Too Many Starts and Not Enough Ends

I can't believe it's the middle of May already.  It's been a hectic few months and I haven't had much time for doing any stitching. I've recently moved house - again.  That makes twice in a little over a year.  So it's been a busy few months of packing boxes and then unpacking boxes at the other end. 

I thought I'd give you a quick update on the stuff I was working on before I moved. My stitching stuff was among the first bits to get packed up so I haven't had a chance to look at any of these since the end of February!

First up, my little lion:

Last time I worked on this, I was concentrating on filling in the gaps in his body.

Next up a half knitted sock:


Well, its more like less than a quarter of a sock really. 

And lastly,  poor old Winnie The Pooh:

I've made no progress whatsoever with him.  I got off to a flying start as its such an easy kit. The bit above only took an evening so I was sure I would have this finished in no time. It's easy to see the different shades in the colours and it's on 14 count aida so the holes are easier to see.  I can't really blame the lack of progress on moving house as I'd stopped working on him before that.  He just isn't grabbing my attention. 

Just lately it seems that I am starting more projects than I am completing. I'm going to need to knuckle down and get some of these projects finished or I'm going to get swamped under a pile of UFOs!

Bye for now
