I spent last week stitching on Chatelaine Summer Afternoon but didn't get too much done really. I did get it to where I wanted to be at the end of the week so I am happy as far as that goes. I have to admit that this piece drove me mad this week! Lol! The area with the over one flowers was a pig as the symbols were so tiny they were difficult to see but I perservered and managed to complete it without too many hitches! I decided to stitch the butterfly this time but made a bit of a hash of that! The half stitches should have been done with Rainbow Gallery pearl braid but I misread and ended up doing them with Kreinik but I like how it looks so have left it:) Next time it comes out I just have the bottom band to stitch so I may have another finish then! The scan isn't the full thing; I have just scanned the bits that I've stitched which are the butterfly in the middle, the flowers and the honeycombs.
So I started on HAED Summer ACEO early this week and added about 400 stitches to it last night. I'm hoping to get close to finishing it by the end of the week so we shall see how I do! If I can stay off this PC after tea and get stitching instead I might be in with half a chance! If I manage to get it finished I won't be adding anything to that slot in my rotation as I want to finish the other quick stitch as well before I start another one.
Would anybody be interested in buying my Fancy Work Lavender Rose Sewing Case chart? I know it's not that long since I bought it but I have decided that I will probably not stitch it and I have seen another one by AMAP that is more "me"! I'm afraid I'll have to restrict this to the UK so if you are interested please email me . SOLD
Just two weeks and it'll be the summer holidays! Wahooooooo! No more getting up early if I don't want to and no more homework etc for Abi! DH has got two weeks later on in the hols but no idea what we'll be doing!
Hope everyone is having a good start to the week. It's sunny here at the moment but looking at the sky that isn't going to last!
