Hello everyone,

I hope you all like spaceships, I got an urge to draw yet another spaceship. I should probably rename the next month vehicles month and just run with all of the ideas for designs I've had which are to to with vehicles. To be frankly honest this week my drawing challenge was the statue of Liberty so after lots of research and at least 5 attempts I ended up closing my cross stitch program in a rage (without saving) one cup of tea later I then decided to draw something a little easier. 

This design is for people like my friend who likes to fill in between the lines. She tells me after a long day filling in large blocks of the same colour is relaxing (like colouring in) and she doesn't have to worry about checking with the chart, and just stitch away while watching a TV show before bed and keeping an ear out for the baby monitor. 

Anyway Much love and happy stitching
