I have been stitching though.... Started on Henry again on Monday evening, I decided to work up his body so I can get to his head! I stitched lots of dark brown for the edge of his jacket and then realised it was one square too far to the right!!! Several swear words later I sat and unpicked all the brown and then put him away in disgust!!!
Tuesday I managed to stitch a lot more on him, with Becky in London I needed to keep busy, and the weather was very wintery here - we had snow! So I stayed warm by the fire and stitched. Becky got back safely at 11pm and had really enjoyed herself.
Wednesday I had to go back to work and as I had been away a few days I had lots of work to catch up on, also the boss and the sales guys were back so no sneaky stitching! At stitch club I worked on Capricorn peekaboo. As this was close to be completed I worked on it Thursday night also and now it is done:-
I am pleased with how it looks, I'm sure she'll love it, although I think the goat has a "mean" expression!! I will start Sagittarius over the weekend.
Tonight I will work on Henry again, the girls are off to a Halloween party so I'll have time to myself again.
I have also decided I want to do the 3D Christmas Cottage below -
This was in a Cross Stitcher magazine last year but I was put off with buying all the plastic canvas it asked for. But looking at it again, this is only to back the walls and roof, not to stitch on. So I am going to use cardbroad instead - it'll do the same job I'm sure. I am really keen to start this but will try to hold on until I finish Stuart's birthday card - which I hope will be next week.
Anyway I had better go and get ready for work, I am sitting typing this in my PJ's and dressing gown..... Happy Halloween everyone........
