A finish and some progress!

Firstly heres my finish for this week, Angel in the Cloud by Angel in Hand. I'd like to say it was a nice and easy stitch but it wasn't due to the fact that I can't count lol. I had numerous visits from the frogs which took away some of the enjoyment but at least it is finished. I do LOVE the colours in this one, pink and blue, my favourites and it is very cute. I will frame this one myself as it is only small. It is for my great niece's birthday in September so have a couple of weeks to find a frame.

Stitched on 28ct Summer Khaki linen using DMC threads suggested on chart.

Next here is my progress on All Our Yesterdays The Lighthouse. I am enjoying this one and hope to have it finished by next weekend except the outlining which a friend is doing for me as I am rubbish at it and hate it hence my love of Lanarte, LHN and Vervaco designs, no outlining lol. I have had to shorten this design slightly as I have stitched it the wrong way round doh. I always do this, forget to check which way up I am supposed to be stitching the design as I am always so excited to have a new start lol.

I have the next week off work to spend a few days with the boys getting them ready for school, checking the uniforms etc and I am also going to sort out their wardrobes - great fun lol.

I'm off now to stitch some more on The Lighthouse so until next time, happy stitching to one and all.

I'm glad the frogs finally left you alone and you were able to finish Angel in Hand, Lesleyanne! Isn't it amazing how sometimes the smallest pieces seem to end up taking so much longer than we had anticipated?

Your lighthouse is so beautiful with the two little sailor boys--just darling :)

Enjoy your week with your boys!
