Progress on Bouquet 3 has been slow and steady. I'm at that stage again where I'm really not taken with the colours, but I know that when it is finished and the back stitch done, it will be much improved.
This week I managed to do three blocks on Carnation with some good overlap into the blocks below. I have one full block and one partial block left to finish row 1, which should be possible this week as I am only out one night. I haven't set myself any deadlines for finishing this page - it is just so nice to be able to work on it again.
Finally I promised you some stash. Courtesy of Ebay, I am delighted to present Heritage Crafts' "Topiary Rose" by Valerie Pfeiffer (thankfully on evenweave) and Lavender & Lace's "Celtic Christmas". Both are beautiful pieces and I look forward to finding the time to stitch them.
In other news, I lost 0.5lb last week, which means that I have now lost 1lb since I started. I've also spent a couple of days out and about in the country doing genealogy research, so I feel that I can report progress on all fronts.
The weather seems to be a complete toss-up between gorgeous and diabolical, so I'll wish you sunshine for stitching and a gentle rain for your gardens.
