Thank You!

I want to start this post by saying Thank You to everyone that left a comment on my last post. I really appreciate your kindness and support and it meant a lot to me. Thank You.

After the weekend I tried again with Retro Lady but again her glove was still not right so she has gone in the cupboard until the lighter nights. I was so cross with myself but am not completely sure it is me or the chart so I have emailed the designer and she has sent a black and white copy so will use that when I decide I can face her again.

I was also mad at myself because I put that I was going to order from an LNS but I wasn't it was an ONS and then ordered from one that didn't put the threads on bobbins - so MAD with myself again. I was in a terrible mood on Tuesday but I picked up my Vervaco Pink lady with Red Rose and all was calm lol.

She is coming along lovely and so much so I didn't stitch an ornament this weekend partly because I couldn't decide which one lol and partly because I was enjoying Pink Lady so much.

Without further ado here is my progress.




I have stitched on the feather boa so think I have made good progress.

Until next time, happy stitching
