Wedding Row

Here is my update on Wedding Row (Bent Creek), sorry the photo shows light and shade lines on the fabric it's becasue it was rolled up! I am finding this a nice easy stitch and am confident I can finish well in time for June!!


I also managed to stitch one chicken for the girl's Easter Cones. In fact since taking this photo I have stitched the green one too!! Just 2 more to do, then I have the fun of making the cones. I think they are very cute.
I have finished the rest of the baby card (well what I can until I know what she has) and I have now started Laura's birthday card, I am stitching a japanese lady picture as she pointed them out a while ago that she liked them. Photo next time!!
This week I am back on Family Tree, mind you I nearly made a big mistake!! I was about to stitch last night the next set of names in one of the boxes when I suddenly realised they were the wrong names.... I had missed a generation out!! So I need to chart the correct names now before I can stitch them.
The girl's parents evening went very well as we had hoped, nearly all their teachers praised their behaviour and their work. Stuart and I are very proud of how well they are doing. They should be in line for good grades in their GCSEs.
I have also been very lucky and won on a "giveaway" from Bev . I felt a bit of a fraud as it was quite a new blog for me to visit. It arrived today (sorry no photo yet) and it is a Lizzie Kate chart for March. It is the stamp/flip it range and it looks really nice. Trouble is now I don't just want to do March I want to do all the months! Then I could have a lovely frame on display that I change the picture in every month!! Add them to the wish list!!!!!!!!!!
So until next time, happy stitching........

Wedding Row looks great and so do the chickens!
I'm glad you caught the mistake on your family tree too!

Tammy said...

Ginnie, Wedding Row looks FABU and those little chickens are too cute!

Wendy said...

Your wedding row looks so great! You did a great job on it.
Love the chicken too you've stitched.

Jean said...

Wow- finding the "almost mistake" is huge - what a difference that will make.

I tell you - I don't know how you get so much stitching done. I have done about 50 stitches on a little piece in the time you have done all the things you mentioned! I'm so impress. Lovely work as always!

I think it's fine that you won when you only just discovered the site - you are so good about commenting, I'm sure you'll be back there commenting (especially since you won!!) Good luck collecting all the months!
