SAL’s, Finishes, Parties and Award

Well this  week has been super busy. What with getting ready for heading to Heathers party and looking forward to Lucie coming to visit and having a much needed catch up with Tricia, then there was the finishing of projects and the starting of stitch a longs, I’ve been very busy.

First things first were the stitch a longs I started with Lucie and Heather.
On Friday nights we work on Little House Needleworks Ornaments.

On friday night just gone I worked on Red House in Winter.
This is my progress so far and I’m expecting to finish it next Friday.

On Saturday at the party in Heathers we were able to have a live Stitch a Long, its not often we get to do that ! Our Saturday project is Liberty Lane by Country Cottage Needleworks.

As I said I also had some finishes.
First finish was for the Lizzie Kate Exchange Blog My piece was for Elisa and I can show you now as she has safely received it.
