Henry in all his glory

I know how excited you all get to see Henry and his wives, so I thought I'd better get the update on today! So here he is; most of his top half is now complete, just a bit of red/gold at the bottom right. Then I have to finish his legs!! You can also see Anne of Cleves emerging on his arm with just a bit of body and face.
Thanks for all your concern about me not stitching anymore.... I don't think that would ever really happen.... I am obsessed. I just had a funny week but things have been going well this week so far, thank goodness.
I also managed to finish the Silver Wedding card last night. The design had half cross stitch around the edge of the outer purple border but I decided it looked just fine as it was so I missed that bit out.


I have now started my cousin's new baby card but not much to show yet. Otherwise I have started Wedding Row and stitched the word "Love".
Happy stitching

Both projects are fabulous, but Henry is so gorgeous to look at! What a lot of detail in there!

I think when you say you aren't stitching or don't feel like it- you are still producing 5 times what the rest of us are cranking out!!! LOL!

We're all so invested in Henry! He looks great.

BTW - I have read 2 of the Philippa Gregory and enjoyed them so much!!
