A cute puppy square

Many thanks for all your kind comments about the Wedding Row picture. The wedding went well despite the awful weather, it rained really heavy all day here and was pretty cold for June. The bad weather caused a lot of traffic on the way to the church and made Helen 20 mins late arriving !! Dave was beginning to panic !! But they had a great time still. Here are a couple of photos, the one of Helen and Dave dancing shows a little of how lovely her dress and hair was.
And here is their baby, Grace with her grandma. She looked really sweet in her pretty dress, although she looks grumpy on this photo.... probably fed up with having her picture taken!!
Now to my stitching progress from last week, I finished my Margaret Sherry puppy square for the Stitch for Charity group. Isn't he so cute?
I also did really well on my Country Idyll stitching and although I didn't quite get all the path etc done at the bottom I did get all the back stitch on the car and house finished. I love how realistic it looks, that car door that is opening looks almost 3D.
This week Henry is back out, yeah I hear you say! I have also made another little, small start...... Lizzie Kates - Friends are Angels. I have been wanting to do this for ages and thought "oh well another WIP won't matter" !!!!
On Thursday night we are off to see Chicago in Birmingham, I bought these tickets as extras for the girl's birthday, so we are all really looking forward to it. Jimmy Osmond is playing the role of Billy Flynn, I loved Jimmy as a child so am excited that he is in it.
Happy stitching.

Ooo the dilemma of new starts. I dunno whether to do a small or try to finish this months targets...you may have swayed me. Fantastic stitching and wow...what a wonderful wedding dress.
Enjoy your evening out!

Looks like she was a lovely bride and was a lovely event despite the rain (isn't' rain on a wedding suppose to be good luck?). Your stitching is coming along - the pup is cute and the car does look like it is just going to drive out of the canvas! I am sure Chicago was enjoyable, look forward to your review.
Take care!
