D half done

I am feeling a bit rough today, I have finally come down with the cold that everyone else in the family has had. Stuart has been ill all week and has a horrid cough now that is driving us all mad! I don't seem too bad, just a bit sniffly and tired.
I got lots done around the house yesterday, we sorted the garage, had a trip to the tip, sorted the garden, changed the bed covers and turned the mattress!!! etc etc... I even managed to stitch! This afternoon I got to the bottom of the chart instructions on D for Dancer, so it is half done. On my next rota I think I can finish the top half - then it is just the edge and the finishing!!
Here is the result - only just all in the picture and the dragonfly is back in it's bag for safe keeping!

I have also completed the Golden Wedding Anniversary card for my parents to take to a party next week for some old friends of theirs. It is a simple design but looks nice.


In between stitching D I finished my "Spooks" piece. I think it turned out a lot neater than my first attempt, I just want to thread some cotton through to make a small hanger and then it can hang up for Halloween. I am now working on a small Halloween scissor fob - will show you next time.

I think tonight I may get my Warwicksire Map out!! Then next week it is HENRY..... yeah.. I can't wait to stitch on this I seem to have been waiting to start it forever.

I will update you in a few days and let you know who I am sending the Pooh chart to.

I'm not feel too well myself. My husband's been coughing for a week or so now. I'm sure at some point, I will catch whatever he's got. I really like to watch the progress of your designs...inspires me to keep stitching!
