A happy Henry

Henry VIII now has all his wives! All stitched and showing their lovely dresses! I also completed all of the bottom part, the Tudor Rose with the crown on top.

Here is the photo, sorry while it is still on the frame I had to wind up some of the bottom part so you could see all of the people!

And here is a closer photo of the last 2 wives who have been the recent finishes. I was struggling with the brown in the centre of Catherine Howard's dress I ended up having to mark off the chart as I kept losing my place. I know many people do that anyway but I usually don't.

Now just the rest of the border to do. I will get some more done at Stitch Club tomorrow but I also need to finish as Easter Card and start a card for Becki's friend Hannah. So it'll be a few more weeks until my "Happy Dance" finish.... but not long now!

I also made my mum this for Mother's Day. It was a freebie in a recent World of Cross Stitching magazine. I left it right until the last minute and only finished it a few days before. She really liked it though.

Nearly Easter Holidays here, Laura and Stuart break up on Friday but poor Becki has another week to go.... her college had to be awkward!

I will have a few days off over Easter, so that's something to look forward too.

Happy Stitching
