Hello! I have now emerged from a wonderful 3 day weekend with some stitching progress to show off! The weather was fantastic and both Hubby and I had a very lazy, do nothing but stitching weekend! My favourite kind of weekend :o)
As you probably read in my last post, I have recently been stitching on my "Faces of JE Mystery SAL" piece again and over the weekend I just kept on going with this one! I am finding it hard to put it away this time....
I was supposed to take a photo on Friday night before I started stitching, and another one after my Friday night effort, so that I could do a Friday Frolics post... but I forgot! So this post is covering my FF stitching as well as a general update on my SAL piece.
When I posted last week after IHSW & FNSI my SAL piece looked like this:
She now looks like this:
I have now started filling in her skin by stitching 1 over 1 which is taking a bit of time..... (as it does!!) I have so enjoyed stitching on this fairy which means I have to make a decision as to whether to keep it out for another few days or swap her for another WIP that is sitting in the basket.
Before I go I must show you a couple of pics.... one is of the gorgeous roses that I picked from the front garden on Sunday. Our roses are starting to show off their Spring colours and they look amazing...
And secondly, seeing as I showed you a picture of Oscar enjoying the sun the other day.... I really should show you the other two.... Felix and Mitzi on guard in Daddy's office..... Have no idea what was outside that was attracting their attention but they are certainly intent on something!
Speaking of Mitzi - I have to tell you what her favourite movie is at the moment: 101 Dalmatians.
We had the telly on the other night and the 101 Dalmatians movie was on while we were doing the dishes - next thing I noticed Mitzi sitting by the couch watching the TV! I managed to grab my phone without disturbing her and took a video of her watching all the puppies. She even barked when the 2 baddies appeared!!! Don't think she likes Hugh Laurie and Mark Williams anymore!! I was amazed at how glued she was to the movie! So cute too.... She often watches the TV but this is first time she has sat for so long...normally after 10 mins or so she loses interest but not this time. I think she ended up watching almost the whole movie!!
So that's for today! See you again next week when hopefully I will have some more stitching to show you!
Ta-ta for now.... happy stitching!
