JN Sunday and WIP's

Here's my progress pic from Sunday. I've only worked on this one once before, back in October, and then I completed the white on the right. I was not keen on this, I think it was the stitching of DMC#8 on the linen, it makes it fluff, and not so neat, but now I'm passed that I love the colours. I can't wait for Sunday to work on it again.


And here's my progress on SWAK, I've stitched lots more squares, and now need to fill them in. The last square I filled in needs to be frogged, and that's why I went back to the outline. Easy stitching when you're watching the telly.



And here's SB Garden Roll, I've nearly finished this one, just need to stitch the lace on, and some more beads, and the sun charm of course.


It's 7.40 am, and it's time to head off to the supermarket for the weekly shop. This afternoon I'm going to visit Sally. The last time we planned this, my car wouldn't start, and once before I didn't get there due to car problems, so fingers crossed.

Thanks to everyone who's entered my competition, and if you haven't please join in, there's plenty of time left - see post below.

What gorgeous WIPs you've got on the go! The SWAK made me smile because of all the lines running down at different lengths like they are having a race!

I never stitch with perle 8 - I always use 12 - for some reason is a lot silkier!
