Another Little Update

There isn't much to show from this week. I didn't get much done in the evenings, but was intending to make up for that yesterday evening during the Opening Ceremony. Sadly I got completely distracted by the opening ceremony, so only got an hours worth of stitching done before I got distracted.
Lots of ladies on facebook have done Olympic starts, which I did debate over for a while, FoF was calling to me, but I decided instead to set myself an Olymplic target... I want to get this page finished and the black on the 2nd page of QS Clara, I might be being a bit optimistic about how much I can do, but I'm hoping to have quite a good stitching weekend this weekend, so you never know.

I also wanted to show you this... Ice Blue Winter by Zindy Nielsen, which I've been completely in love with since she was released... I mentioned on one of the stitching groups that I was debating with myself whether I could justify buying her while the sale was on, and half an hour later she was in my inbox because someone had sent her her me.
I've got a few of Zindy's, both her Snow Whites, and now this, and I just think she's completely gorgeous, even if she does have 24 skeins of black... but that means there's lots of nice sections of non-confetti so she should be quite a nice stitch!

Any progress is still progress!

Ice Blue Winter is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing you stitch her.

I think the Olympics will be a great thing for us stitchers, provided we don't get too distracted. ;-)

Ice Blue Winter is lovely, but 24 skeins of black?! Wow!

Happy Olympic stitching!

Good luck with your Olympic goals, I'm sure you will score a medal. Us Aussies are not doing very well at the moment. (Pout pout).
I love Zindy's artwork and what a lovely gift Ice Blue Winter is, lucky girl. xox
