J for Jasmin

Thank you for all the good wishes for our meal. It was here and it was as always a beautiful meal. I had a Goats Cheese tartlet for starters, Lemon Sole for main andfor dessert a Baileys & Cappacino Creme Brulee mmmmmmmmmm. After the meal the family all headed home but the friends came back to our house for coffee and a peaceful chat and it was almost 3 am before they left.

On the stitching front there was none done yesterday but today has been rather a lazy day so I have had some time to stitch. I finished J for Jasmine, though there is still a little bee and a bird to be added close by.
I have also made a start on the challenge as I have a plan 0-) I think. Tomorrow I had hoped to start the next project on my rota but as I have not touched ISD and I really want to do at least a little on that every week then that is my plan for tomorrow.
Rachael & Karen (Little Cat) the link above will help.
Andrea, welcome back hope you had a good holiday.
To everyone else, as always thank for all the lovely comments.

xx
may your frogs stay in their pond.

I'm planning a HAED over one. But not until I finish one of my wip's.
I had a look at you March post and it looks like you did a bit more good for you. I guess they don't get done over night.
I haven't. decided which one for sure yet

Hi Helen,

The garden alphabet is just beautiful! And it must be fun to stitch the little critters around the letters. :-)

Sounds like you had a wonderful Birthday dinner out. I just had lunch but your description of the food is making me hungry! LOL

I'm also laughing at your title, "My Drop in the Ocean"! By next year you'll be amazed at how much progress you'll make on this piece, that is if you haven't finished it by then! :-)
