Firstly, i'd like to thank you all for your anniversary wishes for myself and DH.
He arrived home from work on the day with these beauties. The freesia is my all time favourite flower, i love the delicate flowers and the aroma is just devine, you can smell it as soon as you walk into the room.
Today was the reveal for the monthly challenge at NH. This month Christine chose the lovely design from Threadwork Primitives called Valentine. I changed the date to the year DH and i met and gave my little finish to him for our wedding anniversary. He loves it and it is now hanging his side of the bed... bless him. You can see the other finishes in the album here.
Santas Village was out for Parlour night on Wednesday and as i put it away after my evenings stitching there was such a little bit to finish it off. It came out again last night and i added the final stitch and i'm all ready to start Poinsetta House next time.
Friday evening is stocking-a-long with Linda and Catherine. We have a new stitcher joining us Riona, welcome to the group Riona. I'm looking forward to seeing which project you are stitching.
If you have a Christmas stocking in your stash that needs starting, maybe its a WIP or a UFO that you would like to have finished for this holiday season, you are most welcome to join us Friday evenings.
This week a cow arrived to see if she could join the nativity. She looks just like she is asking the sheep and the wise men if she can be part of their little group. It did make me smile to look at it when i took it off the frame. What do you think she might be saying to them? So many possibilities (good and naughty) lol.
Shores has had the most attention this week and its paid off. Block 9 is now complete... yippee!!
It's really looking great now and with only 3 blocks left the end is in sight, maybe i'll get it completed in time to enter into this years Horticultural show in September? That would be good.
Did you have a productive week of crafting? I'm off for a blog reading catch up to see what lovelies you have all been working on since i visited you last. There's bound to be lots of lovely finishes and works in progress for me to ooooh and aaaah at.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend spent with those you love.
