I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Friday Frolics - Faces of Joan Elliott #1

Hi there! Happy Saturday!  I am so happy that Saturday is here... I only had 4 days at work this week as Monday was a public holiday, but that was enough to exhaust me!! Goodness knows how I am going to go next week when it's a full 5 day week!! :)

Last night was the first time in ages that I remembered to take a photo of my stitching starting point so that I could do a Friday Frolics post!  This year I am going to try and use my Friday night stitching as more of a focused stitching time with a hope/plan that I might get a long forgotten WIP finished.  This month's WIP that I want to focus on is the "Faces of Joan Elliott SAL" that I started back in 2014!

My starting point last night looks like this:


I worked on the "Holly Fairy" in the bottom corner and she now looks like this:

I managed to get a bit more of her hair stitched.  Let's see how I go next Friday night.  This piece will stay out for the whole of January so hopefully I will get that block finished during that time.


Til then, happy stitching and may the frog stay far, far away
Hugs xx

Gorgeous work. I got stuck on this one because I didn't like the fat cat but couldn't decide what to replace him with.
Every time I see your's I want to get it out and have another go!
