Hello again! I thought I would do just a quick post to show my recent sewing up! I still have a lot to finish but these are a start at least. It's the bigger pieces I'm not sure what to do with so any suggestions would be very helpful.
So I stitched up the Days 6, 7 and 8 of The Little Stitcher 12 Days of Christmas the same as the others. I think these will hang on my tree at Christmas as I don't know where else to display them. I keep thinking I should just give up stitching ( sorry pity party today not really to do with stitching but lack of space and the house feeling cluttered ) but then I think why should I?
I finally finished up Plum Street Samplers Mary's Sampler. I like how this has turned out even though I made a teeny mistake when sewing on those front bits!
The challenge piece for May was The Little Stitcher Merry Christmas Deer and as reveal day was last Sunday I can now show it. You may remember that I stitched this for Chris for our private ornament exchange last year then really wanted to stitch it for me.
Last week I managed to get all my Little Sheep Virtues on display. Love them all!
I'll leave my WIPs until my next post I think but will leave you with a few photos from the mere again! Abi and I popped down on Sunday and whilst there I spotted this rather unusual duck. I had not seen one before so snapped a photo. I only had my small lens on so had to crop it in Photoshop, uploaded it to Facebook and asked a friend if she knew what it was. It turned out to be a rare- ish Red Crested Pochard so we went back the next day to see if we could see it again. This time I made sure I was at the ready with my telephoto zoom lens. When I spotted it it was well out on the mere but gradually it came closer in and I snapped away!
There were lots of ducklings and goslings of varying sizes, Abi's "Buddy", even a sailing dog, but then my DH spotted some cygnets and my day was complete.This baby kept straying away from its parents. Little rebel!
Hope you all had a lovely Spring bank holiday here in the UK and in the USA Memorial Day.
That's all for now.
Until next time.
With much love
