Here is my progress pic for this month. When I started this I decided to use up the left over floss from the other Tuscan Garden piece I have stitched. I think that the pale blue floss I used up from the first kit is of a different dye lot to the one given in the kit I'm stitching now, so there might need to be some frogging here at some stage. You can just about make out the difference in the photo.

I have to confess that I have not done any of my Murky Manor UFO but have done some work on the UFO I have been stitching for Yoyo's Christmas SAL. The first photograph shows where it was at the beginning and the second the final four santas which I finished yesterday. I have still to make them into ornaments but that can wait for a while. It looks from the blog as though most people are like me and found it difficult to work on UFOs perhaps it is the coming of Spring which makes us want to start new things. I must knuckle down to Murky Manor next month. Happy stitching everyone.

Break time has finally been rolled up. I'm doing his legs first. There is such a huge amount of brown that I thought it'd be best to try and make in-roads into that part. Wish me luck. I have done back stitching on it before I rolled it up as I really didn't fancy having all that to do at the end. I also spent a full evening sorting out the threads that had fallen of the card they were on. They looked like a huge pile of spaghetti.
Until next time. Looking forward to seeing some more UFO's.
Happy stitching to you all.

Quick update on Break Time I'm slowly getting to like this. I have met someone who has seen this completed and apparently when finished it looks really good. We shall see. I think it's going to be quite some time though. Still onwards and upwards. Happy stitching to all you UFO-ers out there.
