projects revival

I was waiting for Les Fleurs du Mardi backing fabric to arrive; when it did, I realised that I miscalculated the amount of fabric I need, so I had to order some more. 
Where was my brain that day?ūüėē 
But time is never lost, when there are other projects around, and I do have "just few" of them waiting for some attention ūüėČ. 
Since Christmas, besides making Luna and finishing the silk bag (which you can see in one of my previous posts), 
I have been working on a couple of others.

Santa's Village - a cross stitch project by Country Cottage Needleworks  - a series of 12 houses, which I bought originally as BOM (long time ago).
I just finished month 5, and started working on the 6th. 

 Chateau Hexagon by Lynette Anderson - also bought as BOM.

This is Month 6 finished, and I have started stitching Month 7.

I like this kind of hand stitching, so easy to do in the evenings in front of TV, specially in winter.

I have been sorting out some fabrics for Quilters Patch quilt, which I would like to start making, once Les Fleurs du Mardi is finished (which I plan - unusually for me - to machine quilt).

I wish you all a happy stitching week!
