Midnight Enchanter Update

I got so engrossed in stitching this yesterday that I stayed up until 5.30am! Guess I made up for all the stitching I could not do over the least week due to a flu like bug, which I am not completely over still.

Here's a close up of the area I was concentrating on.

I know you are all thinking that he is nearly finished, well trust me, he is not lol. I have to stitch a rock shelf he is standing on and the background, then there is tons of back stitching to do.

This is the first piece out of two that I am working on as part of a challenge Evalina set me.To complete my UFO's before she completes hers. Whoever wins sends the other a gift or makes something for them.

I got my partner for the Froggy Exchange in my ILCS Yahoo group, so I need to start that.

I also got some new fabric through this morning from www.sewandso.co.uk A nice green Jobelan so I can start my Lizzie Kate Spring sampler at the end of the month.
