My name is Lauren and I am a cross stitch blogger from Australia.
I have just joined this site as a buddy and am very excited about it. I am currently stitching HAED "Mini Lily of the Valley" by Rachel Anderson.
Here is a link to my blog if you would like to follow me www.laurenstitches.blogspot.com
If you are wondering how I am stitching this:
Fabric: 25ct. Evenweave Magic Guide - White
Stitched: 1 over 1
I've been stitching quite a bit over the past two days and I wanted to show you my progress. The last 10x10 square I did today took me all day…literally. It was confetti madness!
As of 1/4/14 (Page One Progress)
As of 2/4/14 (Page One Progress)
I have now completed a total of 2300 stitches! I for one am pretty proud of that :)
Let me know if you like my progress. I hope all of your projects are coming along nicely.

It hasn't been that long since I posted an update so I'm hoping I remember how to do this. In between all kinds of crazy things (squirrels chewing holes so they can nest in my chimney and assorted other things) I have stayed warm by stitching on this afghan (Cat Afghan 18 ct Charles Craft Alphabet Afghan, though no alphabet) with either cat (or both cats) on my lap to help me stay warm. I actually did quite a bit on this one. Almost all of page 4 and page 5, which is just 3 columns wide. In terms of stitches its about a full page.
This is a closeup of what I was able to do so far:
This is the whole piece so far:
This is one of the most fun cross stitch designs I have ever done. Each square of the quilt is like its own little finish and it is hard to put it away, though other pieces and projects start to get very loud. Now I am off to work on "Burden" which is the Lord of the Rings design that I restarted a year ago. Trying to catch up to where I had been.
Thanks for looking.

It's been too long since I've been writing. That's not right. So I promise to do better.
I have worked a lot on Gothic. Five pages was added.
But then comes a new grandchild (in May), and I have put her aside.
Along with Sanne there is a new project sorted out for the new nursery. Midieval Shelf, from Spangler. I do not think I get it ready for the birth. But I will come far. 23 pages in 20 weeks is too much., Even for me
