Very late updates

I can't believe where this week has gone! Suddenly realised it was Friday and I hadn't shown my stitching updates from last weeks's rota.......
So firstly here is I Do - finished and awaiting framing. I think it looks lovely and I even added my initials to the bottom, something I know lots of people do but I always forget!! I am taking this into my local stitch shop tomorrow to get it framed. I have also kitted up "Wedding Row" for Helen's wedding in June. Her baby is due today..... but no news yet!!

I also managed some on my Family Tree, but not as much as I would have liked. I sit and stitch on one seat of a two seater settee, this stitching is on such a big frame that I need all the space! So if Becky is downstairs sitting with me I find it hard to work on!! This week Becky seemed to be downstairs a lot!! Which I don't mind as they normally spend loads of time in their room so it is nice to have their company!
So some of the border continued, some of the bottom left square and some extras in other places. I think next time I am going to move back up the top and get some more names stitched!!

Shellie kindly sent me some other Margaret Sherry charts I hadn't got, so I have just started another little cute cat in a mug!! There are 4 of them altogether, I want to do all 4 and attach them to my red cloth bag I bought at the Church Christmas Fayre!!

Otherwise this week I have started Country Idyll, the DMC classics one I mentioned a few weeks ago that I want to stitch for mom and dad. It is coming along nicely - I mainly worked on the cottage part.... lots more to do though!! I will show my progress on that next time.

Anyway hope you all have a good weekend.

I Do turned out wonderful, it will be awesome framed. Family Tree is looking great too. Loved your earlier card finishes. What fun and thoughtful cards for the recipients, mini works of art.

Hi Ginnie, I absolutely love how your BC piece turned out. Such beautiful colors and awesome stitching. Anxious to see it when you get it back from the framers. :-)

And Family Tree is looking pretty gorgeous too. You're certainly moving right along on it.
