Stitchy night

 Last night, I did some more on April, I brought Mill Hill Petite glass beads, white 40479 and pink 42018, I did also buy blue, but found they were the wrong size again.

At the top and bottom, I used the white and pink beads, I wanted a softer look here, but the centres I used just the white, I do like the sharper look here, all I now have to do is stitch the centres, I do have pebble beads for here, but I am going to try the pink Swarovski beads left over from Su's wedding dress. So fingers crossed it will be finished tonight. I have also decided to frame this one.

I am planning a quickie, we are away next week, 4 days in Devon with friends, hubbies play golf for 4 days, ladies have spa and large craft centre, last year I did sandblasting on glass for the first time. So I'm not taking any of my large projects with me, after we have 3 days in Somerset, which is home for me visiting family. I am going to see my sister-in-law who has just got the all clear from her battle with cancer, which pleases all of us. I also get to stay with my brother Martin.

Nothing much happening here, work, garden and family, but that's the way I like it. We are glad to finally get some decent rain, but fingers crossed it clears in the south west for next week.

PS watch this space I have brought the coolest litttle gift for hubby
