Firstly I want to thank everyone who voted and secondly I was very happy that no one voted for the don't have another start option - just shows what enablers us stitchers are!
I went to my fabric stash box to look for the hand dyed fabric I had planned to stitch Woodland Guardian on and realised I had packed it (I'm in the process of moving house at the moment and unfortunately that box has already been moved to the new house). I knew the fabric for Emerald Dragon (another hand dyed) was in the same box so I couldn't start those to.
So I've had to go with option three the Welcome Banner by Emily Peacock. However when I sat down and looked at the threads I haven't packed I realised I was missing some for this design. However I've decided to swap out some of the colours required for other colours I do have. As it is quite a simple bright design I'm hoping this won't make too big a difference.
I'm also thinking about changing part of the design so I can stitch our family name on the banner to personalise it. I can already picture it hanging in the porch of our new house!
I am also really disappointed because I had ordered the chart for Celtic Banner by Butternut Road but had a phone call yesterday to say the company I ordered from no longer stock this chart and are not going to be getting anymore copies. So I am sending out a plea to all my stitchy friends - if anyone knows where I could get a copy of this chart or has a copy themselves that they would be willing to sell please let me know as I have fallen in love with this design and would very much like to stitch it.
I should also mention that I have been extremely lucky over the past couple of weeks to have received two RAKs of charts from Heaven and Earth Designs. Firstly I received Handle with Care by Katerina Koukiatis and then I also received Lily by Ching Chou Kuik. I have sent several RAKs myself and I really can't decide which gives the better feeling giving or receiving RAKs. I know it restores my faith in human kindness when complete strangers can be so generous.

Keep stitching and smiling.
