A Multiple Update - shock horror

I've got a selection of updates this week... the odd thing is, I'd say that I actually haven't done much stitching this week, because I hurt my neck at the beginning of the week (thank goodness for living with a chiropractor), and so I couldn't stitch for a couple of days, because I couldn't bend my neck. So suprisingly I've got a lot more progress  to show than I thought I would. First up is Winter's Majesty, which is the latest rotation piece, started after I put Chakra Fae away last weekend. I've only put a couple of colours in, but it seems to have made loads of difference. And there are no white flowers on this page (woohoo!) so there's a chance that I might actually enjoy this page rather than threatening to throw it across the room, although it's still quite half stitch heavy. But after injuring myself I had to put this away for a few days as I just couldn't work with the huge frame balanced on my knees like I normally do.

Secondly, Come to the Dark Side, which I think might be the most popular thing that I've ever worked on. As I've mentioned in the past, he doesn't get much love (and even less update posts), because he lives under my desk at work for rainy lunches but I bought him home last night so I could do the colours that only had half a dozen stitches (cos I didn't want to take those to work for just a few stitches). I do love him. Don't think it'll take much more now, it's only the greys on Vader and the moon, then the blue border, but it depends on how many rainy lunch breaks I have in the next few weeks.

And finally, because I couldn't work on my projects on big frames, and because Vader had been left under my desk at work, I needed something a bit smaller to work on in the mean time. I haven't done much, because even then I couldn't stitch for long (this week has been absolute hell for me... I didn't realise how much time I spent stitching in the evening... I've spent a lot of time playing Castleville on facebook this week), so it's only a tiny update. Can anyone guess what it is? If anyone does I'll be absolutely stunned. I'll give you a clue, she's a HAED! This will be my new travelling pattern once Vader is finished, and so will possibly be living under my desk at work and will defintely be going to craft group with me.

I also have a travelling pattern for when my daughter plays hockey matches. It makes me look forward to sitting on a school field instead of moaning about it.

Winter's Majesty is looking wonderful. Vader's still adorably cute. And I'd say that's a HAED QS. *grins* I'm gonna say Genevive of the Pink Hair since you recently added her to your stash.....

I hope your neck gets all better soon! Winter's Majesty looks wonderful and it's impossible not to love that cute Vader! Did you work on it on May the 4th? That would be the perfect way to commemorate the Star Wars day!

Oh no, Kim! I hope you're feeling better! You got a huge amount of stitching done for being injured. Keep at it, but don't overwork yourself!
