I Made The Connection

Here I am again and it hardly seems two minutes since last week (ok im a couple of days late too).  My days seem to fly by and I am not always sure when I climb into bed at night just exactly what I have done to use up all the time.  That said, apart from the last couple of hours before bedtime, when I sit down to relax, watch tv and stitch, I am always busy doing something. 

I was disappointed with the Minecraft cake, so much so that I didnt even bother taking a picture.  Oscar however was thrilled with it and his friends thought it was cool.  Not one of my best but obviously not a complete failure lol.

Not a lot of stitching time last week, which is why I am late posting.  I was determined that I was going to stick with fairies until I connected the border round it.  This is now done, it still need backstitching and some other bits and bobs but I am pleased I managed to make the connection. 

So here is my latest offering for Fairies At The Bottom Of My Garden -

now that the border is round it I am beginning to feel like I am getting somewhere and the end is within the bounds of possibility.
I had a new visitor last week and went to check out her blog, she had some beautiful hardanger and sampler work and I am so tempted to start something new.  However as I only stitch on one piece each week I really mustn't start something else or it will just delay my finishing those pieces.  I have been scanning through blogs when I have had the time but I really must apologise for not leaving any comments this last week - so many things to do and just not enough time.

Thank you so much to those who visit and take the time to read my ramblings.  God bless you all.


May your frogs stay in their ponds.

It's always a relief when a border matches up.
Happy stitching and blog reading!

I know what you mean when you say that time just flies by. When I'm on vacation it's the same - the day just doesn't have enough hours. When I'm at work, it's just the opposite, lol.
Nice progress on this beautiful project.
