Stitching finishes

Sadly this post starts with some very sad news - my Dad passed away on 18th April. I can't post any more just now but I will.

My step-dad is also in hospital which is a worry for my Mum. Hopefully he will be home later this week.

I have finished all of Dusty's angels for the Needlecraft Haven Mini RR as they were lovely to stitch.

I'll post it off to her tomorrow along with Jaclyn's RR from Needlecraft Haven - I am a little slow finishing it and because Dusty lives across the pond it will be late - sorry Dusty. Jaclyn used the birds from her RR in 2011 as there are 12 so enough left for us to stitch another one for this year's RR.

I finished the third baby gift - Piglet this time for a gorgeous little girl called Sophie. I had the pleasure of cuddling her to sleep at the party for my friend who was 60.

And finally here are my two pieces for the Christmas Tree for April - Grandma and Grandad - the collection is growing nicely.


Thanks for popping by - I'll post again soon.
