Henry meets wife No. 3!!

I'm afraid Henry gave me a bit of trouble on Tuesday... well more precisely his wife Jane! I stitched some of the top of her dress on Monday night, then her neck and face, but discovered on Tuesday that I had stitched it one stitch too many along the front!!! So Tuesday's first job was to unpick the whole blooming lot!!!
Anyway since then all has gone well, and Henry can finally have a chat with wife number 3 (well he could if she had a mouth yet!!) I love the shades of blue and gold in her dress! I have also completed all the red on the left side of Henry's coat! I intend to continue with her head and dress over the weekend so you may see more of her on Sunday!


Work has still been quiet, no official word on the paycut yet... just lots of discussion. The boss is back in the office the beginning of February, so may have more answers then.
I have also finished another card for my friend Aly. I can't show it yet though as she sometimes reads my blog.... it is very cute though!! My list of finished projects looks good... but don't be fooled, all but one are cards...small and quick!! I have made many cards over the last couple of years so it is nice to finally count how many I do!! Just started a daffodil one now!! I sell some on Ebay but don't make a lot of money out of it.... do it purely for pleasure. I have now added a link to My Ebay on the left sidebar, just incase anyone out there fancies a look.... or a bid!!!!
Infact as I love making cards so much......if you are one of my blogging friends and would like a cross stitched birthday card off me..... email me direct (see my profile for address) with your birthday date and address and I'll try to make a special one just for you!!! (Shellie - yours is already on the way!!!)
Right back to Henry....... Hope you all have a super weekend.

Henry is looking great matey. Sorry to hear about your work situation. My hubby is in the same boat. He has been cut from 5 days per week to 4 days per week and there is talk that the staff will be cut back to 3 days per week in the very near future. Scary times ahead for a lot of people unfortuntely.

I guess you are re-writing history a bit with Henry, his wives and the frogs.

It's looking good though.

Oh, I have been waiting for this update! Henry looks fantastic!

I love the colors (and the humor!- laughed out loud about able to talk to his wife- if she had a mouth!)

People who don't cross stitch don't understand undoing a mistake. They think we're "just being a little too fussy" and no amount of explaining how it messes up the counting does one bit of good!! Your work is just lovely!!

Henry has made great progress, sorry you had to do some unpicking.

Wendy said...

Jayne! Firtly, fingers crossed for your work situation, that must be soooo worrying for you, I hope things work out in the end.
You have done sooo much work on Henry! The detail is fantastic! I just love the colours in this design and its great seeing it develop, sorry to hear about the unpicking part, how frustrating! grrrr
Have a lovely Weekend hun!

Henry is looking great, and I loved your earlier post of Johnny. I think I have that issue of the magazine in my stash somewhere. How good he is turning out is making me want to go dig it up. Thanks for your earlier information on your card making. I love the cards you do, they look so detailed and unique.

I hope those are just rumours at your work and everything turns out well when your boss comes back.
