Well, the cross stitching part anyway! Now I have to sew it into a stocking, which I hope to do this week sometime. I like these Lizzie Kate designs, they stitch up quite quickly once you start them! This was part of my Commonwealth Games challenge with one of my cross stitch groups, and I have managed to finish this one beforethe flame is put out...just! Now to concentrate on some more Flip It's!

Finally got around to starting the Xmas stocking I had hoped to finish for Christmas 2005! Only 3 months behind.....This is what I have stitched last night and snuck in a bit more this morning while waiting for a chocolate cake to cook! I really like these Lizzie Kate designs. I love how quick they stitch up.
I am hoping to have this stitched up before the flame dies at the Closing Ceremony for the Commonwealth Games (a challenge from a cross stitch group I am involved with). I was hoping to watch lots of the Commonwealth Games and cheer for the host nation! Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi! But we have no coverage here....not even a mention on the UK Sky News.....perhaps it has to do with the medal tally?? But I am getting cricket scores (cause they look like they might win LOL). At least I can get the latest news on the official website http://www.melbourne2006.com.au/Channels/ It's not the same...but better than nothing!
Horray!! It is finally finished! I am so glad to get this one over and done with! Help, it has a partner as well. I won these 2 designs in a competition....the saving grace of these patterns by Lauren Tucker is they have no backstitching!
I have some other stitching to do and will work on some Lizzie Kate stuff, then think about doing the second picture to this one in the second part of the year!
I have no idea what I will actually do with this finished picture, but at least I can cross it off my "Things to Do list"
