Henry week 1

So here is Henry after just one week of stitching. I have really enjoyed this week of my rota and have spent quite a bit of the weekend stitching on him. You can see both his hands now, more of his tunic and lovely red cloak and some more of his legs in fetching white tights!! I will look forward to picking him back up in a few weeks time.


I also finished my little scissor keep yesterday. It is a freebie from Casey Buonaugurio called Jack-O-Lantern. I could only find pink ribbon though so I had to finish it with that. My mom saw it today and asked me to make her a scissor fob too...... ok I'll add it to my "to do" list!

Thanks for all your supporting comments for my Auntie. I will update you next week when we hear anymore news, she is just waiting for her operation date now. Next week I have Dusky Dreams on my rota and I want to begin my Christmas gifts. I hope I can get all three done before Christmas but I aim to do one at a time as one completed is better then three half done. Because my Auntie has been on my mind a lot I am going to start with her bookmark. In fact I have just started it before blogging, it's stitched on plastic canvas, bit of a pain but it'll be fine when complete.

Great progress on Henry Ginnie! But looking at his picture, I can only wonder how much those tights must have itched back then! No microfibers, no soft wool, yuck!

That Henry VIII design is fabulous. I'd give that extra time in the rotation if I were you. And your little fob is such a cutie.
