The Zoo, A Finish & Barnabee

We took Oscar on the train to Dudley Zoo yesterday. It was a lovely day and we all had great fun, though Granny's poor legs were aching last night. Oscar took his colours and a colouring book for on the train and of course Granny took some stitching. I finished this little one which was a freebie from Aunty's Attic and is done in Dinky Dyes Desert Sands. I think I will have to do a bit more and pad it out a bit as its not as big as the rest of my squilt squares.

Apart from that I did not get much stitching time yesterday but this morning I was determined to finish part 1 of Barnabee's Quest. I have really enjoyed stitching on this one and cannot wait until I get round to it again in my rota.
I have a couple of little things to do before I start my rota again. I joined in the scissor fob exchange on the Polstitches forum and I have to make a fob for Julia. Quite a daunting task to make something like this for someone who stitches as beautifully as Julia does, especially as I have never made one before.
I also am going to be doing a round robin with dear friends Terri, AnnT and AnnP. We are not officially starting this until May but I would like to get my own piece sorted out before starting my rota again. I will tell you more about my choice later when I am able to show you a picture of what I have done.

Once again thanks to all the lovely people who leave comments, it means such a lot to me.

Barnaby looks great. The more people I see stitching this the more I think I'm going to have to add it to my wish list lol.
