Told you I'd done more

I said when I posted earlier this week that I had already done more and here's the picture to prove it. I've finished the page, woohoo! There were only about three colours left when I posted last, so thankfully this was actually quite an easy page finish, there was just a lot of it. So, this has now gone away for a while :-( along with the majority of my own projects, and I'm now on gift duty for a while. Hopefully it won't be long before I can get back to my own projects again, I have lots of progress on existing projects and new starts planned so I need to get busy!
Happy Easter everyone, hope you have lots of time with friends and family and stitching/crafty time as well, sadly I'm working most of it so I probably won't have much to show.

A little late

I meant to post this about a week ago, and didn't quite get round to it, but there's actual progress to show for once, so I'm posting it, despite the fact that I'm now further on than this. Once this page is finished I'll be on quite a long gift run, so it'll be a while before I have anything of mine to post on.
I promised myself a new start after this page finish, which will still happen, but it'll be a wedding present now rather than one of mine. But that'll happen eventually (give me a couple of months to feel less over-whelmed by the gift crochet/stitching).
But anyway, here's Heroes and Heroines, this is page four and I can't believe that it still doesn't look like that much, I can't believe that I'm working on something so big that you can hardly work out what I'm working on.

And we continue...

 The blanket continues, and I've actually got progress to show, I still think I'm being a little optimistic with when I want to have it finished by, (late May), but at least I can see actual progress, but look at all the ends that need darning in, it's so depressing. I was being really good to begin with, but as you can see that's sort of died off a bit. Oh well.







And Heroes and Heroines is growing, I've finally finished the frame on this page, and I have done a little bit of cream on the peacock, but it doesn't show up very well on the picture. But next week I hope to have new colours included, it's all fun and exciting.
And I've got all those new starts planned, so I really need to finish this page off at some point.

Mmmm, orange

Only a little bit of progress this week, although since it's only about two hours work at least it's visible progress (oh how I love tenting). I've been spending more time on my crochet this week as suddenly there are a lot of projects in my future (hmm, where have I heard that before), but I try not to post my progress on crochet too often as I'm aware that it's not the most interesting thing to see, look, another stripe of colour. And I can't believe that there's still so much orange on this project, it's taking over the world. Sadly, I don't think I'll have much time for stitching this week either, couple of evening events at work, sigh, but I hope to at least be able to finish the frame off (best laid plans).

The reason my crochet is the the fore at the moment is I have the blanket I'm making for my grandad, the one for my mum, then three friends with babies in my future, and a friend who is also a (much more talented than me) crocheter asked me what I was doing. Erm, no idea, ooops. So there's a chance that I've spent more time today that I should have done mulling over ideas and colours.
Talking of which, she (the more talented one, henceforth known as Fluffy, has recently started her own blog which is full of lovely stuff, and can be found here! She's only just started out with her blog, so it would be lovely for a few more people to see it.
