'It's a Jingle out There' Finished

It's a Jingle out there by Lizzie Kate stitched in DMC

I couldn't resist finishing this off this afternoon instead of stitching on Celtic Summer. I am not sure whether I will frame it for Christmas or finish it some other way.

For my next small piece, I found a Mill Hill kit called Wisteria Angel that somehow ended up as a UFO which is about half done.  Lots of beading going on in that piece and I will post a picture once it is finished.

Update on Celtic Summer

Here is a before photo:

And this is what she looks like now:

And a close up of the area I have been working on:

I am really pleased with the way she is turning out.

I have also nearly finished 'It's a Jungle out There' by Lizzie Kate, which is my small piece I am working on.
I will post a picture of it once it is finished.

Update on The Green Man and CITA

I finally started The Green Man by HAED. I need to get some more threads for it so at the moment I am stitching on my other HAED 'Spirit', which is a story keep.

So far I have done 600 stitches all in blues, greens and black.

Castles in the Air

This is what it looked like before:

And this is what it looks like now:

It is slowly coming along.

Colin and I have joined a drumming group. We play at festivals, carnivals, private functions etc which we raise money for the special baby unit at our local hospital. We are called Section 5 Drummers.

Its great fun and relieves a lot of stress at the same time lol. I love watching little kids faces when they see us playing. They get so excited.

As you can see in the above picture, beer is a necessary part of an event before, during and after we play lol.
