Time to get organised again!

OK, the time has come to get things sorted. My list of WIPs has changed, progress has been made and (shhh!) a couple of new starts as well.

New starts are:

QS Siberian Forest (HAED freebie SAL) - I need to get a bit more done on this one and to post another update on the HAED Bulletin Board to qualify for the other free charts.
Peter Rabbit Birth Sampler - for my little boy of course! Having the same problem with this one that I was with Hunca Munca, gorgeous design, stitches up lovely, but the backstitch is a complete pain to follow.
Dad's and Mine - this is a Stoney Creek chart of a tractor. Not my usual choice of design at all, but it's not for me.

I've decided to restart a couple of others too, so they are officially gone from my WIP list and have gone back into stash.

Some Enchanted Evening - not happy with the fabric. I don't think it's big enough to enable to get it framed afterwards. As this is going to be a present, that's no good! Also it's on linen, which is a bit irregular to stitch on. So I'm looking for some dark blue evenweave instead to do this on.

Farmyard Cottage - I'd not done a huge amount on this one, which is just as well after noticing I was using the wrong number of strands for some of the colours. Obvious now looking at the instructions, but not so much at the time!

And some new stash, of course!
