Memories old and new

I've been having one of those days where you get to playgroup and realise you've left the house without putting shoes on the toddler lol

I've finished my ten hours on the World of Sarah Kay. I have to say for some reason I'm just not in love with this one. I don't know why its not a hard stitch, I'm just missing that certain connection with it.

Here it is from before:

And now:

Now looking at the photos its made more progress than I thought but I can't find another picture in between so must be right. Feel a bit happier now!!!

I've also put the finishing touches to Baby Hearts as my Nephew arrived last Friday. I mounted it on a canvas. I just find a home decor one in the shop the right size and remove the canvas picture from the frame. Cover with card and then stretch the fabric over using double sided tape for easy repositioning and staple in place. This one was a tiny bit shorter on excess fabric for stretching round the canvas than I would have liked so I covered the edges with some ribbon I had stashed. For a bit of a cover up job its worked out as a really neat way of finishing.

I also ordered a chart and threads for a stitch that reminded me of my grandma. The thimble Fairy
Isn't she so cute, grandma used to buy me thimbles and the fairy which she adored fairies makes it a perfect reminder for me to stitch. I'll have to dig out my thimble collection to show. The threads with this are gorgeous hand dyed threads with names like lettuce leaf, I looking forward to trying them out. And I know I said I was going to be good and no more new starts but this is going into the rotation rightaway (sheepish grin)

I've already made a start on the next rotation for In the Arms of an Angel so I should have updated sooner but was too keen to stitch not type lol

Oh and I also had to do a work box tidy it had got so full of bits from finished projects, ORT, rubbish, random stitching finishing bits etc etc I couldn't get the lid on. Its now tidy and in order so I can settle down to some nice calm stitching.

Keep stitching...
