Sorry for not posting yesterday, that's the first day I have missed since starting. Seemed to spend most of my evening doing little bits and pieces. Needed to cut the grass as it is due to rain again now for a few days, needed to do some ironing :-( Only got a bit of stitching done on Summer Fairy, but some is better than nothing.
My best news was a kind comment yesterday from Srinity saying she could help me with my search for Henry VIII chart. She has a copy and was able to send me a scanned version of it.... which I have just downloaded and printed off. I am so happy and think it is such a kind gesture, cross stitch bloggers are so friendly. Of course now I really want to start it.... but I must be patient as I will need one of my large frames for it and I don't have one free, so I will store it safely away until I am ready to start (yes of course that''ll happen!)
I also have a new "want" that I spoted yesterday on the web. It is a sampler by The Victoria Sampler and is called D is for Dancer (by Thea Dueck). It would be great for Becki as she is the dancer in the family but it'll be a challenge as it uses all sorts of threads etc that I am not used to - silks, braids and Au ver a Soie thread! It also has a cute golden dragonfly on it. Here is a picture of the chart -
I think it'll have to go on my Christmas list!! as the accessory set is £21 and the chart £7....... I like to start my Santa list early!!!
Well tonight is my "Crafty Hands" club night so I will work on my View from a Terrace, I have also been doing Nicki's birthday card. It is Stacey's birthday today so she should have received her card..... I will post a picture of it tomorrow.
