It's stitched!

I really wanted to get this one finished in 2008 but it just didn't happen.

I had told myself i wont be able to start the Beatrix Potter SAL until this was stitched and the PAP SAL finished. I put the last stitch into The Peacock Chair today, i just need to read thoroughly through the instructions on how to make it up and hope that i dont make a mess of it. Not sure i will be able to wait till the PAP is stitched though, lots of ladies are showing WIP pics and i am keen to put the first stitch in.

We're experiencing some really cold weather here in the UK and they are predicting it to be worse for the next few days, i cant remember it this cold for a long time.

Hedwig (our pet name for Mr Moe as he really does look like an owl when sitting in our pear tree!) can be found staring up the chimney! Do you think he's wondering where he can get his hands on some 'floo powder' so he can transport himself to somewhere nice and warm and be pampered? I'm not sure he'll want to end up in Diagon Alley though, he might find some undesireables there...

Sunday today and that should mean an update of the CCN SAL with Karen. Sorry but no pic today as i'm planning to stitch this weeks night this evening.

Hope you all had a nice weekend and that the UK ladies are keeping warm and cosy.

Congrats on getting the stitching on your Peacock Chair finished. I'm sure it'll be fantastic when you put it together. Just take your time and make sure you're not tired when you do it.

Well done on getting the stitching finished, just take one step at a time, and wait for the glue to dry thoroughly before moving on to the next step. If you get stuck just give me a shout. YOU CAN DO IT!!! LOL

Karen said...

he looks quite happy hogging the heat lol
I can't wait to see the chair finished

Sally said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the chair made up Julie. It looks so pretty.

Mr Moe looks rather happy there staring at the fire:)

It is definitely staying by the fire weather although DH and I have decided to get out walking after our evening meal to try and get fit and lose a bit of weight! He'll be moaning this evening I bet! LOL!
