A few updates

I did promise to update you with my stitching pictures from last week.
Here is the top part of my biscornu from World of Cross Stitching magazine 142. The photo doesn't show the lovely colours as well as it could do or the gold and cream beads!! Just started the bottom piece now that I aim to finish this week so I can assemble it at the 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!

You are one busy lady!! The biscornu is just sweet! It's going to be really pretty stitched up. I can't wait to see the final product. I haven't made a biscornu yet, but it's on my list!

Beautiful works.......I don't have time to do a cross stitch for my mother for her card. I am going to assume Mother's Day in Britain is on March 15th? Mother's Day is in May here in Canada.

What an abundance of stitching - your needles must be smoking. You have some lovely work.
