Rota started

Spent most of my evening working out how to put a slide show on here showing some of my completed projects and cards, took a while but got there eventually.

Also spent some time on a few of my cards, I started Nicki's Birthday card and finished my 2nd snowman card for Christmas.

Then it was time to work on my Rota.... I think I kept putting it off at first but I have now done some of my "Summer Fairy". Took me a while to get back into it.... also discovered a small mistake in her hair but that won't be noticable. Here is the picture I took of it last week, I'll then post an update on Sunday at the end of the week.
You can just make out her legs, some of the flowers/leaves and the blue moon in the background. It uses some DMC light effects thread which you can't really see here but they do give a nice shimmer!!

Received my next issue of Cross Stitch Card Shop today in the post. It is only out bi-monthly so it seems ages since the last one. There are some lovely cards as usual and a free All Our Yesterday's card kit. Haven't had a good read of it yet, may take it into work tomorrow to read at lunch.
Anyway I'm off to bed now as I am tired and want to read some of my book - Dean Knootz - Forever Odd, which I have nearly finished and want to see how it ends!

I have ordered the World of Cross Stitching for a couple of years and it's great when it comes in mail. I just hope I had time to stitch more of the lovely designs on it. :)

I might be able to help you with the "Henry VIII and the wives". Send me email if your still looking for it (email address on my blog).

This is a pretty one, soft colours, looking forward to seeing your progress this week.
I don't get the UK mags anymore, i get the online Gift of Stitching mag instead.
