At last I've finished page 3!

Well it's taken a little longer than I would hvae liked, but page 3 is finally finished!  Page 4 doesn't arrive until July, so will be prepping for my new design Think Pink and continuing the birth sampler for my colleague.

I also finished the Breast Cancer card for my friend:

I gave it to her the week before her operation and she was so emotional when she received it in a good way.  The caption reads 'An angel to watch over you.  I know it's given her comfort, but I've since found out that the cancer has spread and she needs rodiotherepy and chemotherapy.  Please can everyone say a little prayer for Christine?  She's a special person and although I've worked with her for a while I've only got to know her well over the past few months.  It sort of puts my MS into perspective.  xxx

Page 3 has arrived!

Just a quick post to let you know that page 3 has arrived in my inbox, so Baby Friends put down and all needles on deck to finish page 3 of Curl Up!  I'll have then done over a half - next post will be to say I've done it! :)

My WIP progress

Well I've been stitching a few designs recently.  I started and nearly finished the little angel card for my friend, but waiting for the last 2 threads to arrive to finish it off.

I've done quite a bit more of Samantha, but it's the background and it's quite subtle as it's only one thread over 2 (28 count):

I've also started Baby Friends for my colleague - I'd forgotten how much prep there was when getting a kit!  It took ages to sort the threads, cut them to the right lengths etc!  But done a fair bit already despite DH putting in a few stitches when i wasn't looking (he's never stitched before!)

Well I'm waiting for page 3 to land in my inbox - hopefully it arrives later today!

Happy Stitching everyone!
