A Finish and a WIP

Finally, Photobucket is working for me this morning, I've been trying since Friday to upload these photos.

This is Bee Pinkeep by Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needleworks, from the January issue of the Gift of Stitching Magazine:

and the most recent pic of LHN's City Stitcher Country Stitcher, from the SAL I'm doing with Kath:

I've been thinking about what my stitching plan is going to be for the first few months of 2007. Over the past month or so I've stitched on whatever I feel like at the time but once I've completed one or two small projects I'm going to back to my "normal" rotation which will go something like this:

Monday to Wednesday - bigger pieces (Titania and the Christmas Blessing Angel), week about during the month.
Thursdays - Stitching Leporello
Friday - Sunday - smaller projects, Christmas ornaments, exchanges, gifts, needleroll stitchalong.

and somewhere in there I'm going to be SAL-ing with my kiwi stitching pals, Kath, Lisa and Pat, on JBW Design's Advent Calendar and Lizzie Kate's 12 Christmas Blessings. Another of my goals this year is to "finish" things more often and I might even try to set aside one weekend a month for finishing. I'll be working on Leanne's House more regularly this year and have thought about using my free Friday afternoons for the quilt.

Back to work tomorrow, its amazing how quick the holidays have gone now they are almost over :) I'm going to spend the rest of today finishing up one or two jobs around the house, before it gets too hot, and then get our business bookwork up to date :)

Hope your weekend is going well!

LOL! I was wondering who would be the first to stitch the LHN/CCN pinkeep from TGOSM! Great job! I sent your latest issue of Just Cross Stitch and a gift to you yesterday :-)

Your bee pinkeep is looking just lovely.
I admire your effort to stick to a rotation....and I look forward to your progress on Leanne's House - I have all 10 packages from the BOM sitting in my cupboard and I don't think they will see the light of day in 2007...next year maybe ;)

The little bee pinkeep is so cute, I really like the colors. Your City/Country stitcher is looking good too. Good luck on your rotation. I've tried to do one before, but I always just end up picking up whatever is calling to me to work on instead.

Your stitching is wonderful. Congrats on the finishes. I have Titania in my stash, I'm not sure I'll get to her this year, but definitely next.

This is the 2nd bee pinkeep I have seen. I do keep forgetting that I have taken out a sub with TGOS so it might be in the pipeline.
Your WIP looks fab. Good luck with the rotation. :)
Take care. x

Your LHN is looking really good. I love your bee pin keep, I think I might stitch that one soon after seeing yours.

The pinkeep is really cute! I love the color combinations of the rose pinks and greens. Those are the "unofficial" colors of my living room. :-)
