This is my progress so far on my Mom's Birthday Sampler stitching. It doesn't look a lot yet and it seems really pale but I am waiting to add some dark pink to it but I haven't got the correct thread. Hopefully I'll get that over the next few days. The fairy holds a dark pink heart, the dress on the hanger has a pink sash down it and the border of the 9 little squares has dark and light pink in it.
I have decided to stick with my rota but continue with mom's stitching throughout in case I run out of time. As I want to make it into a cushion I will need some time to sew it together!! So this week I am working on my Warwickshire Map also. Next week we are on holiday and mom and dad are coming too so I will leave the Sampler at home! I'll work on View from a Terrace that week and some other small card projects. I want to finish the Terrace one this month if I can.
Yesterday I was very pleased as I managed to frame a piece of stitching by myself. My friend Aly bought me a Tatty Teddy kit a while ago which I stitched up quite quickly, but then it went back in my drawer. On having a sort out I found some self adhesive mount board and a little wooden frame so I got it all measured up, stuck it to the board, glued the back pieces down and mounted it in the frame. I think it turned out ok, I just need to find a small space to hang it!!
Well I am off to get stitching on my map, if I can get this finished soon I can start my Henry VIII and his Wives chart, which I am keen to get going on after the return on the Tudors TV series on Friday night. I love that programme and think Jonathan Rhys Myers is lovely as Henry!!
