This little free chart from Shepherds Bush is the design i chose to stitch for Karan for her birthday earlier this month. Forgetting she was going to be away on her hols for her birthday, i forgot to post the parcel so it arrived before she left.
Now that she is home and it's arrived safely (thank you Royal Mail) i can share it with you. The yellow gingham fabric was not my first choice of fabric for it, but i'm gald i stuck with it, it looks really summery and turned out quite nice and was a lovely design to stitch. I seem to be having quite a few SB little finishes recently.
The fruit and veg show is drawing closer. Tonight we have another meeting with the committee at my home. I thought i better make the sampler a priority and i put the finishing touches to it this weekend. It's a fun job to think of different things to put into it, you never know if a crafter, a flower grower or a fruit and veg grower will win the Best in Show. Just need to find a nice frame for it now.
We've had a busy weekend, DD had an allergic reaction to some antibiotics, they were changed and she is on the mend now. DS was away with friends for a long weekend in Portsmouth and DH had Friday and Monday off work. We got some jobs done that we had been meaning to for a while. Friends came over Sunday afternoon and a visit from my brother yesterday. Evenings i was too tired to stitch so the knitting came out and i finished off the second sock. I'm really proud of my first pair knitted on 4 pins and will definately be doing more.
News from DD's place .... the temporary toilet will be replaced with the new one this evening and on Friday the inspector will be out to see the standard of work that has been done and make a list of what is still outstanding. I did ask if the date could be changed as i really dont want to be there getting all stressed out on Friday, i had other plans for that day, some of you will know all about that, but i'll leave the rest of you in suspense till next time to tell you what is supposed to be happening on Friday.
I better get off here now and go and get ready for my yoga class this morning. Mum is coming over for lunch today too, and then we have the meeting this evening, going to be a busy day again, enjoy your day whatever your plans
