The Map

I haven’t had much time for stitching or blogging, but here is where I am up too:

I’m still loving this design! I’m not sure I’ll be able to give it away….

Finished! Anniversary Sampler

Well it is all done, and in plenty of time before the party:

I’m really happy with how this looks! It wasn’t the most fun to stitch but I think my Grandparents will love it.

Here are some progress photos:

I’ve been stitching this on and off for a couple of months and I’m glad it is finished! I have a couple of complaints:

  1. What a rubbish needle they provided. It was so hard to thread, and it didn’t stay gold for long.
  2. The pattern for the most part was fine to follow but for the backstitch they used the same thick black line for each colour. I found myself reverting to the picture to work out what colour I should be using.

Apart from those two comments this was fine to stitch, just not as fun as others I have finished lately. I will try to post a picture of it framed :)

This week I have continued with the anniversary sampler. I have just sown the doves, and I like them!

Here is where I am up too:

I am going to keep stitching this over the weekend. Will update before I put it away.

End of June UFO

This is where I was at the beginning of the week:

This is where I was at the middle of the week:

And here is where I finish the week:

I’m actually going to carry on doing this, just for this week for two reasons:
1. The anniversary is in August, so need to push on
2. The Map I’m working on is also a present, and my F-i-L is coming across next weekend so I need to keep it hidden from him, so it is easier just to keep this one out for another week
