Since my last post I have stitched another 60th gift and two more bookmarks but as they are gifts I cannot reveal them yet .... so what am I stitching?
Well, at Needlecraft Haven we have a virtual stitching room called The Parlour - Barb opens up each Wednesday and usually has some (virtual) cakes, biscuits or other goodies which we can all enjoy worry free 😄
Julie has been encouraging us to stitch on our ufos, unfortunately she has been unwell for a while and doesn't always join us but she does remind us to get stitching when she does 😍
How does this for with the Football? Well I have been opening The Parlour each day and evening so those ladies also using the football time to stitch can have a little peace. It's perfect especially if listening to music using headphones - a virtual stitching world.
I am trying to get my Sampler Bouquet by Jardin Privé finished as I want to put it in our bedroom. All these gifts have slowed me down but I have decided this week's focus while the football is on will be my SB.
I did really well the other evening completing a top motif before I noticed the branches were out on the vase below - first error I have made. Most of that football match was spent frogging which wasn't a bad thing as I was finding it hard to concentrate, the crowd had those whirring noise things 😕

Last night I stitched quite a lot more, just cheering from the crowd which was much better. I am hoping to complete the vase motif tonight, I have no idea who is playing but I don't think it is England.
