Hmmmmmm, I fell behind a bit this month. I lost a bit of motivation on Couer and then hurting my finger and the great Maple Syrup hunt all took a bite out of my enthusiasm. However, all WIPs got some work and I had a couple of finishes so I'm not moaning, I'm sure most people would still see me as an over-achiever. Next month I'll be sewing and quilting a bit more than stitching I think but I'm hoping to get back on track, specifically getting Boo Club back up to date and chasing along with Snapperbets.

Oh and I'm sure my iPod Touch also had a lot to do with my lack of stitching progress (and it certainly ate into my reading time!) I even downloaded the next version of Virtual Villagers onto our PC (it's not available for the Touch) so I'm wasting time in the evenings playing that.
