A Finishing Weekend

This weekend we had guests over so I didn’t have a huge amount of time to stitch, but I did find the odd few minutes here and there to finish a few things – two you’ll have to wait to see until they make their way to their new homes, but the third I can share with you. If you remember, Annemarie sent me some gorgeous squares for the Fair and Square exchange we were in, and I rescued them from my ‘to finish’ drawer yesterday. I so love this design that Annemarie stitched, and (even if I say so myself) I think the pinkeep that they became turned out quite well!

There wasn’t a PL update last week as I spent an awful lot of time at work (much more than usual), and my Thursday was completely given over to other endeavours. But I’m hoping to be back on track with it this Thursday.

It’s H’s birthday coming up next week, and we’re going away to the Cotswolds this weekend to celebrate. Obviously the first thing I’m packing will be my stitching, and then my hiking boots and the golf clubs! I plan to bring a little ornament with me to stitch, as it is also Leena’s and my mini monthly ornament SAL this weekend. Perfect, as it will be small and portable! Hopefully I will be able to show you photos on our return (if I manage to finish it).

Happy stitching!
