WIPocalyse for August

My August show for the WIPocalyse is rather small.
But I have been busy doing other things. This is the first of AotH.. not too good a photo. It didn't take that long but I made a mistake and frogs arrived so that held me up. I have definitely decided that I am not doing all 12 on one piece of fabric, but four rows of not so big.
And this is my July Christmas ornie, not made up, too much to do and so little time and we have been away. Dh's daughters are now BA's so we went to their Degree Ceremonies and had a lovely few days away, first in Bradford and then Lancaster and the sun shone!

I have been busy doing other sewing and my DGD's quilt is nearly finished

Thank you to all of you that wished us a happy anniversary. DH and I are very blessed and love our lives here in Essex, Each day is a happy one! At the moment we have a very, very tidy and clean house as Dh's parents are coming the stay, so we have had a late spring clean! We should have visitors more often as it would push us to put things away when we have finished with them!
Happy Days All and enjoy what ever you're doing.

Great start on AotH - what a wonderful project this is. And very pretty ornament too. Happy stitching!

Hello Chris, just found your blog, and I had to tell you that your ornament is so cute - how do you plan on finishing it? Love the start on AofH. Louise

Isn't there some sort of saying that you can get more cleaning done in the 10 minutes before company arrives than you can in a whole week? lol Enjoy your visitors.

Beautiful stitching, Chris. The BBD Anniversaries are lovely to stitch.
Belated happy anniversary to you and DH.

Beautiful stitching the soft color in AotH

Lovely stitching.
I agree about visitors being good for cleaning/tidying, you certainly get it done a lot faster when you know someone is on the way.
Hope you have a lovely time with your visitors and congratulations to the young ladies on their Degrees..
