Mirabilia English Roses & a few Happy Dances!

I took a few photos/scans today, so I thought I'd update my blog in the wee hours of the morning. As it's late, please do ignore any spelling mistakes.... or any more than usual anyway ;-P

I finished The Birth Band by the Drawn Thread for my cousin's new baby, Serena:

I also finished Baby Garden by Just Nan for my friend's new baby Abbie Rose:

And to go with that one, a photo of Abbie Rose and one with her proud big brother Thomas Luke... I don't think he's figured out what to do with her yet mind you!

Those two are both in being framed... they should be back from the framers on Tuesday. I had lots of fun stitching both!

I also had a new start last week - English Roses by Mirabilia.

It's a bad photo, but it shows my progress at least! Sans beads (I'll do those at the end - and it looks like there's quite a few!) I had to have a go at the Spider Rose with the silk ribbon (at the top) as I've never done one of those before... Glad to say it was easy, so I can get on with the rest now without panicking too much about the other 25 odd! ;-) This one will be a gift for my mum's birthday in December.

And I think that's me up-to-date now with stitching news.

They are all beautful. I hadn't seen the one by Just Nan before, love the colors as well as the cute litle cats and squirrels in it.
