First finish of 2006


Well as I have taken an extra day as leave, as the stomach still doesn't feel too good, I have stitched away at this Shepherds Bush freebie called Be Happy. Its stitched on 10ct Heatherfield using Crescent colours (I do like the names of the hand-dyed threads, they are much nicer than numbers), it was very quick to stitch up, especially being on such a low count fabric. The fabric in the picture is what I intend to make the pillow out of, my finishing is often slower than my stitching and I tend to do a few at the same time, so I'll make it up later this month into the pillow.

Well I think after I have finished taking down the decorations today I will go back to my neighbourhood house, and see how much of that I get finished, maybe it'll be done by the weekend. Will post pictures later this week as to my progress.

Feel better soon! I love your BEE Happy. It's so cheerful. I bet it was the best pick-me-up while you were "under the weather". Looking forward to a picture of your pillow.
