Some Stitchy Stuff :)

After finishing Woodland Sampler I decided to pick up Angel of Summer (L&L) for a bit and see how far I could get, here's my before and after pics

Really pleased with my progress on this and I'm hoping I can keep going with it until it's finished, I must say, the thought of all that beading is putting me off a bit. This will be my first piece with lots of beads, if you have any tips for me I'd love to hear them :)

I've also finished part 2 of the AAN Facebook SAL - Halloween Town. It was a hoooge chunk of stitching but a nice contrast to Angel of Summer as it's mostly blocks of colour whereas Angel has a fair bit of confetti.

Since my last post I've bought a slow cooker and become obsessed with it! I'm a fairly lazy person when it comes to cooking so I love the idea of piling lots of stuff in a pot and forgetting about it. The problem is I'm spending far too long browsing for recipes and deciding what to cook, also, all my favourites so far have been desserts, I'm going to have to start exercising :(

Tonight has been spent drinking wine and looking at random internet stuff instead of stitching and I'm doing a charity walk on Sunday (the furthest I've walked since this same event last year is from my work's car park to the office, wish me luck!) so I think I'll pick out something small to work on tomorrow, maybe the Mario sampler.

Hope you all have a fab weekend x
