What a busy week it has been, stitching, washing, ironing and cleaning. With the laundry having been completed, I had to catch up on two weeks of washing and ironing (well the washing has been, the ironing is a work in progress). All the renovations have put so much dust around the house and it took some time to clean it all away.
I am so pleased with my new laundry, it's so much bigger and brighter, the photos don't do it justice as they were taken on a dark gloomy morning. The painting has not been finished as we are still waiting for the render to dry.
I have finished stitching Lisa's RR and it was a lot of fun. For those who were interested, it's the River Fish Sampler from the magazine Cross Quick Dec/Jan 1989. I stitched the three top most fish.
I have also finished stitching the first section of my Emblem Of Love RR. I have decided to stitch the multicolour version using Gentle Art Sampler Threads, DMC and Olde Willow Stitchery. I have left off the dedication and the date and will fill them in when it's complete. I am not quite sure what I will do with each of these parts yet.
I also completed and posted a small gift for Cathy. Cathy sent me a button to finish my baby sampler a year ago and shame on me, it's taken this long to get a thank you to her. I stitched this little scissor fob over one for her, but what a challenge to finish it. Once I had stitched the little pillow together, I had an interesting time turning it the right way round. I am really pleased how it turned out though.
