Well that didn't take long, did it? I was so busy at work yesterday that I didn't get around to posting my Day 6 update, and surprise, surprise ... I very nearly didn't get to do one today either..... but we got there in the end!
Day 6 was a start on a lovely little Aussie Koala. This little darling is part of a larger design from Carrol Nielsen, but in this case I have decided to only stitch one of the babies.... you can see him on the pic below - he is the second koala. I adore Carrol's designs - she has the cutest little koalas in all sorts of Aussie style designs.

You may remember that I stitched one of these little cuties last year for Nia's little baby. The link is here if you missed that post or if you want to go back and have another look!
Day 7 was yet again another start... This time I started stitching another Halloween design - "Sneak Peek - Halloween" by The Trilogy.

I have never stitched on Shanghai Linen before... and so far I am loving the feel of the fabric. It is so soft.... I must admit though, I am a bit worried that it might be too bright for the "Sneak Peek" but then again it is a Halloween design... and what harm can a bright yellow/orange fabric do to a Halloween design??
The other interesting thing about this fabric is that is about 34ct.... so I am going smaller and smaller with my stitching! Don't think I will ever go back to 14ct Aida now after stitching on these beautiful linens and evenweaves!
So that's it for today.... I have no idea what I will start stitching tonight.... but so far I have managed to keep up with a new start each day, so I can see no reason why tonight won't be any different! Posting about it tomorrow might be a different story!!
