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!

Finally a stitching update!

Back again... this time with some photos of my latest stitching exploits.

As I have mentioned in an earlier post, I have actually managed to finish the little Mandala that I was working over the last couple of months... but I had neglected to show you the finished photo once all the beading was finished.

And here it is - all beaded up and waiting for the other two to be stitched so that they can sit side by side in a frame.
"Mini Mandala II - A" Chatelaine
Started April 2013 - Finished May 2013
The other piece of stitching that I have been concentrating on is the "Puppy Love" SAL with the girls over on the MS Lovers Blog.

The last time I showed you a pic was way back in March... and I had nearly finished the centre puppy.  Now that one is finished, as is puppy number 2 and puppy number 3 is well on it's way to being finished!

MS Lovers Blog SAL #4 - Puppy Love
June 2013 update
I must admit that this little puppy has been hard going... but I think I am starting to fall in love with him again. Just needed to get on and start stitching him again!

Well that's it for this little stitching update.  I do have a couple of pixie gifts to show you but I will leave them for another post.

Til next time, happy stitching
