It's that time of the month yet again! So here's my SFS report then I'll show my birthday gift for Michelle.
Carried fwd from April : £86.84
Amount Spent : £16.38 ( more than I'd hoped but I needed more fabric for my cottages )
Earned : £24.00 ( for 3 finishes, Summer Witch which I can't show yet, May Calendar Girl and another I can't show yet!)
Balance to carry over : £119.46.
I must say this month has been difficult. I don't know why. Maybe it's my mood as I always crave new stash when my mood is low but I have managed to stop myself by looking at what I already have and giving myself a damned good talking to ( and calling myself some not so nice names ) plus reminding myself that I do have the Shepherd's Bush Fold to look forward to for the next 6 months or so. Of course I am getting rather impatient now for it to arrive but, fingers crossed, it should be soon. I hope so as if it doesn't arrive before July I will be well and truly screwed on SFS! Lol!
Onto my actual stitching now! The lovely Michelle had a birthday at the beginning of May but I was late with her gift as I didn't even finish the stitching until the day of her birthday. I was so pleased that she loved what I stitched for her and here it is.

SAL with Barb
After weeks of waiting my LHN Song of the Seasons was ready to pick up from my framer. He had problems with his oval mount cutter and ended up having to order a new one. I have to say it was well worth the wait and this photo really does not do it justice.
I have been busy trying to get plenty done on my June Cottage seen as June will soon be here! Love this one.
Barb and I are also SALing on Shepherd's Bush pieces. This is my progress on My Mom's Garden. I should get all the cross stitching done this evening then move onto the speciality stitches.
My robin is getting there on page 4. Hopefully not much longer! I say that every time don't I?! Lol!
Finally October's Marigold is almost done! Just a little more on the flowers and some bits to fill in here and there and it'll be done!
I almost forgot about the charts I was giving away. There were not many takers for them but here are the winners.
Shepherd's Bush Happy Birthday : June
JBW Designs To The Beach : Heather
Little House Needleworks May Calendar Girl: Kay
Heather and June I have your addresses so Kay can you please email me yours :)
That's all from me for now. I got caught up on visiting and commenting but I am probably a long way behind again now! Thank you all for continuing to visit me and for your lovely comments :)
Until next time.
With much love.
