Dum Dum Dum, Du Du Dum, Du Du Dum

Don't get the title? Look at the picture to the left and try it again!
He's finished, yay! It feels like ages since I've had a finish, so even a tiny one like this makes me happy! Had a rainy lunch at work yesterday, so I worked on him then, and was so close to finishing that I couldn't resist bringing him home to finish last night! No idea what I'm going to do with him now that he's finished though. 
Barely any progress on Dragon Rider though. In fact I did the red for the turrets, just so that I'd be able to see some progress for this week, although if you really squint at it (ie practically close your eyes), you can see it starting to take shape. The red gives you the turrets, and I can just about make out the shape of the door way on the castle, although that might be hopeful imagining. It's international hermit and stitch this weekend, so I'm hoping that I'm actually going to be able to make some progress that's visible this weekend.

And finally, this is the start that's going to replace Darth Vader, this was what I did at Harrogate Craftwork Group on Thursday, and it kinda looks like a slightly sunburnt sea lion with a beach ball at the moment, but I'm hopeful that that will soon change and actually start to look like something else, for instance a person. I'm an eternal optimist!
And finally finally, I'd like to introduce Kerry at Stitching Sister, who does some lovely stitching (and is also looking forward to retirement where she's hoping to massively up her stitching output), so please pop along and have a look at the pretties.

Darth is on my to do list - we are currently decorating our spare bedroom and turning it in to what we call a "Geek Room" so he will fit perfectly in there for us!

Happy IHSW!

Darth looks great. I'm not sure what to do with him either but I still may have to start that soon! Your HAED is coming along well. I like your little person. Your craft group sounds like fun.

I like your work on Dragon Rider and your new start (I must admit - I do see a teddy bear holding a beach volley ball ;-)

Now I'll pay a visit to Stitching Sister =)

You could make him into the lid of a cookie box and send him to a friend LOL.

Dragon Rider is coming on well now.
