Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Well I had a great Christmas! We all go around to my Aunty Evelyn's for Christmas dinner and her kids and their kids join us! It's always a loud affair and this year involved Turkey, Presents, a dart gun, a crossbow and a wrestling match...Was one of the quieter years!

So now it's past Christmas I can show you all what I stitched for my brothers Christmas card!!

Courtesy of  Missy over at Dork Stitch She made me patterns for Yugi and Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh! My brother (a 23 year old man) plays the card came and watches the anime. He squealed like a little girl when I gave it to him!

Tiny little progress on ToT. I'm at the point on Pirate Queen when I change over to the second magazine and I have to sit down and take proper care to line it up right.

Gill Aldus (my favorite designer) has a new design.... Anemone, a mermaid. She's a beautiful coral mermaid, Vanessa over at magic monster has done the model on PTP tempest.

How could you resist a face like that??? Well I couldn't!

On PTP crystal Lagoon.

So as new year approaches I have to start thinking about the WIPocalypse. I had an extensive list but now I'm thinking a short list thats actually manageable. So I've decided on Pirate Queen, Morning Fae, Anemone, ToT and Chatelaine deep blue mystery!

Maybe next post I'll show you all pics of my Christmas stash haul and the story of how I blinded myself with my new lamp!

IHSW December

Last IHSW of the year folks! My Word where has the time when? I didn't have too much time to stitch, one of the many evils of working in retail over the holidays! However I did have a little time to work on the Pirate Queen. Also stitched on a couple smalls that I shall post when the receiver gets them!

I'm still loving working on her and don't really want to pick up anything else! In other news my youngest brother Michael has returned from University in Iowa for a month over Christmas! Very glad to have him back ! It's very hard having him so far away on a different continent! With him being back not sure how much stitching I'll get done as I'm busy spending as much time as I can with him!

Yarr!!!! Where's the rum???

Not loads done but enough for me to want to post an update! There's some backstitching to do on her gloves, gun and belt but I'll do that when I finish this section of the pattern!

The belt is unbelievably blingy but I must be spoiling myself with the PTB I've been using because going back to Kreinik was a NIGHTMARE!!!!

Not quite ready to put her away again just yet,every time I pull her out I fall in love with her all over again!

The Zombies are Coming.....

Been a busy person as of late! Have starred in a Zombie movie! My brother and I helped out a friend who makes films! I must say my day as one of the un-dead was one of the most fun I've ever had!

The film is called I am Alive and actually not a film it's a series I'm told! I have learned I can not fall on demand, which is very strange because I fall without prompting all the time!

On set getting my make up done how very glamorous!(Those aren't contacts by the way for some strange reason my eyes show up very light blue with that camera!)

Not sure when they will be showing the first episode but I'm very excited to see it! (Thats one of the directors doing my make up he's very yummy! Was not at all a hardship having him stare me in the eyes and stroke my face all day!)

Not much stitchy news I'm afraid. Did some more of Morning Fae and the backstitch on her face.

I've signed up for Chatelaine Mystery Deep Blue Sea. My first Chatelaine and to get used to what it'll be like I've been working on a couple of mini mandalas! Not much of them done but I'll post pics when I've got something substantial  to show!

Picked up Pirate Queen this week! Enjoying working on her again!
