Week 11 of the LHN SAL with Karen. I stitched the green leaves to complete the left hand side this time. Next week will be 3 months since we started this one!
Happy Summer to you all .... and not a great start to it here. It's quite cool and been drizzling rain since the early hours. What has happened to Mother Nature and the lovely seasons we had when i was a child? It doesn't help that DD keeps reminding me how lovely it will be for her to be on the beach in Tenerife on Friday enjoying some real summer sunshine for a week ... ggrrrrr LOL
As some of you know, DH and i are on the committee for the local Fruit/Veg/Craft show that is to be held 30th August this year. Both of us have been exhibiting things for the past few years with some success. Each year the stitchy club contributes raffles prizes and gifts as their contribution as it is held in the Community Centre where we meet each week. This year i have been asked to make a biscornu to accompany the shield for the best in the handicraft section and a bookmark to accompany the donated book by Sarah Raven for the best in the cookery section. The shields have to be given back after the year and this way the winner gets to keep something as a reminder of their win forever. I've sorted fabby/threads/chart for the bookmark and made a start on that this morning so watch this space for a quick finish so long as all this rain doesn't bring Mr Frog into my stitching space LOL
Hope you all have a lovely weekend
for your visit, it's very much appreciated
p.s apologies to those of you on google reader, i bet you have 3 or 4 entries for this posting, blogger seems to have had a problems posting my WIP pic, but i think it's now sorted
