Sisters at the seaside

I worked hard on my All Our Yesterday's piece last week to get it complete for my mom's birthday. It is called Sisters at the Seaside and it is so lovely I am very pleased with it. The last bits of white and lilac on the wall were a bit of a pain, but I persisted.
Here it is:
And here's a close up of the 3 girls.
I also have a little Christmas finish of a cute dog playing in the snow. I will be making this into a ornament for the tree but mom has the sewing machine at the moment, so I will do it another time.

I have just started another of the Lizzie Kate Fpit-its. I have been a bit slow with these again and have none to hang up for October or November, so I have started December.... that should give me plenty of time to get it ready.

I have stitched my fabric to the big frame ready to start my Poppy Pixie chart that I had last Christmas, but no start on it yet. I also have a Joan Elliot fairy chart out and ready, it is from an old 2005 magazine I have wanted to do for ages. But I really must get Henry out again I seem to have been very slow with him..... I have lost a bit of enthusiam and must get it back!

Happy stitching

Ginnie xx

I just adore AOY, esp when they were dmc and had the slightly more muted colours. I have this one in my pile of 'to do' and hope to get round to it eventually. It looks gorgeous - well done. (and a cute doggie :) )

Your AOY cross stitch is gorgeous, well done. It reminds me of my three sisters and I when we were little.
Love the little doggie, can't wait to see him made up into an ornament.
