Last week's progress

Here is my progress on last week's projects. I did manage to complete all the cross stitch on my lily bookmark but haven't done the back stitching yet. I am going to continue with this during the week along with My Family Tree. I love the pretty pinks behind the flowers.
We were invited out for tea on Sunday afternoon. Our friend's Pete and Lesley threw a small surprise party for their son who has just completed his 9 weeks training in the RAF. We had a nice afternoon and lots of nice things to eat. Their daughter, Helen is the one who is getting married and having a baby next year. They have found out they are having a girl - so I can adapt my stitching to suit!
Here is Dusky Dreams, I didn't put much time into this last week but it is progressing so I thought I should update you. There are some petit cream beads in between some of the pink stitching but the photo hasn't captured them!



Mamma Mia was fabulous still, I still laughed and cried and I could still sit and watch it over and over again! Looking forward to the DVD release now next month.
So this week is Family Tree time again. I have set myself a small goal - to finish the left part of the tree in the 3 shades of green. Then I am going to move down before I move across!!! So leaving the right side of the tree to a later date!! I also want to finish the bookmark and start Stuart's 40th birthday card as his birthday is just over a month away.
Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really love to hear what people think and appreciate your support.
