Ladybugs and Bumblebees...

The colours in the photo are not true to life (the weather is cold, wet and dark), but it's finished. It's really pretty, and I'll probably get it framed quite soon.



I also dug out my Long Dog sampler and have put a few stitches in, after a long break from it. I don't know why I felt unmotivated, I adore it and it's so enjoyable to stitch. I'd like to get it finished this year since I have the year stitched already. I still haven't finished Drawn Thread's Lily of the Valley, and it has 2005 on it. :0)



Hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend!

Congratulations on the happy dance - it looks lovely, so pretty! And the Long Dog is lovely too. Such fun colours. It does look like it'd be a lovely stitch to do :)

It is very pretty, Rowyn. COngrats on the finish! Vibes for stitching on Long Dog. My penguins piece is like that - it's a fun stitch but if I put it down it takes some real determination to pick it back up again, LOL

What a pretty finish! Congrats!

I found your blog through a comment on another blog (I saw your kitty's picture), but I'm really glad I stopped by because you have some lovely WIP that I'll enjoy watching your progress.

And Tess is a beautiful kitty!
