I also mounted all the "months" cards and have them ready to ship to the lady in the USA who bought them, I think she will be pleased but I hope she doesn't order anymore just yet!!
Tomorrow I must work on my Easter chickens to make my cones for Easter for the girls..... I didn't realise how close it was until the girls reminded me that they break up from school on Friday!!
Back to stitching then.....

I haven't taken a photo of Henry yet, I will do that in the morning when the light is better. I did manage to start Anne of Cleves dress, her bodice is in browns and golds.

I have also finished stitching up my biscornu and adding the cute ladybird button. These are hard to photo because you can't capture all the sides!! I also don't know what to do with it now it is complete.... what do other people do with theirs?
Lastly here are my 2 completed Mother's Day cards, I have decoupaged the one for my MIL and the cross stitched one is for my mom (last year they had styles the other way round). I have mounted them on quite small cards but they look nice. Just need to get to the shops on Saturday to buy a gift each.
I have been working on Henry also this week. I don't know why but every time I come back to Henry after a 3 week rest I always make a mistake on the first night and end up unpicking!! Doesn't happen with the other pieces in my rota. Luckily I have it sorted again now.... this week I am working on Henry's left side to complete his big jacket. If I'm lucky I'll start Anne of Cleeves too!!
Well that's all for today, I think I fancy a cup of tea before ER is on the telly and before I pick Henry back up again!

Tonight we are off to Phil and Nicky's wedding reception, the girls and I have been to the hairdressers and I have just wrapped up "I Do". Looking forward to going out.... so no stitching tonight.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Then here is the piece I have stitched for my mom's Mother's Day card, this is from the Cross Stitch Card shop (Jan 09) the same one I got my Valentines design from. It was in anchor threads on the chart but I used DMC, they seem to be a good match.
I have completed another name box on my Family Tree and continued on my cushion. Tonight my friend Aly is coming to visit so I won't be stitching much. Tomorrow is Stitch Club again so the Lilliput Lane will be coming out!! This is progressing well for our SAL, will update with a photo on here soon!
Anyway I had better get ready for work although I am finding it hard to get motivated this morning!

I have also finished the little piece for my mom's Mother's Day card and the top part of the biscornu. I will show you those on my next posting.
Now I have my new sewing machine I seem to want to stitch things I can finish using it!! I have started the cushion I mentioned last time and I have seen another design I want to make into a cushion for Becky. In the latest Cross Stitcher magazine there are some "Easter Cones" they have some pretty coloured cross stitch chickens on a band that is then attached to a Cone shape that you have to machine stitch together then fill the cone with mini eggs!! So I want to attempt 2 of them for the girls for Easter.
Next week I am back working on My Family Tree, I have already wound the fabric back up to the top so I can continue with the names of my great grandparents.
Hope you have all had a good weekend.
