I've spent all morning playing on Spyro but 2 of those hours have been trying to beat one boss!!
I reached the point of wanting to throw the controller across the room so I've switched it off, I can set his feet, head and right hand on fire but I struggle with the left hand and of course the two times I have done it and gone on the next bit of beating him he gets a nice new shiny health bar while I still have my almost gone one.
I know exactly what I need to do but I jus can't do it :(

In other news, Chris rang me to say that The Riddle had arrived safely and she thinks it's beautiful :)

Now I'm off to have some lunch and pick up Zoe's UFO for the afternoon instead of making cards to take with me tomorrow

Riddle yet again

But the last one for a while, I'm off to the Post Office in a while to send it back

It now stands at 55 hours and it's just about half done. If your in the UK and going to Harrogate at the end of this week stop by The Nimble Thimble stand, say Hello to Chris and tell her you saw it here :)

More Riddle

I didn't get much stitching time Thursday, Friday and Saturday so it wasn't worth doing a daily update, this is from this morning before I started. I have to post it back tomorrow so want to get as much as poss done today

My new puter is now up and running but Vista doesn't like my scanner and Lexmark haven't done a new driver for it cause it's old so I'm now on the digicam and the pics won't be as clear for a while until I'm used to playing with new software

Riddle update

It's coming along quite nicely don't you think?
The flower pot on the right has my first ever Queen stitches on it and they were alot easier than I thought they'd be

Feeling pleased...

With myself right now :)
For quite a while now I've wanted to add a Blogroll but everytime I've tried I just couldn't figure out how to do it but this afternoon light finally dawned and it's now added (although it's taking it's time to update, I fixed a spelling mistake and added more blog's to it)
I know it's a simple thing but when your not very technical minded and you figure it out all on your own you can't help but feel pleased

Floral Update

This is the pic I should of posted last week before TW Monday and it's how it looked at the end of TW October, I didn't work on it much during the month because it was just too complicated for my grief stricken head to cope with

So last Monday (the first one of Nov) I got 4 1/2 hrs in and combined with a couple of days at the end of Oct it now looks like this

I'm hoping I'll get it done this month then I'll just have one block left to do in Dec to meet my goal of finishing by the end of the year

A new WIP

Drawn Thread's The Riddle

I'm stitching it as a model for my framer (Shameless plug coming up) Chris of The Nimble Thimble

For those of you in the UK going to Harrogate later this month you'll be able to see it in person there although it's doubtful it's going to be finished by then
