I managed to get finished before my holidays. This is the centre of my neighbourhood,
its a stitching shop (couldn't fit needlework on the sign), I feel I should put something in the sky, but I'll wait I think til it comes home in 18months. Tasha is sitting there waiting to greet everyone, tho' I should have added some black on her, but I know its her. The garden is full of flowers, the shop is ALWAYS open. The shop is an adaption of Brightneedles Needlework shop, the tree on the left of the shop is an adaption of a Homespun Elegance tree and fence. The other tree with the swing hnging from it is by DT, the swing was my own thoughts, as I'm still a big kid and love swings (Mum you must have deprived me as a child as we never had a tree that could take a swing in the garden - LOL!!). This time the path is straight and paved in granite as granite never wears out and there should be a lot of walking in and out of the shop LOL!! - Do you want to visit my shop? - I hope so!
Here is a picture of my 2 finished squares, hopefully I have them blended together OK, I'm quite pleased with the result.
I have stitched yesterday the new PS - Spring freebie, though I haven't had time to make it up into an ornament or pin cushion, can't decide yet which to do with it, I will post a picture of it when I get back from my holidays next week. Holiday stitching had me in a quandry, I have finally decided to take 2 pieces with me, and then decide when I get there which to stitch or if I stitch at all, though usually I try and do some, my first choice is by Homespun Elegance - Olde Shaker Tune, the other is by Lori Markovic - Polly Wolly Doodle.
Did I mention I was going on holiday LOL!! - We are going to Lanzarote, the temperature will be around 20 C maybe warmer (hopefully), which is a darn site warmer than the UK will be if the snow arrives. We haven't been to this particular Canary Island before, though some of the lads at work have been with there spouses/partners and have said its really nice, Mark and I will just be chilling.
