Catching Up

Morning Bloggers from an extremely wet Ireland.

Just realised this morning I hadn’t updated my stitching earlier in the week.

Last week I started the fishing piece on its 10 hour rotation and that’s all I seemed to have gotten stitched last week.
I’m back to half stitches in one and two strands so its taking a bit of concentration but getting there.

Fishing – before

Fishing – after

Next on the rotation is the Gorjuss kit for Elizabeth’s birthday next month. I’ve not worked on this since its turn in January so it needs cracking on with so its ready in time. The rotation is not complete on this, it needs another 5 hours work but here is where it is at the moment and where it started from.

Gorjuss – before

Gorjuss – after

In other news, it was our wedding anniversary on Sunday gone, 12 years married this year, seems only like yesterday. This afternoon Dominic sits his first piano exam so we are wishing him all the best for that and we have a surprise party planned for afterwards for him. Pictures to follow of that next week.

Happy stitching,
