Managed to out in some work on Vlad again this week for the HAED BB UFO/SWIP SAL. Think I only managed to put a few hundred stitches in but at least I have put some work in on him, don't think I've touched him at all this year. He should look like this when (or if) completed.
Managed to grab some bargain Q Snap type frame off ebay the other day, now I'm just hunting for a good table stand to rest them on as they are a bit big for me just to hold in my hand. Once I track a nice stand down I think I'll have to stop with the X-stitch buying for a while :p
I'm hoping the new frames will let me stitch a little faster though, as it seems to take me forever to get even a little bit done :s
