AOY "The Lighthouse"



This is my progress on All Our Yesterdays The Lighthouse. I have still a way to go with this one I was hoping it would nearly be done but I lost a couple of nights stitching so haven't got as far as I would have liked. I will be stitching on Dimensions Row of Love this week as I feel a bit guilty since it hasn't seen the light of day since May. Hopefully I can finish the Lighthouse next time in my rotation.

I am hoping to get Lighthouse and the Poppy finished in the next couple of months so that I can concentrate on my LHN Ornie SAL as I am a bit behind after having a little hissy fit with Red House in Winter. As it is one of my favourites I really want to start and finish it again.

I have also noticed that DMC have brought out two old Henry VIII cross stitches. I have completed Henry VIII and his six wives and so would like to complete Henry VIII and the Palace of Richmond. I made the mistake of showing my mum this and she has said she would like to have it alongside the other two I have stitched for her so it looks as though in the near future I will be buying this kit ready to stitch for my mum (for christmas she said, but didn't mention which year lol).

Anyway enough of my rambling, until next time, happy stitching.

Looking great. Sounds like you are going to be very busy, why not make Henry your new start for 2011 that'll give you 6 months to get other stuff finished first.

Lesleyanne, this piece is looking more and more lovely! I love the colors in it. Good luck with your new start on Red House--I'm sure that this time, it will stitch up beautifully for you :)

Lovely progress on your AOY. These designs just have something about them that I just love. I think it's because I live by the sea:)

I have checked out the new DMC Henry chart. It is nice but very similar to the other one so doubt that I'll do it. I would prefer to do the Elizabeth I one instead, but need to finish Henry befpre making any plans

Great progress on this piece. Have stitched Henry & wives too - one of my favourite projects. Haven't seen the new one, so will be keeping my eyes open for it. :0)

Looks lovely. I keep thinking I should do one to represent my two children. The father in law really likes the style of those designs so I could make it for him. x
