WIPOCALYSE for July and Giveaway

Progress on my Celtic Lady 'Summer' has been good, I like stitching this as the fabric is so soft. Bought from Polstitches, it's 28C Jobelan hand dyed Silver Sage.   I have completed all the beading on the left hand side. So not a lot more to do, wo-hooo a finish is near!
And I have stitched quite a bit on my Rosewood Manor 'Quakers and Quilts,'  it's an easy stitch too.

And this little ornie is 'Heart Tree' by JWB, it was for June but because we were away on holiday only just posted it. Having stitched it at the beginning of the month, I had put it to one side and failed to get it made up till today. It looks a bit small but I have another to do , different design and shall have one hanging from the other.
And with a bit of post holiday blues I had to have a new start and this is it, the first of 14 charts all making up 'Anniversaries of the Heart' by Blackbird Designs.
You can't really see it properly as it is ecru type colour on the hand dyed 32C Belfast, colour Country Mocha from Anita's Little Stitches.
I needed a new start, I really did..... although I have been blog hopping and saw all the lovely crocheting going on so I might do something with my hook this month!!

I haven't done anything on my Chatelaine design, as the frogs saw more of it than I did last month!! LOL
 But I have solved the problem of not seeing the chart clearly.
The original document was on our old computer but my clever DH had saved all saved stuff on his extra memory device.. he found the chart. So there it was, our problem was it was pass word protected and could I remember it???? We spent a morning trying all manner of words, then I had a 'light bulb' moment.. what would Martina, the designer have given me as a pass word? Something I would always know? My name? No! My email addy? YES!!  So enlarged on screen with adobe it is so clear, so next time I stitch it will be from my laptop screen!
I am a happy I might stitch that this month, maybe just a little as I still find it difficult to stitch!
I also am sewing a patchwork quilt for my GD's 18th so happily busy all the time.

Happy stitching all

I had to include these sweet peas, their perfume fills the house.
I grew them for DH, his favourite flower from seeds planted in February.
Happy Days all

Wonderful, wonderful Celtic lady. I do like the little heart tree too.
I've managed 6 sweet peas from the garden so far, everything is very unhappy with all this rain - me included!!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
