I have started adding colour to this section as after working only in black on Tribal Dragon i have just about had enough of black.
I decided to start at the top left corner to save my fabric getting too dirty.

I instead started doing some more crochet, something about the end of summer makes me yearn for yarn. I have been able to crochet for years (My Nana taught me) but i have never been able to read a pattern. My Nana would speak it to me and i would crochet it then its stuck in my head. This time i wanted to read and work it out for myself.... it didn't go so well, mainly as i wasn't quite grasping the concept of working in the back loop- to create the cable rows i needed. I eventually found a you tube tutorial of the pattern i was using. The lady on the vid finished them in about 30 minutes, she made it so simple and i was able to watch and re watch over and over. The complete set of wrist warms took me around 2 days to finish and I'm pretty sure now i know how to do it, i can do it faster. I plan on making lots more in the future. Now if only i could find some matching boot cuffs.....

I have finally found my stitchy bug! A new start and evenings to myself has helped. Connor is marvel mad! As it's his 7th birthday in 6 days I thought this would be a nice present for him as we are hoping to decorate his bedroom in the next few months, yes decorating is still on going but that's a whole other post.
Ironman (yummy!) Is the first of the Avengers. I'm hoping to start black widow tonight. If I can stitch one character a night I should just be able to finish it in time. If not I'll keep it to one side and wait for his room to be decorated.
Also does anyone else sew little notes onto there pieces? Last night I decided that the lettering needs moving over 1 square. So I added a little note to remind me.
