HAED SAL week

This weekend saw the start of the final Freebie SAL weekend for Enchanted Garden and about 3 others, think one is called Dragon Luck. I had started this as cross stitch but I just couldn't get on with it, and was wondering why I was getting headaches, well I finally figured out that the charts were too small and now that I have enlarged them, this one seems to be going really well.

This is how far I got on Friday Evening, it was slow going, but I only did a couple of hours on her.

This is todays work on her. I started at 8am this morning, as Nick and the kids went of to Cheshire for the day, to watch car racing. I am about to start stitching on her again, as no one will be home til gone at least 9pm tonight, so glad the boys don't have school tomorrow, they are gonna be tired.

Today has been a very blissful day, as well stitching, I went over to visit a friend who has a puppy (black lab called Maisie), who is just adorable and can't wait to go over for another visit. She was sooo playful, I tired her out, as she fell asleep on my lap outside hehe.

There is another HAED 6 month freebie SAL, which starts next month, I soooooo can't wait, but not gonna tell you what its called, until we get started. Thanks for all you lovely comments on the previous post, it lovely to get them, they are really appreciated,a nd the keep me stitching. TFL xxxxx

Mermaids and Wedding Happiness WIPs

Here are my updates for the week. As you can see Mermaids is coming on in slow leaps and bounds lol. I am still loving stitching these 2 lovely ladies, but I am alternating them with a wedding sampler for a friend who is getting married in July. I shall be cracking on with Mermaids tonight.
This next piece is called Wedding Happiness, it's a couples hand with the name and date at the bottom, once I get there of course lol. This is the ladies hand, and a bit of the mans fingers. This piece is stitching up nice and quickly so I am hoping to have it finished by the middle of next week.

I do have 2 other pieces that are new and will have to be started soon. One is a Charlies Ark Birth sampler for my baby cousin once removed Tristan, who was 1 last month, so I would like to get it done this yr, and it will be a little late, but will start it once the other one I have has been started and finished.

The other piece is called, Heavy Eaters by Heritage, it has 3 Elephants on it. The boys school teacher is leaving at the end of term so that will be the next one to do after the wedding one is done. Good job these 2 pieces are small lol, or they would be late too
