I attempted to start my first-ever rotation this month. I was planning to stitch Jolly Old Fellow half the week, and L&L's angel of Hope on the other half of the week. I just can't do it. Once I started the Angel I started to obsess about finishing her so she could be part of my Christmas decorating this year, recognising that even if I stitched every waking moment for the rest of the year Jolly Old Fellow would still not be finished in time for this Christmas. Also, I had some difficulty adjusting to stitching on the larger-count fabric, so I decided to bite the bullet and work on the Angel till she's finished - which will be all this month, and probably at least the first 2 weeks in July. I'm expecting her to be at the framer well before the end of July. So, JOF is now officially a UFO ( my first ever in 20+ years of stitching!), and I won't be stitching on him for the next month or so. But as soon as Angel of Hope is finished, I'll be back stitching on JOF, so I would like to remain a member of this group. I really do enjoy watcjong all the lovely HAED projects growing.
