The start of June sees us on holiday in France, all our trips and visits are in my 'Aimetu's - wine, food and travels' blog, but before we left I had two birthday gifts to finish.
This year seems to be full of special birthdays for my friends - birthdays are always nice but zeros are the best! This year already there has been a 40th and two 60th - there are two more 60th, a 30th and a wedding so my 2018 is full of gifty stitching.
The first gift was for my friend who is recovering from a back operation, although she isn't celebrating a significant birthday I wanted yo stitch her a gift. This is a freebie chart from Victoria Sampler I have stitched it many times, it us quick and enjoyable to do.
My other gift was for my very good wine friend who is celebrating the big 60. I wanted something wine related and remembered this chart on an old magazine. The label names were originally in Italian but my friend loves Spanish wine so I changed the lettering.
As we're on holiday I have of course brought some stitching, another gift hee hee as there is another 60 birthday at the end of June. I don't stitch a huge amount when we're away and this being a little something it was ideal to bring. I'm nearly done too which means I might have time to make a start on another project I brought with me, especially as the forecast is unsettled for the next few days.
I hope your June started well, hard to believe we are nearly halfway through 2016 and it will soon be the longest day of the year!
