Baby Patchwork as of 07.01.12

I've been stitching on Baby Patchwork for the last few days and have now completed 2,957 of 11,068 which is 26.72% complete.  On the original pattern the name and birth details are done in cross stitch and look quite bulky.  I've decided to stitch the whole background in white and then back stitch the details, I think it will look better this way and will also enable me to fit more information in.  So here's the progress picture.

I've also completed part 9 of Living with Charm which makes it 75% complete.  I now have a deadline to finish this project which is spurring me on.

 I also had a lovely surprise this morning.  I received £100 of Hobbycraft vouchers after entering a competition in Cross Stitcher Magazine.  I had only said to a friend of mine yesterday that I sometimes wondered if anyone actually won these competitions - well I guess someone was listening and decided to prove me wrong.  The ironic thing is I took my Christmas money to Hobbycraft a few days ago and bought everything I needed so I guess the vouchers may have to wait awhile before I spend them.  I can't decide whether to splurge on a couple of big items or just keep myself in threads and needles for a while.

Filling all that white won't be easy, but I'm sure the results will be worth it! Living with charm looks great too :D
