I finished the main stitching on Friday and took it off the frame to do the hem stitching around the edge.... then decided I was happy with it as it was without doing all that fiddly cutting of fabric etc.... I declared it completely finished!! I want to finish it as a bell pull so need to get some "ends".
The frame is now waiting with a fresh piece of fabric on, to start one of the HAED charts!!! I have decided to work on Candle Lights first and I intend to have a Sunday HAED night. I intend to start tonight but want to do a little more on Henry first as I was out last night with my dear friend Steve and got no stitching done at all!! Update on Henry on next post (I have started Catherine Howard's head !!)
I also thought I would show you a picture of my Lilliput Lane cottage that I have been working on for the Step-a-long SAL. Most of the cross stitch is complete but there is so much darn fiddly back stitch everywhere I'll be just about finished by Christmas!!
Thanks for all the well wishes for Laura'a appointment. All went well except the hospital had forgotten to tell us that the appointment had actually been re-scheduled and that the letters had failed to go out.... so we could either sit and wait or come back in July!! As I had booked the day off and we had made the effort to go by train we decided to sit and wait (2.5 hrs!!) But there was no change with her heart/valve leak and they said we will discuss next year whether to continue her check up after age 16 at adult cardiology clinics. The only thing he did say was that in the future if she gets pregnant she will have to be monitored more as that can put extra stress on you heart and valve leaks can get worse. But I'll worry about that another time!!
I have been busy in the garden again today so am looking forward to relaxing tonight and doing some more stitching. Next week it's back to Wedding Row, I hope to get most of this done as June will soon roll around.
Anyway until next time.
