Home Again

Well doesn't time fly when you are enjoying yourself. It seems no time at all since I was saying that I was off on holiday and here I am back again. We had a lovely time but it just went too too fast.

Yesterday was Monday SAL with Sally, who has been very very good and not stitched on Queen of the Needle while I have been away so we should both be at about the same point still. I seemed to do an awful lot last night but disappointingly I just didn't manage to finish the whole of the section. There are some strawberry "satin stitch" flowers and a couple of "one over one" ladybugs still to do. I wonder if Sally managed to complete her section. Oops just remembered I still have the two butterflies to do that I forgot last time - oh well less rambling and let you have a picture to look at instead.
I am back to the beginning of my rota now and will be starting with a restart of HAED Such Is The Way of Fairies. Don't know how much I will get done on this as it really is not my choice of stitching but it is one of a pair that my daughter wanted and in a very foolish mood I volunteered to stitch one of them for her. Oh the things we mothers do!!!!
Thank you for all the wonderful comments about Friends are Treasures and thank you for the awards a couple of you have left me. I will have to go back and have a closer look at them and find out what I need to do.

Happy to see you safely back home Helen and glad you had a lovely holiday. Take care friend. Nice progress that you are making on Queen of the Needle.

Sally said...

Welcome back Helen. I didn't quite get the band finished either. I did get the satin stitches done but not the over one ladybugs. Oh and I didn't stitch the row you've done underneath either! Lol!
