I have finished Teddies, all I have now to do is stitch it into a cushion, that's a task for tomorrow, I will also make Palace Guard into a cushion. I did not do all the back stitch, I like just having the teddies and a few other items finished this way.
I have decided to work some more on sleeping cats, I have filled in mum cat's ears and done some more on her face. I will work on this tonight and hope to have loads more done. I will stitch on my sampler on our Friday night stitch along, I had added a sunflower, but I don't like the finished look, so I need to rip it out. Fliss has also lent me a Peter Rabbit pattern to go on the sampler, Su whilst growing up collected everything she could of Beatrix Potter.
Last month I saw this design as a "coming next month", so I have had to wait until the magazine was published, I want to make a cushion, we have a magnolia tree in our garden, and after I make this I will place it on our sofa, by the patio doors. I love the colours in this piece, I must be changing, normally I do not stitch pinks or reds.
I had a great day yesterday with Fliss , Josh and Sam,we went shopping, but not for craft, and I did not do much stitching.
Kev is playing golf and will be home at lunch time, so I won't be stitching any today, I have one task for him. But as it is a sunny day, we are hoping to go for a nice walk, maybe down to Portchester Castle, with a coffee on the way home.
My garden is cat free, the nets have stopped them, and as a result they do not come into our garden so much, as I type Grace is sleeping in the sun, we have birds and squirrels back using the feeders, so I am happy again.
