It is definitely harder to find time to do small things these days, but today I have managed to give my cross stitches a quick once over with the iron so I can share them here.
First up is Sailing Mice by Margaret Sherry. I have long loved these little mice and having a baby seemed like the perfect excuse to stitch them. This design is destined for the wall of Annabelle's room. I had been going to frame it while I was on leave awaiting her arrival, but as mentioned in my last post she turned out to be an early bird (just like her Mum and Dad - DH and I are always early for everything - even when we try not to be, lol).
I also finished up LHN's Old Nantucket a while back. I love the colours in this one and the fabric (WDW Cocoa). This was such a pleasurable stitch (you can tell I enjoyed it, because I don't often finish large designs within a year!).
I was making some great progress on my Scarlet Letter piece - Freelove Hazard. That's come to a bit of a halt, but I hope to get back to it soon.
Annabelle has been inundated with love, kindness and gifts from all around the world in the five and a half weeks since she arrived. Last week a squishy package turned up in the letterbox all the way from Cornwall! The lovely and generous Nicola sent Annabelle this beautiful jersey and a card featuring Poppy and Blue! :-) I can't wait until Annabelle is big enough to fit it. Thank you again Nicola for this gorgeous gift!
Annabelle is starting to stir, so I'd better make tracks. Thanks for reading!
