Progress pics at last

My cut thro Beach Hut is coming along nicely although I only did a few stitches over the Christmas period I was just so busy being a mum!
But I do love it and have also bought cut through Caravan so I must finish it. With this in mind, I plan to keep stitching this till it is completed.

 And this is my Fairies at the Bottom of Our Garden. I did stitch quite  a bit of this and its beginning to look like the picture at last!
My photography isn't good and I have realised this morning I don't really know the full potential of my camera which I have had for several years. I think I need to dig out the booklet that came with it to see how to take close ups.

And in the quiet moments of Christmas when we just sitting in the evenings with my two step daughters I knitted a pair of socks! My DH has worn them already, in fact this week he told me he is having a knitted sock week! I think I have knitted him 5 pairs so I best get on and do two more pairs so he can have one pair for each day of the week!
And this blob is my shawl that I have struggled to make!
The online tutor assures me it will look wow once it has been blocked so all fingers crossed!
This was a lot harder than I anticipated and it one section was undone several times so on that basis I am going to wear it every day and every where!! Perhaps I'll take it off to shower! LOL

It's always a treat to see your stitchery! I love the colours in the shawl so you must get a photo of you wearing it once it's finished. Love the fairies and the beach hut looks extremely intricate!

Wonderful progress on all your projects Chris. Happy to hear that you bought another cut thru. They are so much fun to stitch.

Beautiful! As for the camera - I am with you on that: ever since my DH gave me a new digital camera, I can't figure out how it works. The flash seems to come on when it feels like it, and not when I want it to. :(

Great stitching, Chris! I added your Beach Hut pic to the SAL page.
