Just little bits

Just a few little pieces if stitching to show today. I have been working on my Country Idyll this week and have made good progress with the tree. I will work on this a little more tonight and post an update later in the week as usual. I must work on my HAED too tonight as that was supposed to be Sunday night's schedule but I didn't do any last week!!
I have also been busy stitching my charity squares. This is the first one I have completed - a spring fairy from my Fairies in Cross Stitch book. I am now working on a Circus theme one - of a couple of acrobats. Once the circus one is finished I'll post these off before starting number 3!

Today I have spent some time in the garden, a lot of time ironing, some time on Facebook (addicted to the restaurant and farm games!) and have also made my Auntie Jean's birthday card - here it is........

In answer to Jean's question about my girls being identical.... well that's a long story.... the hospital said when they were born that they were non identical. But they were always so similar we doubted this. Then we got involved with TEDS, a twins study who offered free DNA tests to see if they were identical (because apparently hospitals often get it wrong) and the results were 99% definite they were identical!!! Nowadays they strive to look different... which makes life easier for all of us!!

Happy stitching
