Sock it to them!

I hope all those celebrating Mothers Day had a lovely day yesterday and you were spoilt by your loved ones.

A wet and windy weekend here in the UK, perfect for curling up on the sofa and putting a few little x's into a project or a spot of knitting.

I finished off hubby's socks...
and as Dani questioned them being for a 'him' on a WIP post, just for you Dani, here he is modelling them, hot off the needles!

A little added to the UFO SAL project, Irish Garden.  All the middle row flower borders are now stitched and a few shamrocks have appeared.  There is still an outer border to be added once the middle borders have been filled in, so lots more to do yet on this one.
A little stitching last week, but not a lot as it was a busy week. 
Two weeks since my last post so there have been two letters added to Nature Alphabet on my Tuesday SAL with Gillie.   
R for rose..... 
and S for sunflower.... 
Just a few more weeks and i'll have a finish...
Wednesday as always is the CCN SAL.  A new start last week as the week before I finished house number 9 in the village - Santa Sleighworks
The new start is Gingerbread Emporium, house number 10, just a few stitches last week.
Nothing to show from the craftshare this time, it's still a WIP and should be finished this week.  There is also a combined project we are all taking part in that i'll share with you soon.
Thanks for visiting,  I hope you have a lovely week.
