Having had a few odd weeks not really doing anything much just a bit of this and that, I have decided to return to my Stitching plan which means on Monday 6th I will be back to working on Joan Elliott's Chrysanthemum Fairy on Mon, Tues, Thurs and Friday until it is completed. On Wednesday I will work on Martha Jones which is the second project on my Stitching plan and the weekends I am going to alternate monthly between Mirabilia Sabrina and January Garnet Fairy. To this end I actually worked on Sabrina this weekend and below is my progress
I am also currently stitching a card as part of my FWC Card Exchange, the theme this time is butterflies and below is my progress to date. I need to get this completed and posted in the next week. I have stitched it on 14ct DMC butterfly aida
This week I also received a prize from a Giveaway that I entered in Cross Stitcher magazine. It is Bothy Threads - Gorjuss The Last Rose kit, it was a really pleasant surprise. I think in the almost 20 years that I have been entering cross stitch competitions and giveaways this is the 5th time I have won anything.
Finally a close up photo of my cherry tree. We planted this shortly after we moved here nearly 11 years ago and it is the first time I have realised what a lovely delicate scent the blossom has. I probably have not noticed it before as usually we have had winds that have blown the blossom away anyway, it is a pretty blossom but also one that smells divine
Well that's it for this posting
Bye for now
