A Happy Dance and a new WIP

I've been trying to do this for a couple of days now but Blogger has been having one of it's I don't like you very much so you can read blogs but not post on your's phases, I thought I'd give it one last try before bed and wayhay it like's me :) (for now at least)
So the HD, as you know I've been working on Little House Needleworks Winter Wonderland for the SAL on the LHN/CCN yuku board and just before midnight on Thursday I finished it.

It's on Sparklies Frosted Midnight and I've used the called for Crescent Colours apart from the blue I subbed a GAST for that one as the CC was too pale for the fabric, I'm really pleased with it and it's my 18th finish of the year so far.

On to the new start, I decided a couple of days after we'd moved that a new house deserved a new WIP so I started the Quaker a 6 mains freebie by Gigi & Carinne, it's been sat on my printer for a few months glaring at me because I wouldn't start it. I'm using Lakeside Linens 40 count Navy Bean and DMC Colour Variation #4210

Mel has gone off to spend the night at a friends house before they both go off to Cadet Annual camp tomorrow so I have 2 weeks on my own without the Mum said only the way a teenager can say it that you instantly know they are after something. Tonight is my first night all alone in the new house (apart from Toby but he doesn't really count and is already asleep anyway) and it feels really odd, maybe that's why I'm still up at gone 1am!

Winter Wonderland is darling; what a fantastic finish. I love the little border on this design.

Great! A new start!

Wow~two weeks of being childless? You'd better invite me to at least one of your wild parties or I'll be mad! :op

*Happy Dance*
And the WIP is looking good!

Just as you get used to her being there she's gone again! So you'll get used to the peace and quiet again and then she shall return with a vengeance!!

Good luck with feeding Toby!!!!!

Sharon if me sitting here every night with my stitching can be classed as a wild party then hop on a plane and come on over :)

Heather, feeding him is the one thing I'm not really looking forward to doing but I'm going to turn the fridge on first and get 'em nice and cold first to stop the little buggers moving to much!
