Mini bit of stitching

Okay, it's not much, but I started one of those tiny freebies that comes with the British stitching magzines that I love so very much. It's a cute little hedgehog named Edwina. It's a hedgehog...what's not to like? *grins* I do so love those little Country Companion hedgehogs. I wish that the charts were more available in the States.

I certainly can't afford to have them sent from the UK as often as I would like. I'm trying to get a job doing customer service work from home. At least I could be in a comfortable chair that way and I wouldn't have to get pretty for anyone other myself.

Still Not Stitching...

I had really hoped to get back to stitching by now. Maybe this week, since Rhiannon's gone, I might actually get the urge to stitch. I've got everything for Girly Gothic set up. I'm finding the chart for The Night to be a little on the daunting side. It's HUGE!!!!!! I've never had a chart that big before and I'm not sure how to tackle it. I hate to go and pay for small, more workable copies when I've already spent more than $20 on the original chart itself. I know that the oversized chart is one way for the designer to protect against bootlegging, but holy cow! Think about the people who are buying this monstrosity and attempting to stitch from it!

I have had serious stitching block for the last month. Vanessa thinks I just need to start a new piece. Now I'm not sure which one to start! I have fabric and floss for Girly Gothic QS. Maybe that would be the one to start. Of course, I also have everything BUT the PTB's for The Night. I have that incredible blue Italian linen just waiting to be stitched upon.
