Fleur Etui

Just a quick post, not had much time to stitch.  My 15 year old dislocated his knee again at school.  Second time in three months so we have spend two days visiting the hospital and now he has a full leg cast on for at least a month.

I did start the Fleur  Etui

That is two of the panels finished

I have stitched a bit more of the Blossom Harvest as well but not enough to take another picture and show you.  I will add it to the next post.

Four Jubilee weekend here, we were going to Dover Castle but now Jack has injured his knee we will have to stay home.  He will not be up to all that walking.

Here is an update of my blossom Harvest by Mirabilia

She is coming on nicely mind you I am begining to wish I was not using 32ct fabric.  I may have to stick with 28ct in the future.

I received the magazine for the Cross Stitch Guild the other day and there is a project in there I REALLY want to stitch.  Never made anything like this before but I so want to make this.

This is the inside and this

is Fleur Etui box closed.  Sorry about the picture.

It is beautiful.

Cakes Cooked

What a busy week with very little stitching time but I did get time to finish the Country Cottage Needleworks Party Cakes.

Now I need to find t he right frame.  It was a lovely easy stitch just like all the CCN charts.

Here is an update on my Mirabilia Blossom Harvest

Unfortunately I did not get to stitch on my Late Stroll project but will make sure I do this week.  I really want to start one of the samplers I have but trying to be good and stitch a bit more on the pieces I have started.

three updates

Three updates for you

First my Party Cakes
This would have been finished but I don't think I have enough of the Crescent Colours for the bottom band so I will have to wait until I get some more of this colour.  I did not want to do most of it and find the colour difference was very noticeable so hopefully you will see the finished one in my next post.  I will try and take a photo of it so the lines are straight.  LOL

Next is A Late Stroll
I have been very good and stitched all the stitches in the top left hand corner even the single ones.

It is going to look great when finished.

Last update is my new start.
Mirabilia's Blossom Harvest.

This has been waiting in my stash for a few years so about time I started it.  

Don't forget to enter the giveaway from Yiota, there are hundreds of charts you could choose from if you are the winner.  The winner will be able to choose three charts from Yiota's website.
