It's time for another happy dance as last night I put the final stitches into Shepherd's Bush Family Sampler then this morning before I went to craft club I stitched the buttons and charms on. This one has been pure joy to stitch and I am rather sad to see it finished but I do have more SBs in my stash to start on next as I want to keep on with the SAL with Barb and Colleen. So I'll let the pictures do the talking on this one now :)
Shepherd's Bush Family Sampler ( kit)
Started 6th June 2011
Finished 22nd August 2011.
I loved every single stitch of this. I'd love to get this framed but may end up just making it into a pillow or something like that.
Friday I made a start on Blackbird Designs AotH Pumpkin Farm and so far I love it. The colours are so warm and it seems to be stitching up so quickly at the moment. As with the other AotH so far I'm using DMC and GAST.
Sunday evening I stitched a bit more on BBD Loose Feathers Peacock Pin Keep and as the light was bad at craft club today I also stitched on it there rather than my SB ornament. It was quite dull and I was sat away from the window today otherwise I might have been OK. I'll try and get the SB ornament stitched over the weekend sometime.
It's GCSE exam results day on Thursday and I have one rather nervous Abi trying to take her mind off it! She wants me to go with her which I'm so pleased about. In fact she is such a little love at times. We were discussing Christmas the other day and I said that we wouldn't have as much money for presents ( we've never gone wild as it is) and she just looked at me and said I don't care as long as I've got you three:) It was so sweet and brought tears to my eyes.
Right I'd best get this posted, catch up on blogs then I might go sit with the girls and stitch for a bit.
Take care everyone.
Love & hugs
