Anemone

I probably didn't get as much sewing done as I planned, but I was a good girl and got some cleaning done. Half the house is ready for visitors. By lunch time I thought, as it was bank holiday, I ought to sit down and do some stitching. The anemone card was completed and put together, so I have something to show for the day. I also got a few inches done on the back of J's jumper. It is slow going as I am now knitting adult sizes for him.

I also repaired a few picture frames so there are some pictures to go up on the walls. One was J's birth sampler. D didn't think I had done one for him, but I am sure I stitched it. Just need to find it and frame or finish it in some way for him to display it.

I am expecting a delivery today, but if it comes in time, I am hoping to go into town and get some fabric for my next project. Let's hope the postie is kind, and comes early.

oh I am drooling here. Your card is just gorgeous. Sorry I haven't visited your blog for awhile. I have been slack with blogging in general. Real life gets in the way sometimes but it is good to be back in blogland.
