What I am working on

As promised a little photo update.
I was going to post a photo of the jacket I am stitching Laura using the pattern I showed earlier but it is in dark navy and I can't get a great photo in this light with flash on. I also need to finish the sleeve edge, so a photo of that will have to be another time.
So just cross stitch this time.
Here is my progress on the Disney Dreams Sleeping Beauty - this is quite a challenge, on 18 ct aida with lots of colours so it is slow going but I am loving how it is turning out.

Then this is the birth sampler I have only just started. It is from World of Cross Stitching 188. The toys have either blue or pink added bits. This is for a work colleague whose wife is due to have their first baby the end of July. They don't know yet if it is a boy or girl so I am just doing the colours that are in both versions.

As for an update on my life in general, well nothing has really changed since the post in 2013. The girls are now in their final year of University and will be graduated in the summer. So I aim to sew me a nice dress for both graduations ! They plan on coming back home. Laura wants to do an MA in Antiquity at Birmingham Uni (part time) and work part time. Becki wants to come home to work and then in 2016 do an MA in ballet studies at Roehampton Uni in London. This is the plan but neither have sent in their applications yet. Will be strange to have a full house again and I have no idea where all their acquired stuff will go !!
Until next time
Ginnie xx
