Stitching has been a little more productive this week, not a lot but a little ....
The SAL's i'm doing received some attention this week. The weekly Sampler Girl 'In the Meadow' had it's usual Wednesday evening attention at the stitch club, but unfortunately we had a heated debate about the recent Terry Pratchett TV programme on assisted suicide so not a lot was stitched. It was a very thought provoking programme and gave me food for thought in the days after its airing, did anyone else watch it?
Shores also had a little time spent on it, more of a blank square than a finished one for June i think with this, never mind, i'll catch up.
No longer a figment of my imagination, but a reality, the June monthly ornament got stitched and made up. It couldn't be more simpler, but at least it's a finish and i'm still on track for one a month. I can't remember where this free one came from, can anyone help?
I'll have to try and remember to take a pic of the 6 ornaments i have so far this year all together, it's a nice collection.
Unfortunately, the monthly challenge has escaped me this month, sorry Christine, i didn't even get as far as printing the chart off!
This weekend the UK has been basking in the hottest days of the year so far, over 30 degrees and way too hot and humid for me and especially for little Isabelle, she is struggling keeping comfy and sleeping, but weighs in now at a healthy 8lb.
I heard on the news today that they are predicting a good thunderstorm to end this mini heatwave later today, that'll suit me just fine and also my garden.
It's a good job DH is handy with a watering can - although we are supposed to be having a ban on using water on the gardens if we dont get a good amount of rain - washing up water does help to keep my plants in pots looking nice, i have a pair like this that i can see from my kitchen window, so bright and cheery to look at.
Before i close this post today, i really wanted to share something that arrived in the post for Amy and Isabelle.
This was stitched by Kathy, she doesn't have a blog to show off her work, but i really wanted you all to see how beautiful it is. Kathy does read my blog, and i'd like to say thank you Kathy, Amy is really delighted with it and i'm sure the other readers here will also think you have done a lovely job.
DH commented that it really does look like Isabelle and i must admit, i have to agree with him, it does!
Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to the new visitors, it's always nice to see that someone new stopped by for a quick read.
