enough to show though, I may have another go at crochet, I have the wool and hooks, just not the concentration at the moment. So it's not as if I have any excuses at the moment.
I must admit normally about this time of year I get enticed into sal's and suchlike but I am being good as I know I haven't stitched as much as I used to do!
Are you being good or naughty this year?

Oh I am sooo Bad, I still haven't sent on two PIF's to Tanya and Polly, I must do that soon. So sorry ladies!!
