A Finish!

I have another finish to share with you today:) I didn't think that I'd get this done completely this week but here it is in all it's glory!


This is La D Da Love is Patient stitched on Sassy's Fabby's 28 count Cheryl's Wild Rose using Crescent Colours. I love the way this had turned out after all the frogging on the heart I had to do plus there was no alphabet or numbers for adding your initials and the year and it was charted for the designer's initials and the year she designed it so I had a bit of changing to do there. I think this will end up being framed but I may well do it myself if I can find a suitable frame. Next time on this slot in my rotation I will have a new start and I think I will make the smalls week:) I need to start thinking about Christmas!

Another photo to share is, at long last, of HAED QS Dragonette framed. I finally managed to take a decent photo of it using the digi camera! Jess chose the frame and mount with the help of the framer.
And last but not least is a picture of Just Nan Royal Blossoms made up into a card for DH's auntie.
This week in my rotation it's HAED Winter by Sara Butcher. I haven't stitched on her in what feels like ages ( and it probably is!) so I'm looking forward to getting back into it and, hopefully, getting page 3 finished!

Jess' first week in 6th Form seemed to go OK apart from a slight hiccup early on in the week. I did not know until Wednesday when she got in that she had been crying on Tuesday night when she'd gone to bed. I knew there was something wrong on Wednesday morning but she said she was OK so I didn't push it. Anyway she was worrying that she wasn't going to be able to cope as she had already had a lot of homework and, let's face it, it's a bit of a shock to the system when you're not used to being bombarded with such a lot of work. Anyway she felt much better about things the next day and once she gets into a routine I am sure she'll be OK. She did decide that she wanted to drop General Studies so that she could concentrate on her other four subjects and use those two hours she gets G. S. to do homework and study but some of the students have already tried to drop it only be told no you can't or you'll be "ruining your life if you do" and one of her best friends had gone to see about dropping it and the head of the subject had ranted at her for 20 minutes ( Jess was actually there with her) so she daren't broach it! So DH and I have discussed it with her and have decided we are behind her 100% and have written a letter to the head of the subject so Jess is going to see him with it today. Keep your finger's crossed that he doesn't start ranting at her! Please!

Abi was in the wars Wednesday evening as she fell in the bath and hurt her back in the region of her ribs. I am sure I should wrap her in cotton wool as she can be so accident prone! Thankfully she didn't do any serious damage to herself although she is still a bit sore. She decided she was going to be brave today and have a go at PE:)

Hope everyone has a good week. Thanks for dropping by:)

Perfect frame for dragonette, Royal Blossom and Love is patient are superb. Hope all goes well for Jess and {{gentle hugs}} to Abi

Nic said...

The frame really sets off Dragonette nicely - which is a Good Thing after all those hours you spent stitching it, I don't know how you do it - I wouldn't have the patience!

The "Love is Patient" is much more my thing - smaller and simpler - it looks really nice. I thought of something like that for teh wedding commission I'm doing, but the commission-er doesn't think the recipient would like it :o(

Nice work!

Your work is so lovely! The quote on your finish is one of the most beautiful ones ever. The card is a very special gift. And that framed piece is gorgeous! Hope all goes well with Abi and Jess today.

Kajsa said...

I love all your finishes! The La D Da is beautiful, I think that's my favorite.

Poor Jessica, it's so though when they are in situations like that. I hope you can sort things out.

Stitcher said...

Lovely finishes, I'm sure Jess will be OK once she gets in to a routine, I think they try to push them over the edge at first, in the hope they'll drop a subject, just so they have less to teach. I'm sure the homework goes down as the course goes on.

Teejay said...

All of your pieces are so gorgeous, Sally, very inspiring.

Svenja said...
