My needles have been busy this week! I finished two more of my Crazy January Challenge pieces. Six down, nine to go.
Here's Lizzie*Kate's Little Cups of Friendship. I'm going to finish this as a flat hanging ornament for my dear friend Michelle at work. She makes lots of cups of tea for everyone sat around her in the office. She is such a kind friend and we have got each other through some bad work days.
Stitched on 27 count Tea Northern Cross linen
using recommended GAST and WDW threads

My second finish of the week came this afternoon just before we set off for my brother's 40th birthday celebration. Our family and his wife's family went out for a meal together. Low key like we have always done things in my family - the perfect celebration.
February's Primrose by Cottage Garden Samplings
Stitched on 32 count Permin linen French Lace
using recommended GAST, WDW and DMC threads
Started 15/1/14, finished 6/4/14
I really love this series and enjoyed every stitch of this one. The linen is quite stiff and with using the variegated threads I felt like I was really creating a museum piece! I am now desperate to start March's Daffodils but really want to make some progress on my WIPs before starting my HAED!
Thank you to everyone who left good wishes for my health on my last post. I'm still feeling a bit under the weather but must go back to work tomorrow. Going to take it easy though and drink plenty of tea!
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend and have a great week planned.
Until next time, keep stitching!
