Progress at last

 
I have stitched the second one of the Anniversaries of the Heart by BlackBird designs. I have decided to do these in 'fours' rather than one big piece with all of them on.
The first four are going to be my own children using the months they were born. So these two are my sons born in January and February. 

And I have stitched a little of LHN natures beauty. I am stitching this in a SAL with stitching sisters in Needlecraft Haven on Wednesday evenings.. so I will be happily stitching this evening.

 
Here's the progress on this design by Sudberry. It is a Welcome sampler with a cat. I love this..

So I feel I have done really well in November because as well as my stitching I have made my hall and landing curtains which I found more difficult than I remember when I was younger... but they are up and look fantastic, which I would expect as it is Laura Ashley material.....

The colour is a little more acqua than the photo shows, but they match the paint and wall paper.. Laura Ashley of course! I think I have been furnishing my homes with Laura Ashley colours for years!

Happy stitching all

Love your AoH, they will look fantastic. Would love to stitch these, but my stash budget won't allow. Great progress on you other WIPs. Your curtains look great, love Laura Ashley clothes and home decor.
