Nearly finished another

Here's my Sunday update on View from the Terrace, I was hoping to finish it this time around but my eventful holiday meant I had a few non sewing days!! So nearly there but not quite!

The close up shows I have just the sky, top of the border and a few small bits around the cottage. Luckily this design has very little back stitch! I am very pleased with how it is looking. Shame my holiday wasn't a similar view!!

Now I did consider continuing it this week to get it done, but the sky is getting a bit boring! So I have sorted my rota and will slot it back in soon.

My new rota (well not much different) is as follows-

  • Week One (next) - Family Tree + Mom's Sampler
  • Week Two - View from the Terrace (to complete) + Mom's Sampler + D for Dancer (to start)
  • Week Three - Warwickshire Map + Mom's Sampler
  • Week Four - Mom's Sampler (If not finished - to complete) + New Start - "All hearts come home" (Passione Ricamo Freebie for Christmas)

I have also ordered some 18 ct ivory aida for Henry VIII and Wivies so will be itching to start that. When it arrives I will get it attached to the frame but I must finish Warwickshire Map first (well I'll try but I may just start a little tiny weeny bit!! You know how it is!!)

Here's my update on the Blue Ribbon Design freebie - Christmas ornament. I haven't done a huge amount but it is taking shape.

I have also just ordered a new chart and some more fabric for another small sampler I have seen!! I will fill you in on this next posting!
