Are you a slave to the stitch??

Ive seen this poster a couple of times at the train station but today it was in my magazine. It always makes me laugh! I thought all you stitching bloggers might appreciate it LOL Today my startitis kicked in again. I really wanted to start something new whilst watching the Wimbledon final. So i did. Here's what i decided to start and here's my start (not the most exciting picture but i just wanted my new start recorded!)My RR is sidelined for now. I figure once the RR gets going it'll be all i spend my time stitching on, so i want to do some other pieces in the meantime. I might finish my sqaure at the end, we'll see. Here's where im up to with it anyway
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. We were at our friends house for dinner last night and tonight im going to a house warming party!

Great start to your Fairy. That's a really pretty Mirabilia. I used to stitch Mirabilia's a LOT. lol. But that was before I found blogland and got sucked into all the cute smalls and samplers and, and, and, and..........lol.

I'm trying to be strong and not get Cirque des Cercles until I've made a dent in my current WIP's and 'to do's' that I already have here. It's so hard though. It's such a great project. Can't wait to see how your's comes along.

Your petal fairy (I did get the right fairy name I hope) will be lovely, and you did get a nice start on it. Your RR is looking good to.

I'm intrigued by the poster, but not sure I understand it??

How cute the Feather fairy is and what a great start!!!! Your LHN RR has started to grow beautifully, my plan fell through and not a stitch did I do on mine, the little stitching that I did do was on the Quaker SAL.

Take care,
edgar

I suffer the same affliction which is probably why i have 20-plus projects to complete. I almost fell victim again this weekend, but was saved when I found a project that I forgot I was doing but am very excited about (it's a tea cup of course!)
