So I managed a little more stitching in June but this is partly due to the fact that I have had some minor surgery to my feet so have been forced to sit and sew....Oh Dear! that's a shame!!!...

And I am happy to report that I have managed two more finishes...

The Spirit Of Christmas

Just a few stitches added to this one...

And finally a few stitches added to...


Seashell Treasures

So not a bad month for me....I just need to keep up the momentum...

Question of the month - Tell us what you think the ideal stitching retreat would include?

Well I'm not sure about this as I have never been on a stitching retreat but I imagine it would have to be somewhere with lots of natural light and comfortable chairs. Somewhere to plug in my light and magnifying lamp....the eyes are not what they were.....Plenty of money for more stitching stash, good company and delicious food and drink....I think that would be a start anyway....

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your evening...

This is for a friend of mine who loves her feline friends....

A birthday present I think once it has been framed.

So now I need to see what everyone else has been working on for Gifted Gorgeousness.
