Hi folks, this is just a quickie - I don't have a lot to show having been poorly earlier in the week. I'm a lot better now, but not quite 100% yet.
However, I do have a finish to show you. This is the completed Wheelbarrow Bouquet. Once again the back stitching has made a big difference to the finished piece. I am now putting the rest of this series (another four pieces) on hold while I work on littlest niece's fifth birthday present.
This, Enchanted Garden by Joan Elliott, will, if things go according to plan, be a start to show you in my next post. I'm currently in the process of setting up my thread organisers and putting my project box together.
The only other piece that I have to show this week is Carnation - the usual three blocks. The coming week will take me on to row 8, and I'm still on target for finishing this page before the second anniversary of this piece.
I didn't manage to put any stitches into Train of Dreams, Serena or my Turkish Challenge piece this week. To be honest, I think that I've spent more time sneezing and sniffling than anything else. And now they are talking about more snow! I just want sunshine and warm weather, and to be able to breathe freely! We've also just had a bereavement in the family so there will be a funeral to attend in the near future. I really wanted this year to be an improvement on the last, but so far there doesn't seem to be much sign of it.
Anyway, I hope that all is well with you and yours - keep calm and keep stitching.
