Yes, as you can tell from the previous post, I do love the Ink Circles designs. Yes I went through a phase of doing these type designs, but I really need to get them done, would I do them now, hell yes, I still have some waiting to be done.
I am going to be working on Cat Lessons and the Chinese design Hubby brought me back from China. That's the third photo down.
I also want to start the Tiger from Yiotas as well, but I have a couple of exchanges to do first!

Yes Jo I do get bored hence the UFO status LOL
Shebafudge I used to work that way, then I found the internet then it got seriously dangerous for me and my bank card!!

Thank you all for stopping by!!

This weekend is April's IHSW and I am looking forward to it as myself and Lucy are in Nuneaton for the Needlecraft haven Meetup, staying over in Nuneaton and travelling to Melton Mowbray to the Scout Hut Crafters meet up or if you are on facebook see here.  I really do enjoy these meet ups and seeing what everyone is up to.
So the only excuse I can possibly have is that I was talking too much LOL
