A Finish!

I consider this my first finish in my 10 project challange so one down, nine to go! Lol! I LOVED stitching this and can't wait to do more in the future. I did make a bit of a boo boo which will teach me to read instructions properly as I used two strands of thread for the backstitch on the vines and the words before I realise I should have only used one so I just had enough of the dark green thread!
Shepherd's Bush Shepherd's Roll Kit


Started 22nd August


Finished 1st September.

Last night I stitched on Blackbird Designs Rites of Spring and I am SO close to a finish on this! All I have to stitch are some stems for the flowers in the bottom corners and then my initials but I do wish there was an alphabet with these to enable you to use your own initials. I think I'll have to use the alphabet that is with the mystery chart. I don't think it's exactly the same but it will serve the purpose!

Both the girls are out right now and I'm feeling very lonely! Jess has gone to the cinema with friends and Abi is at her friend's house until about 8pm. I have not had a good few days as I've been dreading the girls going back to school and being alone again plus we have new neighbours but I'm not going to say anything about that here. The house was repossessed and has been bought by someone then rented. I have spent a lot of today in tears and feel physically sick at the thought of being on my own here.

Well better go and cook tea for the old boy and I! He'll be in from work soon:)

Hugs

Hello Sally,
Your needleroll is beautiful - stitching to be proud of.
We are in a situation identical to yours. It is very hard to be cheerful at times - you must try not to let it get to you - easier said than done, I know - I have been in tears many times.
Take care,
Lynda.

Julie said...

SB needleroll is lovely, a quick finish too. RoS is superb, will you continue with the next one in your rotation to replace this one?
Hope the neighbours settle down.

I think there ought to be meetings when someone is considering moving into a neighborhood! And maybe even a way to cast a vote to allow them (or not) to move in LOL We have had some real doozies for neighbors, so I sympathize.

Pretty finish!
