A stitch in time...with very little time!

Evening all...just a quickie with a rotation update.  And I would like to thank you all for the comments you left for Cathey's chart.  I hope some of you will stitch it and enjoy doing so.  It's nice to be able to give something back.

Right, rotation.
 So far it seems to be working. I lost a lot of stitching time last week stitching up this freebie (see my last post or website if you want it). And no, still havent managed to get a decent photo..this was stitched on cream evenweave..honest guv!

 This was my rotation piece for week one.

And this is what I did.

Not a lot but more than I've managed over the last two years!  It's stitched on sand evenweave which goes to show how bad I am at taking photos.

I'm working on this one this week.

I'm not sure how much I'll get done because it's a really busy week with anniversarys and birthdays and sunshine..yes, we have had two days with a couple of hours of warm sunshine in the afternoon and there's no way I'm going to waste it so I've been walking.  It doesnt' last long before this rolls in!

Holmsey October's been released and November and December have been printed ready for the November release. That's it as far as my part is concerned.  All done.  You would think I would be sick to death of Holmsey Hare and Hare positions.  I'll admit that at times I felt like I could publish a book, the Hare Karma Sutra, with all the different positions I was having to come up with..(only without the sex of course..Holmsey is a perfect gentleman at all times)....but now he is all done, I feel kind of sad.  Very sad in fact.

October finds him enjoying the last of the harebells which are beginning to fade and some lovely endive which is just coming into bloom.  Perfect for some autumnal colour and for Holmsey to have  a sneaky nibble.

Happy stitching everyone!
