Top Row Complete!

I have finished the top row of Mini Ariadne today.  I had hoped to get it completed last week but my mojo is a bit intermittent at the moment.  I have to say I am really pleased with how she looks and I look forward to stitching on her again soon.

Not sure what I am going to stitch on for the rest of the week.  On Friday it is the HAED BB 2013 Freebie SAL so might work on that but not sure yet.  There is something else that is screaming to be worked on but we will see what comes out of the WIP box.

Until next time, happy stitching

Page 2 Finished!

I have finished the second page of my husband's football logo, only four more pages to go!  Unfortunately, I can't stitch on it any more this week as I have ran out of the blue thread so I have ordered three more skeins just to be on the safe side.  I ordered white too!

This week I am working on Ariadne.  I only have a partial page to finish the top row so am hoping to get it complete soon.

I have a lot on this week as my youngest son is leaving primary school ready to go to secondary school in September so there are lots of parties and assemblies to attend.

I hope everyone is okay and enjoying the weather although I understand we could have thunderstorms this week.

Until next time, happy stitching

I have been stitching on QS Literate Dragon for just over a week and this is my progress.  I really don't want to put this down today but am going to stitch on my husband's logo even if it is only for today.

I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely weather we are having in the UK and staying safe in the sun.

Until next time, happy stitching

This is how my Tusal jar looks today.  A day early and not a lot of change since my last picture.  I am blaming Wimbledon.  I watch tennis most of the year round thanks to Eurosport but whenever Wimbledon is on it seems I can't stitch and watch tennis like I do most other weeks.  I am actually a day early but I thought better late than never.

Since I have no stitching to show you I thought I would show you a little of my garden.  This is my favourite part of the garden.  I called it may mad bed because everything seems to have gone mad this year!

A close up my roses.  This rose is from a cutting taken from my nan's garden who died when I was about four, so it is very special.

This next rose belonged to my husband's nan and was in the garden when we moved in.  It was given to his grandparents on their silver wedding anniversary so again a special rose.

This next rose is a cutting from a rose I brought my mum when I was younger for mother's day called something to do with mothers it called be Mother's Day but I am not sure.

Last but no least my dwarf, ha ha, lavender and my summer bedding pots which if I do say so myself are looking great this year.

 I caught the Lily napping in the garden last night in the shade.  At first I thought there might be something wrong her as she was flat out.

But as you can see she is fine.  Such a beautiful cat, in my opinion.

Finally I cannot let this historic day go by without mention of Andy Murray who has won Wimbledon today the first British man in 77 years.  Not one of my favourite players but today he played awesome and deserved to win.  Well Done Andy!

Until next time, when I hope to share my progress on my HAED BB SAL QS Literate Dragon, happy stitching.
