Country idyll

Hasn't Friday rolled around fast again? This week seems to have flown by and I don't feel I have done a lot of stitching. I promised an update of Country Idyll from last week and here it is -


I love the way this is turning out and I'm sure I can get it done well before Christmas.
I have also completed my second square for the "stitch for charity" group I have joined. It was for the circus theme blanket. I am posting this and the fairy one off tomorrow. I have signed up for at least another 3 squares.... but there is no rush for them so I'll take my time and try to get my other stitching done too!



This week I am back stitching on Henry. I had a urge to stitch part of the border on Monday night.... so I did. I just did the part above Henry's head and then back stitched his name on it. Otherwise I am working on wife number 5 again..... I also started a Father's Day card for my dad, it is a crossword puzzle design out of the latest Card Shop magazine. I'll post a picture of that next time.

I have to go to work in a bit... nearly the weekend though. The weather here has turned horrid and cold again.... roll on the sunshine. Have a good weekend everyone.
