So, on Friday I said that I was going to hibernate and work on Dragon Rider this weekend, and posted a picture of where I was starting from. On Saturday I couldn't pick dragon Rider up for some reason, just kept found myself doing other things, so I cured the itch, with a new start. Ooops! I know it doesn't look like much at the moment, but please welcome Cut Thru Noah's Ark from Bothy Threads. This has been calling to me for a while (I do love Bothy kits, and have wanted to do a Cut Thru for ages) and I can mostly justify this as a new start. In my New Year targets I said that I would start either an emergency birth sampler or an emergency wedding gift to try and get ahead of the game when friends start announcing things. Welcome my emergency birth sampler, and it's just so pretty and they're such fun to stitch, and I need portable projects for craft group, and I'm very much aware that I'm trying to justify this but I like it and it makes me happy so nyah!
And it did do the trick, today I have been working on Dragon Rider and do actually have some progress to well, so I have managed something on the intended design as well, albeit possibly not quite as much as I had hoped. But it's given me a kick up the arse to get on with it and hopefully in the next couple of weeks I'll be able to show off a page finish. There are lost of nice blocks to black to work on so the last bits of this page will hopefully whistle through.
Right, I'm back to work after a week off, so I'm off to make as many hot water bottles as I can find (I was so cold last night) and actually try and get a decent nights sleep.
