March Mayhem

Hi stunners!

Well it's been an exhausting March and I'm very happy to see the end of it! I've had to drive 5000 kilometres to avoid fringe benefits tax on my leased motor vehicle. Now I love going for drives, but after 6 hours it can be a tad tiring. Anyway it's all done now but unfortunately as my days off was spent driving and doing other boring life necessities it left me very little time to stitch. I really really missed it. So this post is the March wipocalypse, IHSW and April YOTA all in one.


This is as far down the columns that I will go on the bookshelf. It's not quite a full page there is still 20 rows or so to go but it cuts too far into the second shelf and I want to stitch along one shelf at a time. So once I finish that little bit in the right corner I will start back up the top on page 2. 


Managed to reach the end of the row at least, but not much else. 


No change for my poor Angel. Sorry man will put in extra time on you this month.

Here is the fabric that I bought at the Stitches and Craft fair at Rose Hill. It's all from the lovely boys at Sew it All. I've no idea what I'm going to do with most of it but I will be starting Randal Spangler's "So many books so little time" on the 28ct cream Jobelan. It's such soft fabric and it's totally beautiful to stitch on. This little dragon is going in the library as my second love is books!!! Ok it's really shoes but books are cool too.

So many books so little time!

I also bought the new e-zine "New age Cross stitch". This is like a dream come true. All my favourite cross stitch designers in one collection. Woo Hoo! I plan on stitching the HAED Adventures in reading (also planned for the library) and maybe Deep in the Forest or Bluebell Fairy. 

New Age Cross Stitch Volume 1

That's all for now my lovelies. I will have more stitching to show next post which I believe is the April Wipocalypse. I have started 2 new projects and will have something substantial to post. 

May all your lives be filled with laughter, sunshine and rainbows. And to steal a line from Carly and Tresne who were contestants on My kitchen Rules

Kisses and hugs

  1. Looks like you got in lots of stitching! Everything looks great. I love So Many Books So Little Time and have it in my stash to stitch...some day! Lovely fabrics.

  2. Great progress on your wips. Jealous of all your new fabric!

  3. Your projects all look great Alicia. I love your new fabric.


  4. Great work on what you did stitch on! We've got to do more kms in our lease car too during this coming FBT year, only just scraped it in. We will definitely stitch on Rose this month, as we probably wont while I am away on holidays. Take care and get stitching! LOL

  5. Great progress on your projects. Lovely fabric stash as well. I look forward to seeing your start on So Many Books. Can't wait to see what your new starts are.

  6. Lovely progress on your projects.

  7. Great progress. I shared that quote to some kids I teach cross stitch to at school and they looked at me dumbfounded lol:)

  8. You've done some great progress considering how busy you where :)

  9. Love the new fabrics!!!! Great progress on your wips :)

  10. That is a stunning fabric haul. Well done!!

  11. Great stitching, one day I will start the bookcase one your doing, it's nice to see how it looks.

  12. I love the bookcases so much, I'm toying with the idea of the Steampunk bookcase, although I'm waiting for the larger one to see which one I buy!

    Well done on the progress, even though you've been busy you've still got a lot done!

    That is stunning fabric and I love the Spangler dragons! There is just so much I want to stitch and I have no idea how to squeeze it all in!

    I look forward to the next always :)

  13. Great progress on the top two! Love the combination of books and dragons although I'm not sure how they'd mix in real life!

    We don't have that tax here, it seems a little odd - make you burn loads of unnecessary fuel so you don't pay tax? Weird and not very environmentally friendly!


Hello Stunner! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. I hope it made sense as I can rave on lunatic style when left unchecked. Any comment is appreciated and thank you for taking the time and brightening my day! xoxo
