Stitching done and stitching to do!

The fob I did for Lindsay in Exchange Heaven has arrived so I can now post pics..
I saw on her blog that she loved sunflowers so a sunflower it was!


And on the back a couple of bees!



And I have been busy with one of my WIPs that I am doing for Gaynors SAL I am pleased to say that I completed all the back stitching on the green cat and on the one I did last week.. so I am moving along slowly.Its not that I don't like this but since I bought it close on three years ago my tastes have changed and it hasn't had the same appeal, however I am enjoying stitching it as doing it in a SAL makes it a must although today thursday is the day I usually stitch this and I am desperate to get an exchange finished for the year round Prairie Schooler exchange so I might just get that done and finished this evening. But if I do that I will be behind with my Beatrice SAL.... arghhhh there aren't enough hours in my days!!!



And this is what I would really like to get started on I have said two months in a row that I will and as yet I haven't.. I think I need to buy some 28c linen for it, so off to surf!

Hi Chris..I had a little smile at the comment on your blog.
NFN means normal for Norfolk: a saying that if you are from Norfolk you are inbred...completely untrue..too many RAF bases and Army bases for any basis in the saying lol
