2 finishes and an exciting weekend.

As usual I have had a busy few days but have managed to clock up 2 finishes aswell.
I'll start with my stitching I didn't get much of my Mermaid done in the end so I won't show any photos of that. I decided instead to get Ballerina and Spring Cushion finished as they were so close to completion.
So here is the Ballerina, I love it now it is done as the colours seem to work well after my initial doubts. This is to be made into a cushion for Becki.

Then here is my Spring cushion, in plenty of time for next Spring!! The colours in this are so pretty. I have all four seasons to do so will start on Summer next but probably not until the New Year.

Now to my busy weekend...... firstly on Friday I went to see The Rocky Horror show with my dear friend Steve. We have seen this many times before in the 1980s and early 90s but this was our first trip for many, many years!! I still wanted to dress up.... I wore my fishnets but they aren't in the photo!!! It was so great, the show was fantastic and the atmosphere was amazing. Here is a photo of Steve and me before we left and then under that is a photo from 1986/7 before one of the first shows we went too! Fun times.

To finish off my great week it was Becki's dance show. I went with her to the dress rehearsal on Saturday then the whole family went to watch on Sunday afternoon. She was in 9 dances in total, 2 with the younger children she teaches and the rest with her own class. She was fantastic, we were all so proud of her. I have no photos yet as a professional photographer was hired to take loads of shots and we'll have copies in a few weeks. She was even more thrilled when for the Finale she was chosen to be on the front row as one of the stars. Needless to say today she is exhausted.

Happy stitching.

The Ballerina is beautiful. I love the colors of the fabric along with the threads. The light blue shows up enough to create the illusion of being a see-through material of the dress. I know that Becki will treasure it!
Love that you guys dressed up and went to Rocky Horror - see, we moms and dads never grow up!
Take care!
