    looking forward to your start and seeing your WIP pictures

    Glenda is right as to the colours on both charts - it will save you so much money if you have repeats and sometimes you only have half a dozen stitches in one colour

    Waiting for the mail is killing me now! There's my Lady and Unicorn chart, Aida fabric for both, needles, and another pako needle holder on its way as of today also!
    I complained to my sister that since finishing a kit last week and ordering the Lady, I had nothing to stitch and maybe should start one of my mirabella charts I've had for ages, ( all 4 seasons Angels) she laughed and went to her linen cupboard and brought out a kit she had started in May 2000! Saying she had meant to pass it to me ages ago, she recently moved closer to me...Three kittens on a shelf, her older stitches have gone all fat as if washed, I took it home and got to work lol!organzied the threads, found a hoop the right size and voila!

ID:	6590it's so odd to just stitch about as I like lol but it will fill a gap till the mail arrives! Here's the actual front page picture, very cute I think, I'll finish it and give back to her Click image for larger version.

ID:	6591Poor chart had been locked away for 16 years! Talk about a WIP! I'm also trying very hard not to line grid it and work up down like I'm used to but really trying to just stitch the color and ramble around for once I guess I'll start a WIP page for it under the non GK tab

    Sweet picture Carmen, and you're making progress already! It's great that you've got something to keep you occupied until your chart comes. What are you going to do when it does arrive though - continue with this one or jump right into your new one? What a dilemma!

    LOL, I've got 10-14 days till everything is here, I'll probably be 60%+ done this little kit by than due to the anxiety of waiting! I will be jumping straight into my Lady and Unicorn once it's all here! I can use this kit to have in the living/tv room if I feel I must stitch more!
    I'll start my Marquis once this little one is done I think, I only wanted 2 going at once !

    I just have to convince the husband to either buy me a tv for my room, or give me the one in the bedroom !!

    I can stitch faster without a tv. Either that or I miss half of what they say and do on tv anyway.

    Oh, I absolutely must have the tv on, and probably louder than is necessary because I am concentrating on my stitching, but I can follow both of them.

    I love Netflix, re-watching a good movie while stitching gives me flow I find, I worked slowly on my kittens till the wee hours of the night tonight, watching more than stitching lol! I feel better now that the top line is set, the counting should be easier, I found out my sister had missed a few in both directions in different places and it threw me off in a few places but no one will ever tell a stitch or two is missing or added I'll adjust when I need to for that row I guess. Here's the days progress, I have a little kitten with green eyes and a top edge you can kinda see the new skinny stitches from the older fat ones.
