Eight down and seven to gooooooo :)

Hi Every one :)
Yep you've guessed  it...... I've finished another of those  crazys :) 
Rose cottage by LHN .... finished it about an hour ish ago but had to go and get DD1 from work and get something to eat before I could show you :)


This one was another that I couldn't put down ... the others are calling me to get some stitches in but I just couldn't tear myself away from it heheheh.... except earlier on, as its our UFO day over on Friendly stitchers  I stitched on my long standing  biscornu "Amazing Grace " from Polstitchers and finished all the stitching on the front of the piece :)  which I will show you as well :)

The fabric behind Rose Cottage is what I am going to use to make it into a cushion :) I bought the fabric ages ago before I had even bought the pattern etc and knew it would come in useful one day heheheheh ;) I am stitching the biscornu on a piece of silkweavers  fabric and it is lovely to work on as well :)

Amazing grace design by Polstitches 
SOOOOOO I have only seven more to stitch and its  only in April :) think I may just make the deadline for next year ??? heheheh 




On a funny note I came home today to find Mr & Mrs Quackers in my garden and I actually was able to get to my camera and take some photos  wooo hooo so I shall show you these now :) I even threw them some oatalisious bread down, but they weren't bothered ... I think that that had come to check out the new waterfall that DH has now got up and running ..... which sounds lovely from my stitching chair in my room :)
Right, it is getting late and I need another cuppa  before I go to snooze as I have come down with a sore throat and  funny nose .. think the hay fever has kicked in earlier this year :( 
so I shall leave you tonight and catch up with you all again soon :)
take care and happy stitching 
love mouse xxxx

Yay! More finishes! I'm on my last 7, too! I'm thinking that I'll finish all but one of mine. According to my calculations, that one should take me 33 weeks of solid stitching... and there are only 37 weeks left this year. :-) I think I'll give myself an extra year on that one!

Huh trust them to wait until I had left before they showed up eh? Ah well got loads in my own back yard I suppose ... :) Love Rose Cottage - you'd not got much left to do on it when I was there so I'll let you off with that one. Biscornu is lovely ... when you going to do the other side then? Running off rather quickly ...... Hugs, Ally xxx
