A couple of updates

Just a quick update tonight as I have just returned from my Craft Club and it is getting late and I want to get a bit more stitching in before bed!!
Here is Mom's Sampler, nearly there, next time you see this it'll be done! The colours don't look as good tonight as the light is poor, I will take a better one when it's done in natural sunlight. I have ordered a small cushion pad to insert in the completed cushion, just need to make the cover now!!


I have also been stitching a little bit of Dusky Dreams. The beads arrived yesterday,as you can see they are similar shades to the cottons. Again the light is poor on this picture as I have taken it tonight, the pink is a bit darker than it looks similar to the pink of the beads. I am loving doing this one it'll be very pretty.


The postman has been kind this week, he bought my Summer Row chart, my beads and today he bought my Sue Hillis design - Pirates Creed. I have tucked it away for now until Mom's Sampler is out of the way but I would like to get it done for Becky for Christmas. I am not allowed to buy any more charts now for a while..... promise!

Your Mum's sampler looks great, it will make a super cushion. Love the colours of Dusky Dreams, look forward to seeing more. I also meant to comment earlier about the Terrace, it looks fantastic. Well done on a great finish.
