Weekend Catch Up

Good evening bloggers πŸ™‚

Grabbing a quick few minutes to update from the weekends stitching while Elizabeth is occupied. She’s got a dreadful cold and wants cuddles and snuggles with Mammy, although totally wonderful, it doesn’t leave much time for jobs and chores let alone stitching or knitting !. But as they grow the cuddles and snuggles are becoming less 😦 so I have to take advantage of them while I can πŸ˜‰

Anyway stitching this weekend revolved around Ian’s hunting picture and now that the dreadful hopping all over the place green was out of the way I could get started on pieces together. I worked on this Friday and Saturday night. I’m still not feeling the love with this project and only its for hubby I’d most likely chuck it in a corner lol but for him I’ll continue on.

I’ve also been working on my ornament for January and I fear it won’t be complete this month as each time I sat to this I got called away. Some days are just like that and I’m sure the time will be made up on it in February, good job I started them early lol. I’m not sure on the finishing I want on this so I may finish stitching it and when I decide on something make it up then.

Then on Sunday night I hauled out my beloved Mrs Darcy Sampler. I’ve decided for theme a licious February where it is Fangirl February that this is my project I’m going to work on and I have one other Darcy and Elizabeth piece I want to start as a dedication to them as we all know I am a MASSIVE FAN lol..but you’d not have guessed that right! lol. More on that on Tuesday or Wednesdays post. Here is the updated picture.

That’s been my weekends stitching and thank you all for your lovely comments from last week. I’m glad so many of you are enjoy Mrs Darcy as much as I. Course Mr Darcy isn’t so bad either *devilish wink πŸ˜‰

Happy stitching,

  2. I'd say you made excellent progress with cuddles and snuggles along the way! Hope little Elizabeth clears up soon. I too have a mild cold with a stupid cough that won't go away. 😦
