Well thats my 1st weeks rotation progress, I can't say that I can get into the swing of a rotation, I keep wanting to stitch one of them more than another, so it might end up that I just do my own thing as always LOL!! - Sorry the pics aren't brilliant I did them all in a rush last night.

We had a wonderful weekend, it all started for me on Saturday when I went to help Bev stocktake a little at Fobbles, when at lunchtime Hazel who if you can remember senmt me that wonderful BBD pillow earlier this year which was so awesome!! - Well to cut a long story short Hazel was up from Derbyshire celebrating her wedding anniversary, and decided to give Fobbles a visit and as I was there I got to meet her in person, and she is as lovely IRL as she comes across on her blog, it was so nice to meet a fellow blogger/stitcher and I hope that I might meet up with her again another time, that would be lovely.

Sunday Mark took me away on our little bit of romance time and we went to Ambleside and stayed overnight, it was really lovely and for all I took my camera with me I didn't take a single piccy, but Ambleside, Keswick, Bowness and Windermere was beautiful as always, I know it wasn't far for us to go, about an hour from our side of the Lake District to that side but it made a wonderful change.

I couldn't do a rotation so I won't even try! More power to your elbow if you manage it. I'm so glad you had such a nice weekend and got to spend some time at Fobbles. One day I will get up there - the same time I get to spend a weekend in the Lake District. Lots of Love Patti xxx

Beautiful pieces, but I have to ask ... what does AMAP stand for? I know I'll feel silly when you tell me, but I'm so curious. That Quaker Cherub is right up my alley.

Brigitte said...

You have so beautiful WIPs on the go. Let's see which one attracts you most after a while, lol. I have the same problem with rotations, there's always one piece that I don't want to put down after a while and then the rotation is gone. But who cares?
You certainly had a wonderful trip through the Lakeland. It's so lovely where you were.

Deb said...

Your WIPs are all looking great. I give you a lot of credit for being able to rotate projects. I think I can, and then give it up in a week!

Julie said...

Super pics, you do choose wonderful designs to stitch.

How lovely to meet Hazel

Carol R said...

Terri(TerriBoog) said...

Fabulous rotation! Each and every project is beautiful!

Melissa said...

I don't know, Su - what is it with you? Everything you stitch just looks so wonderful!!!

Margaret said...

Oh my, I love all your WIPs. They're all gorgeous!

Nancy said...

All three are gorgeous Su! The colors on the Sheepish Designs piece are so soft. I know what you mean about wanting to stitch one thing more than the other - I get that way too.

Glad you had such a nice weekend. You don't have to go far to have an enjoyable time. Sometimes just a change of scenery does the trick!

Von said...

Rotations don't work for me very well either, not that I've tried very hard. :D Life's too short to keep a strict schedule on your hobby, at least for me.

Your weekend away sounds like a nice change of pace, and meeting up with Hazel was a real treat.

Nina said...

Every progress look beautiful, and your photos are just perfect! I like them :)

Susan said...

Good luck with the rotation. I can't follow one to save my life!

I agree - it's always nice to meet a fellow blogger IRL. It sounds like you had a lovely getaway.

Karoline said...

Maren said...

Your WIPs are absolutely gorgeous! And so tiny! Wow. Congrats on sticking with your rotation, even if one is calling to you a little louder than the others. lol

Natasha said...

your stitching is beautiful. I really love the Sheepish Desing. The colors are so soft.

I wish they were still around. It is always fun to meet up with other stitchers whom you really only talk to through the internet.

Have a fantastic Day
Natasha

Hazel said...
