Well two evenings later and I have completed my DH's birthday card. He loves bears and wolves, so I found this cute realife bear pattern and decided to stitch it for his birthday card.
It's a design from a UK cross stitching magasine "Quick and Easy Cross Stitch".
Here's a photo !

My friend Kate has the Penguins on Ice kit in her stash that she started a while ago so I came across the same kit. This week we decided to stitch a penguin a week ! Here is my update. I had already stitched one penguin so number two is the cute one with earmuffs ! !

Well I completed one of the two squares that were left to do on my Calendar RR when it returned home. I decided to do the Mr Men & Little Miss Calendar by Bothy Threads. I did January when I originally sent it out and I completed the May square on 23rd January 2007 !
Here is a link to what the completed Calendar looks like. Photo on the right of the completed May square

I can't believe it's a week later already and I haven't updated this each day as I had intended !
(Note to self, must make more effort).
Well I have completed four more cross stitch projects since my last update and I am pleased with them.
I completed Lizzie*Kate's January Block Flip-It on the 7th January 2007. (See photo )

Well it's Saturday again sigh ! Where does the week go. As soon as I finish teaching at 3pm today I am going to settle down for a comfortable weekend of stitching and reading.
I finally finished a Wedding Anniversary Sampler on Tuesday for my parents Ruby Wedding Anniversary and succeeded in completing it a whole month in advance ! !
I have so many WIPS and UFO's that I am going to sort through them all this weekend and make a list of the ones that I want to work on to get them finished.
I am currently reading my way through Robert B Parker's Spenser detective books and have read 3 so far this year and am halfway through the 4th.
May have another update later today on the WIPS and UFO's.
