I finally got my dark pink thread I needed for my Mom's Sampler, and as you can see it has made a big difference and the stitching seems to stand out more now. I am just working on the sunflower on the right at the moment. I am trying to stitch this between 6pm - 8pm then move onto the Warwickshire Map after that. Tonight has been stitching club though, so it has stayed at home as I take my mom with me!
I just want to thank everyone for their lovely comments again, I always think I pick unusual things to stitch that maybe other people may not like... but it seems lots of you like what I do! I was asked the name of the chart that I am doing for my mom - It is just called Mother's Day Sampler, it was designed by Marie Diaz and was out of The Cross Stitcher magazine back in March 2006.
Last night when I got in from work I had a lovely greeting off my dog, Marshall. He is 14 this year and not as agile as he was, but to my surprise he jumped up on the settee for some love! First time he has done that for ages. I managed to get Stuart to grab my camera and take a picture of us as I can never get a good photo of the dog as he always moves away when he sees the camera.
I just had to show the photo although the dog looks much better than me!!!!!
Now I'm off to do some more of my map, I gave up on it last night as I had to unpick some of the border!!!! So I'll go and try to get it in the right place this time!
