Some stitching.

Stuart has had a nice birthday so far, we have had a lovely chinese take away, I have done some stitching on my 3D cottage and in a moment I hope Stuart is going to cut his birthday cake...... yum!
But before then here are my stitching updates. My Family Tree is coming along nicely, I managed to do all of the children and some of the backstitch on the mom, also the house in the middle now has a roof. I made a little error on the little girl's skirt, it looks ok but I must remember to make the skirts on the other side the same!
Here is a close up of the people.

And here is the first Gable end of my 3d cottage, it was fun to do. Now I am working on the one side, that has just the beads and back stitching to complete now. No photo yet though.

I may do some "Lest we Forget" stitching next or just relax in front of the TV watching "I'm a celebrity"..... although I am still waiting for the chocolate cake..... but it sounds like the birthday boy is having a snooze as I can hear snoring!!! It is hard work being 40.

Until next time,

Ginnie x

I didn't realize that family tree would have little people. That really makes the design! I think I would have stitched them first.
