Big Update

I am a Nana again! Lily Lisa Marie Baker Was born on Sunday night weighing 6lbs 11. She is grandchild number nine :-)

Castles in the Air
I finished part 6. I love the way this one looks.

The finished part.

How it looks overall.

Natures Vision

Although it is looking pretty good, I'm finding it hard to stitch on at the moment..............I am having trouble getting into it. I have to make an effort on it though as it is for my son Ashley.

Oriental Lady

This is a bookmark that became a UFO. I needed a small project to be able to do when I have my grandchildren so I fished it out. I had to frog the fan as I started it one stitch too high. I am back stitching as I go as there is an awful lot of it.

New Start

I purchased the first part of Around the World in Eighty Days when it first came out. I love doing speciality stitches and thought I might as well start it seeing I rarely have new starts seeing nearly everything I stitch is huge :-/

The fabric is Honeysuckle Pink Joblean but it does not show up very well in the bottom of the two photos.

An Amazing Bargain!

A bargain in England I hear you say when everything is so over priced? A bargain in RIP OFF BRITAIN? Very much so! Mother in law to be picked me up this from a car boot sale for £5! Yes you read that right, £5!

It is Lavender and Laces Celtic Summer. The chart has it's original price tag on it of £8.99.  It contains absolutely everything. Fabric, beads, threads, needles, original chart and photo copies of the chart. How amazing is that for £5! Thank you Mumsy!

It will have to wait for a while as I have L&L's Angel of the Sea to do first :-)

Monday was a busy day for me as it was a bank holiday and we drummed at Battle Medieval Fayre. It was such a beautiful day and I got severely sunburnt even though I was wearing a high factor sun screen. It has been raining since then. We are having crazy weather. I am beginning to wonder if we will even have a summer this year.

Castles in the Air

It has been a while since I worked on this and I needed a change from my other stitching.

This is so large that it is very hard to get a descent photo of it.

I finished this area and started the next:

I just love doing the speciality stitches.

I have worked on one of my HAED's and Natures Vision as well but there's not really enough done to warrant pictures this week.

Green Man and Natures Vision.

Not had the chance to do much stitching this last week. I am hoping to remedy that over the next few days though :-)

First up, The Green man Cernunnus. 



As you can see, I have done quite a lot on it since the last update.

Next up, Natures Vision.

I have started the second wing and put a few of the stars on.
