That's a bright and cheery hello from me today as I am on a week's leave from work - enjoying some family time with my sons and of course I have squeezed some stitching time in too!
No finishes to show you this month but I do have a new start to share - this was started in March and will be a gift for my friend Katy. I have been good friends with Katy for over 15 years but have never stitched anything for her! Her Dad was a keen stitcher before he passed away and I know she would appreciate the time and effort, I've just never found the right design, until I saw this one.
Let's Party by Ursula Michaels
Started 19 March 2016
Stitched on 16 count Margarita aida by Sew it All
with recommended DMC threads
Though we don't go out together as much as we used to, we have always enjoyed a cocktail or two, so I'm hoping she will love this as a reminder of some tipsy adventures!
I can also share some more Rocket progress here, as this one is going to be a gift for my eldest son. This is the only project I'll be stitching on in April, and at the halfway point of the month I've gone from here at the start of the month...
I'm really pleased with my progress and I'm already planning to continue stitching next month in the hopes of having this finished by the end of the year.
