Not much stitching going on that I can show you as I am putting the finishing touches to my piece for Mii Stitch's Gorjuss exchange. Very sadly Mii has decided this is the last exchange she will organise as a couple of people have let her down in the Easter Exchange she recently organised. I hope the Gorjuss exchange will be a fun one and will restore her faith in stitchers. There are only three of us so less chance of something going wrong!
I have been stitching away on my Cut Thru Pirate Ship for Pirate Wednesdays which is a SAL with the lovely Jan. Here's my progress to date. I have started doing a bit of the dreaded backstitch!

I have also nearly finished my handbag stitching! This is a little piece that I carry round with me and I usually stitch on the train on the way back from meetings. I only have a bit of the backstitch to finish. It was a fun stitch with good quality materials as you would expect from DMC.

I was recently the lucky winner of the travelling pattern from Jeanette and it arrived this morning. This pattern was started on its travels by Cucki in October 2011 and has been to the UK, Poland and Australia. I plan to stitch on this tonight while watching the Eurovision Song Contest and hope to send it on its way soon...but what do you think of my floss choices?
I don't have any of the recommended flosses so thought I would have a go at choosing myself, but I think there is something missing and they all look too much the same. What do you think? Any suggestions?
I haven't stitched any more on my HAED. I think one week on and one week stitching other things will suit me for now. I still need to finish my Crazy January challenge pieces!
Until next time
