Updates

I won't have much time for stitching tonight as I have to go out in an hour. As most of you know I help out a lot at the girl's school. Tonight is Open Night for prospective new pupils so I am helping with refreshments.
Here are my updates, firstly Family Tree -

Hope you can see some progress! I worked on it quite a bit but it is still growing slowly! You can see the beginnings of a little house and lady on the left! Also the border is progressing well on the left. Still plenty of tree to do on both sides.

Now to D for Dancer, this is how I left it last night -

I have just done the "detached chain stitch" to make the daisies. Next is some more cross stitch - the dancer, the dog etc. I am also supposed to attach the dragonfly charm below this but as it is on a roller frame I will have to leave that until last.

Anyway must dash.... got to eat before I go...
