I'm back!

Excuse the radio silence, we've been away. We went to Japan which was my absolute bucket list trip and our trip of a life time for our honeymoon. It was an amazing trip (and I will put up some pics and stories at some point if people are interested)  but it does mean that I haven't really been able to do any stitching. We got back about a week and a half ago, and Thursday was the first time I've managed to pick my stitching up. I've got a little bit to show, I'm so close to finishing her shoe off, and her knee is also now complete. I'm going to optimistically say that I'll finish it this week (hahaha) but I've got a couple of mid week days off this week, so it's looking hopefully.
Hope everyone has had a good month in my absence and happy stitching!

Too ambitious by far

I knew I was being too ambitious about where I wanted to be when I next posted on this, why do I do that to myself? It's been busy at work again, so I've been leaving a bit late, and that's cutting in to my stitching time. I've got a bit to show though, the toe of her sneaker and her elbow are more complete than they were at least. I'll try and be more productive next time.

It's not a cheat...

It's not that I've been working on a project other than Celara before I got my page finish, it's more that this project is much more portable and so it goes to craft group with me, or comes out when I don't want to pull my frame out with boxes of thread. And as I've got a room (staircase?) finish, I figured now was a good time to post an update on it. I really need to go back to the throne room, I don't know why I seem to be avoiding it, so, hopefully by next (distant) post on this project will be the throne room finish!
