Queen Update

For some reason the flowers either side of the crown were not wanting to grow in my garden and for every three stitches i did I seemed to frog 2 of them. To make matters worse(curse, curse) I have just noticed I missed 4 stitches in one of the flowers on the bottom left hand side. Its amazing how you can look at something and not see it, then you put a photo up and hey presto it shouts out to you and you wonder how you could ever have missed it. Thank goodness the rabbits (they look more like hares to me) were well behaved. I did not carry on and do the verse as I want to alter it slightly (well you know me, I have to alter everything).

I am now doing my UFO and have been good and done two of the ivy leaves so far. I must admit I am bored with stitching them but I will try to be good and do at least one more before moving on to the next letter.

With only a week to go and so much to sort out before my holiday then I dont think there will be much stitching done. I am just going to stick with the UFO (make up for the weeks I will be missing) and maybe try and do Queen next Sunday instead on Monday.

Thanks to all those who left comments, especially about the Pirates Pie lol. We have lots of them daft names, it took ages for him to work out why he could find no eggs in After Egg Casserole (chicken lol). His mum thinks I am daft but to my mind it doesnt matter what you call it if it gets the child to try it. When david was little he loved turkey but wouldnt eat chicken at any price, that was until I found the one shop that sold "baby turkeys", from then on we never had any bother and it was years before he realised that he had been eating chicken all along.

Oh, wonderful progress. You need a 'frog' charm near your stitching to keep the rip-its away : ) LOL

Oh I just love your Queen of the Needle! I can't see any mistakes at all!! Are you making this as a wallhanging or a needlecase or perhaps something else? I have this in my UFO's as the needlecase pattern but after seeing yours, you inspire me to get it out sometime soon and work on it!! Your stitching is just really beautiful and we all have the frog at some time or another! Happy Stitching!! Debby :)
