Henry day again.

Good morning everyone........ here is my Henry progress from last week. I don't feel like I have done as much as usual, since my fall I have still not been able to get comfy on the settee...... I end up fidgeting a lot so sitting with a frame hasn't been much fun, I have found it easier to do little bits and bobs.
As you can see I have done a part of the border above Henry (which actually has his name on but it's hard to see) then I have contiuned with Catherine Howard, she now has a face and a bodice!

I also worked on my Lizzie Kate "March" design but have forgotten to take a photo! Here is the progress on my Father's Day card, this is a really simple and enjoyable stitch.


This week I have started a Bang on the Door design but it is a surprise for someone who reads my blog..... so no pictures I'm afraid.

I have got my mom involved in the Stitch for Charity group as she knits. She made a jumper last week that I have just posted off with my first 2 squares. At the weekend she knitted a teddy and I stitched him together last night. Apparently she has made another one now so looks like I'll be stitching up another one soon. They are so cute and very simple, the group like them to add to all their boxes of love they send out with bay clothes etc in.


Hope you all have a good week....
