No, I'm not moaning about housework in general (although I could) but I am introducing my latest finish "Housework"


Lizzie Kate

Recommended fabric count and DMC threads.

I plan to make this into a hanging thing too.... you'll see what I mean when I have it finished! I ordered some Bell Pull ends yesterday for D for Dancer and some other dowel type rods for this one. I will try to do some sewing over the weekend if the goodies arrive tomorrow.

Although I have a busy weekend ahead, firstly we have mom and dad's dog to look after as they are going away for the weekend. I think tomorrow Laura is going to a St George's Day parade and festival with Brownies so I may go with her. Then Saturday night is our friend's silver wedding party. So I may just want to cross stitch on Sunday not get the sewing machine out!

I have nearly finished stitching Becky's popcorn bear for her card so I must get those made up as their birthday is only just over a week away! I have also worked well on Wedding Row and may finish most of this by Sunday. I'll just have the names and date to fill in then next time. I am running very low on the "old blue paint" colour but think I might just have enough!!

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Cute housework design :o) I have a sign hanging in my living room that says "when I get the urge to clean, I lay down till it passes" Hope you have a good weekend.

What nice cross-stitches you have made! I like to cross-stitch, too (among many other crafts). You certainly must be persistent to finish a project! The one I just finished took a year!

Have a nice day!
