A surprisingly productive week

As the title says, I've had a surprisingly productive week (and a strange inability to spell productive this morning, I've had to correct every time I've typed it). First up is Tale of the Red Swans by Aimee Stewart, and this is actually my target for the year achieved, which is a little disappointing, because it means that I've now put this away to work on something else. This is four partial pages, which I'm claiming adds up to roughly one page. Unfortunately is doesn't look like much yet, but you can just see the beginning on the clouds in the top right, and also the tiny beginning of what I'm assuming will be a fish on the 'top' left. 
Secondly I've finally finished the third page of Pride and Prejudice. This is a lovely design, but most of this page has been cream. I like one colour stitching and it's been perfect to take to craft group where I don't really have to concentrate on, but I just seem to have been working on it for ages. I suddenly realised last craft group that the patch of white was finally getting smaller and so when for a final push this week to get it finished! 
And finally Heather by Hannah Lynn has returned to the frame, finally! I love working on this and have rather missed her. I've set myself a target of another row on this this year, and the page that I'm on this week, which seeing how quickly she normally stitches up (one of my few tent stitch pieces) I think should be totally achievable, so much so that I've got it into my head that I want to add one little accent of colour, just one strand of her hair or the hair ornament as well. Anyway, we'll see how I get on. I'm off this week with nothing major planned so I've set myself some (by my standards) fairly ambitious stitching targets. With any luck I'll have another productive post to make last week to show for it!
