Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Good news first: I now have a plan of attack for the Christmas presents. Make my mum’s tetris shapes(I want to fill the piece of plastic canvas) in July and August, design and stitch the design for my friend in September and October, make another friend a set of form-a-line cards in November (depending on when my dad next comes up here and can drop off a piece of foam for me to use to punch the designs), and then stitch the 5 little birds for my aunt’s Christmas present in December.

This (in my head) is completely reasonable, and even more than that, I think I can get it all done by just working on them during the week, so I even have the weekend free to work on my own stuff! So at the moment I’m concentrating on the OUAT sampler, as I would love to get it finished this year!

So while this is wonderful and means I have a plan of attack, which means I will actually (hopefully) get everything done on time this year…*fingers crossed* it does mean that everyone here is going to be getting very similar photos to these two every week:



OUAT10(Btw: Wohoo! I finished May, and hopefully I’ll finish June tomorrow, so I can do some more on the outline next weekend! I’ll worry about July in August)

I don’t really mind posting the same things each week (with maybe from time to time a little knitting when I’ve had enough of the cross stitch!), especially if I actually manage to keep up this much improvement from week to week! So I’m going to try and keep this interesting for everyone by trying to get as much done as possible each week… cue dramatic music! And there will probably be times when I get heartily sick of cross stitch and decide I need to do some knitting (nobody mention the Cthulhu mittens…) so hopefully no-one will get too bored before Christmas…

  1. Looking forward to your progress pics ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You sound so organised! Can’t wait to see what your July block will bring, I will start guessing the fairytale now… hehe. P.s. I know Ive said this before, but those tetris shapes are awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. looking forward to see your progress.. Just wondering also what will your mom’s tetris pattern look like at the end.. *okie.. we got to keep it quiet here.* (cos is going to be a gift yah)

    • It’s just going to be the shapes, backed with some magnetic strip so she can use them as fridge magnets. I’m not going for anything fancy with it!
