Golden Wedding Anniversary

It was my parent's Golden Wedding Anniversary on Friday and we had a wonderful night out. 19 of us (all family) went out for a lovely meal, Stuart made a cake and it was great to see everyone.
Here is the card I made them, they really liked it.

And here is a photo of me with Mum and Dad, I love this photo and am going to get a copy printed to be framed.

As I have had a few days off work I have been able to spend time stitching. I have worked on Henry quite a bit but when I look back at my last post with the last photo of him I'm sure I can't see a huge amount of difference. I will post another photo next week.
I thought instead I would share with you "Safe Haven" I am doing this as a SAL but feel it is really coming along now. It has lots of blended colours and the central part is in 2 threads whereas the outer edge is in 1 thread!

It is my birthday tomorrow so I booked another day off work. I am having a girly day out at the shops then lunch out! Then back to work Tuesday !
Happy Stitching

Henry again

So sorry I have taken so long to update my blog. I had a busy few weekends and have been unwell for over a week.... arhhh ! Started with a sore throat, moved onto a rotten cold.... then today the sore throat came back. Laura has it too and is off college tucked up in bed.
Anyway I decided enough was enough and Henry has to be finished! I have been taking him to my Wednesday stitch club and have tried to work on him at home..... but with being ill and still doing several cards he isn't progressing very fast. But I am determined to not put him away again. All other big projects are on hold until he is done !!!!

Still working on the last 2 dresses... and lots of border still to do. I know it will be lovely when it is done, the last bits just seem to be taking forever!
My friend loved her card, I am now working on my parent's Golden Wedding Anniversary card. They are having a big family meal at the end of the month, which we are all really looking forward too. I'll show the card next time, I should have it finished over the weekend.
Until next time.....
Happy Stitching
