Well the study is still going full steam ahead with 5 assignments written and 1 more to go. Then all I have is the final project which is due on 19th September. My next course will start on 28th September so there won't be much of a break.
I have done a little stitching, but not much :(
I have added a blob of 3371 to the bottom left corner and a bit to the lower middle area. Just telling you in case you can't tell!
|Sweet Pea - Nora Corbett|
Cinderella has a little bit done to the tops of the steps.
|Cinderella - Joan Elliott|
A small amount has been stitched on the Stable.
|Cut Thru Stable - Bothy Threads|
Can you spot the difference here? Don't worry it's only 4 stitches!
|Santa's Village - CCN|
I did finish part 7 of Around the World AND make a start on part 8, woohoo!
|ATW - Papillon Creations|
|Part 7 - upside down!|
Rachael has been bitten by the cross stitch bug too and decided to make a leaving present for her form tutor who is off to London. He has been an amazing form tutor and looked after her so well, especially with diabetes issues so he will be missed by us both. She rooted through my magazines and came up with this design. I haven't a clue which magazine she chose in the end but she personalized it by putting the 'E' on his chest which is his surname.
With a little help from me, she turned it into a cube finish and I made the bow for her which she was happy with. What do you think of her first attempt? I didn't help her at all with the stitching after explaining how to read the chart and to start the thread off. I think she did brilliantly.
Mr E was pleased with it apparently.
