Sweet Nectar

Forgot to add the first time that I have also updated HEAD's UP for 2010 with Leaf and Crabby Crush.

I have been working on Sweet Nectar for a SAL and thought I would post a picture of how this is looking.  There is a lot of 1/2 stitches and so it makes the stitching go fast.  I am coming up to areas though that are full stitches. This week should see me finish off another 10 rows. I will do a little backstitching so that it is not so overwhealming at the end.

I am going to change my background for this week as on the 28th I celebrate a birthday.  For those who want to know just how old I am, all I am say is "I'm 49.95 plus GST"  LOL.

This week on the 26th we also celebrate Australia Day.  When I got the Sunday Mail this morning it came with a free Aussie  hat which I wore when I got home.   They all laughed at me.  I can't understand why...LOL.

Friday night the Blueberry Friand Slice was enjoyed by everyone and they fought over the White Choc and Macad Slice.   I am thinking I might make another one today along with a Chocolate cherry Slice.  Am feeling a little lazy though and not moviated.

Here are my wasted times this week - not as good as last week - see all that cooking cut into my stitching time and what do I have to show for it except a few extra kilos on the hips.....grin.

  1. Leaf -           13.21
  2. Fallen Santa - 2.26
  3. Julia Flynn (Dear Diary) - 1.21 (This is a new start and will post a pic later)
  4. Sweet Nectar - 2.48
  5. Crabby Crush 2.26
Total =           22.22
Yearly total = 79.42

Hope everyone is enjoying their week-end and till next time God Bless.

Just found your blog - from your post on mine :) Your stitching is beautiful, I really like Sweet Nectar.

I agree cooking does eat (joke) into stitching time.

Sweet Nectar is coming along beautifully, it looks really delicate. As for your cooking it looked devine, I'm sure I put on a couple of pounds imagining eating it. LOL.

Happy birthday from another TUSALer! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sweet Nectar is awesome. Love the little hummers. What is the title of the WIP with the red eyed frog? Is it available commercially? I've got a pal that would love that!
