Summer fairy coming along nicely

I have only worked half a day today as Becky has been unwell and off school. Normally they go to my mom and dads if they are ill as they are only round the corner, but mom and dad have gone away in their caravan for a few days so I was stuck! Becky didn't want to spend all day on her own so we compromised and I worked until 1.30 and booked half a days holiday. As Becky spent the afternoon lying on the sofa I was able to do some stitching!!
My Summer Fairy is looking good, her face and wings are progressing well and by Sunday I think I may be close to finishing it. Although I don't think my Light Effects thread stitching looks very neat but it should be ok when the back stitching is around it etc...

I also finished Nicky's Birthday card and will show that soon but in the mean time this is the card I did for Stacey.
I have used this Daisy ABC design a few times as it is really quick to stitch and looks effective on the blue daisy backing paper. I hope she liked it.
I am enjoying my rota more than I thought, it inspires me to do as much as I can before the Sunday cut off! I am still getting my cards etc done in betweeen. I have retrieved my Lilliput Lane project from my moms and I'm looking forward to the week when I can work on that!
Tonight I have to go and serve refreshments at the girl's school for their Year 7 production so probably won't be back until 8.30pm but I will continue with my Fairy then.
