I've started - have changed the stitchery design (still from Natalie's book though) and am enjoying it. It's great to have a must-do project that has a deadline (so it gets done) and is for ME!!

It is fun to stitch, I loved it

I have traced it onto my favourite linen and chosen my thread, not quite started the stitching. It's going to get me into trouble starting another stitcher, I love them so much and get very addicted. Vignette is going to have a little rest. Racing the clock this time, not going to be making it in the last few hours lol

I have changed the stitchery too but it is one of Natalie's from another of her books. Going to continue when I stop playing with the computer. Hugs....

I have my fabric selected (from my stash which I have so grown out of), about 1/4 of the way through the stitching....mine is for a friend!

On today's list of things - going to change the stitch up though - thinking of using tea is good for the soul from another project as its going to be a gift for a friends birthday, and the bag will hold some tea and treasures!

Traced and underway. Planning more for the weekend. I'll be selecting fabrics on Monday.
