Little by little

I haven't blogged for a while, on here or my travel blog Aimetu's. I'm still not mobile and find many things too much just now; reading, stitching, watching tv, so there hasn't been much to blog.

However this last week I have finished a few things and started a new project so hopefully I'll feel like doing a bit more each day.

Little by little - it will all get better. 

So stitching, first of all I have finished the little design Vickie from A Stitcher's Story sent me - it's not made up as I'll be doing all the finishing of my church ornaments in one go. I love it - thank you Vickie it will be perfect on my tree.

My second piece is my Summer stitching for Needlecraft Haven's Four Season's SAL. I loved doing the bright colours. The Gallery is open on NH so I can share it there too and next month we start our Autumn projects, where is the year going?

My other piece is rather special - I had started it just before I had my fall and it needed to be completed for mid May. It was a struggle as I found it so hard to concentrate on the chart. I was very very nervous about finishing it so I did a bit at a time and I was very pleased with it.

It's a wedding sampler for our niece and her new husband who got married in Mexico on May 27th. Natalie is the first of our children's generation in the family to get married, a beautiful setting too.

I had a little surprise gift myself the other day. My stitching friend Mary, whose blog is Le Coeur Celtique and lives in France, made and sent me the most gorgeous project bag. The fabric is absolutely me - thank you Mary.

The project I am working on is for the Needlecraft Haven Meet Up Exchange - this was organised at our Get Together on 22nd April - you can read about it in my previous blog here. We're making scissor keeps this time, I'm half way through the stitching then the exciting bit begins........the finishing!

Thank you for calling by, hopefully I'll be blogging again soon.
