Although I haven't managed to put a single stitch into TG in the past few weeks, here is an updated photo of him. I hate doing the backstitch on the arch at the top, but there is not much more of that to go and I just adore this design.....

Here are two blocks from Shepherds Bush 'Wandering Vine'. They are the very beginnings of an etui that Carol and I are stitching and making together (one each). Watch this space for further developments!

Thank you all for visiting, I hope you like the photos - remember that they are all clickable if you want to see a larger version. Talk to you soon. love, Jackie x

Here is the little pillow that I stitched for Carol as we decided to have a little stitching exchange for Spring. I chose a freebie design from Catherine in France. There are little 'over one' stitches for the water coming out of the can - I only used part of the design, but it is very pretty. I also bought a few bits for Carol, but I forgot to take photos of them, sorry!

Just LOOK at all the lovely goodies Carol brought for us when she came to visit on Sunday - aren't they wonderful? :-)

I hope that you had an enjoyable Easter weekend and that those of you who, like me, like to stitch found some time to do so! Here are photos of this years Easter/Spring tree, using branches from the apple tree in my garden and the decorations on my little mantlepiece - I hope you emjoy them..............
