Craft Show and Girl at Piano Update

Hello followers,  sorry its been a couple of months since my last entry, I know, I am slack as!!!!  Never mind I have actually completed a third page in my Girl and the Piano cross stitch.  It really doesn't look like much more has been done but I can tell you there are many hours put into her.    I am really enjoying it but must admit I haven't done as much as I would have liked to have done by this date..but never mind.  Hopefully 2012 will see a lot more progress.  This is the latest picture of her:

I'm still enjoying using the parking method and find that it saves me a fair bit of time.

Anyway I've also had a fun week.  Went to the Craft Show at Rose Hill racecourse with Mrs Dibble, the Crafty Princess and  Jen B, oh and the Crafty Princess's mum.  It was a great day and having my car there was even better, because it meant I could sneak out once I had bought all my little gadgets and didn't have to stay all day like my other crafty buzzard friends, God love them!!!  These are some of the things I purchased:

Now I know I didn't want to be like the Crafty Princess and have too many projects on the go at once, but this was just tooo cute to go past.  Thanks to Crafty Princess, I have started the project. Thanks again for doing the zig zag on my beautiful paw print aida cloth and drawing the graph on my cloth so I knew exactly where to start etc.  Don't think I could have started the project with out you xxx.   This is my progress so far:

Ok there's not much to see so far, but a little of the white paw on the fist kitty has been done and some mouth of the second kitty.  I just love the paw print cloth.  

Now here are some of my new gadgets,  woo hooo I love buying this sort of stuff:

Anyway thats about all I have to say for this entry,  once again apologies for the delay, will hopefully be able to do a fair bit more stitching now the summer has ended.

Thanks for looking and following my blog.  All the best,  Aunty Nene


  1. Just looked at the finished picture of this project and wow that is going to be an amazing piece of stitching - look forward to seeing it progress.

    It doesn't hurt to treat yourself to a new project and it will give you a break from the Girl at the piano.

    1. Thanks heaps Linda for taking the time to check it out. Yes I'm really looking forward to seeing a lot more done of the Girl at Piano.

  2. I love your work on Girl at Piano, the colors are stunning =)
    And your new start is so cut, that fabric is wonderful =)

    1. Thanks so much. Yes I think the fabric is cut too...

  3. OMG I don't believe it a blog post YAYYYY!!!!

    You're very welcome for all the above comments lovie. You know I will do anything for you especially when it involves cross stitch. The cat wahoo is going to look amazing. I thought the 2 paws that you stitched was the cloth and then I read your post. It's toooo cute!

    Don't worry you will never be like me with 22 wips at once. 2 is much more manageable and I agree Linda it's good to have an smaller easier one to turn to when you want to stitch but just not in the mood for big bugger of a BAP.

    Can't wait for more on the pussies!

  4. Thanks my little Crafty Princess, and yes 2 projects is a lot more manageable than 22. And it definately is a nice break doing the kitties for a change xxx

  5. Just wanted to tell you that I gave you the award "Liebster" =)
    I made a post on it on my blog =)

  6. Thankyou so much stitchstitchknit, when I get a little time I will try and post a Liebster acceptance speech (ha ha) and list 5 other folowers and the other acceptance conditions..thanks so much for thinking of me.
