Second Finish for May!

Here we go with my second finish for May! It's Country Stitches Love Letters which Barb ( no blog) kindly sent me when she had finished with it. I loved stitching this although I have made a few mistakes here and there in my counting and I'm not happy with my finishing as it looks more like a rabbit's head than a heart but never mind!!! Since taking this photo I have added random cross stitches around the edge as it said in the chart. The chart is now on it's way to Su:)

Country Stitches Love Letters

28 count Vintage Country Cream linen ( one over one)

DMC threads

Started May 3rd 2009

Finished May 9th 2009.


I think Drawn Thread My Favourite Things might just get finished next Sunday if I put my mind to it! This has been such a wonderful piece to stitch and I don't think it'll be my last DT this year as I have the seasonal spots, The Sanctuary and Generosity in my stash. This is my progress from last Sunday.
Finally I managed a teeny bit on Bea on Monday evening. It's very difficult to concentrate on stitching while the season finale of Heroes is on so this is what I got done!
Last night and tonight are my HAED nights so QS Girly Gothic is out and I have to say that I might just stitch on her now until she is finished. I am so excited to be so close to finishing and also excited to be starting my first Jasmine Beckett Griffith piece next:) So look out for QS GG finished over the next few days ( I hope!!!).

Well this is short but sweet today! Lol! Thanks to everyone who visits and also comments:) ( thank you for all your lovely ones on my BBD finish in my last post) I appreciate it very much as it's nice to know that you're visiting:)

Take care everyone.

Hugs

All your stitching is great and you were doing some great progress on them.
