Lower Hopes

Well I had high hopes when I started this project and thought I would be able to do at least one flower each week. I now have to admit that my sights need to be lower as I had about 5 hours stitching on this on and off yesterday and I am only a little over half finished with the letter E. I think however if in a 2 week period I can get a letter and maybe a little of the border done then I will have to be content with that. I love all the colours in this and cant wait to get some of the little insects and butterflies added. At least I now feel that I am getting somewhere with it and that I can now see it taking shape.

Off to Mums now and will be back with Barnabee tonight.

Jane if you are reading this - I havent posted your fabric yet as I am hoping that I will get Barnabee finished this week and be able to pop the charts in with your fabric.

Happy stitching everyone, and thanks for visiting.
