Froggie Update!

Hello all, happy bank holiday!

As you might expect, I'm using my day off stitching!

Early in the year I wasn't making great progress on Frogs Kissing (part of the HAED SAL), so I put it away for a while and had a break.  However, during the last week or two, I've made some really good progress on my frogs and now left frog has a foot!

I haven't got a name for them yet, so sticking with left frog and right frog for now.  Think I may re-pick up Sammy Squirrel this week so I'm not too far behind when page 3 comes out next week.  

Happy Stitching! xx

Samantha is Framed!

Hello all,

I've had a busy April and at the beginning of the month I sent Samantha off to be framed.  Here she is double mounted:

And here she is on the wall of my craft room - as you can see my feature wall is a bit pink but it's not quite as bright as that I promise!

Since completing her, I started 2 new designs - Playtime Kitten and Sammy Squirrel.  I've not made much progress on the kitten, but here's where I'm up to on the Gecko Rouge SAL stitch 2 over 1 tent stitch on 25 count magic guide:

The second page is out now and I intend stitching the tail over the 2 pages.  Don't you just love how that eye pops out!

I've also done a tine bit of Lakeside Village but not enough progress for a photo.  It was nice just to stitch something with some colour in it because all my designs this year have been white, grey and brown so far!

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

Happy Stitching!
