I've been trying a new rotation recently, well that was the plan anyway. I moved three projects from my stash/WIP cupboard to my stitching bag, and the plan was to work on those three until one was finished, then replace it with another WIP etc etc. Unfortunately it hasn't worked and I have worked on just one of them and not touched the other two! Guess I must be a One At A Time stitcher at heart!
Anyway, the project I have been working on is one I started back in January for Debbie's Crazy January Challenge. Here's how it should look when finished (borrowed from Madame Chantilly's Etsy store)
Singing in the Rain by Madame Chantilly
And here's how it looked when I last stitched on it earlier in the year. As you can see I had to change the hen colour so it would show up on the fabric, and I really didn't like it.
Anyway, while I was away with Rachel and Ingrid last month we decided to throw it in the bin and restart on some Fabric Flair! I selected Cloudy Blue 28 count evenweave and here's how it looks today!
I'm so happy with it! It just needs the words and some backstitch so that Mrs Hen is pulling the chicks along on their trolley, and then it will be finished.
Here are the other two projects from the Stitching Bag, they have had a little bit of attention but not for a couple of weeks!
History Timeline by Bothy Threads
And a close up of the three new figures, Tudor Queen, Stuart Guy and Georgian Gent! (minus most of the backstitch)
Pretty Little Paris by Satsuma Street
I would like to have all three of these finished by the end of the year, but I am desperate for a new Christmassy start! Either this free chart by Just Another Button Company...

Or maybe both?!
Have you started your Christmas stitching yet?
Until next time,
