A Finish

Thank you everyone for your well wishes for our wedding anniversary yesterday, it was wonderful to know you were thinking of us, we really appreciate it. Because we already had another party on yesterday, my cousin Odette's little boy's first birthday party, we celebrated on Sunday evening with our family by having a lovely dinner.

Many thanks also for the comments about the book cases too - I'm really happy with them and I know I'm very lucky to have a very clever DH :)

Gosh, its been awhile - here's my first large finish in quite some time.


Jillian's Stocking by Shepherds Bush
stitched on 18 ct Floba using Crescent Colour, Weeks and DMC pearl 5's


Just need to sew the charms on now which I'll do later tonight.

have a happy day :)

I'm so sorry I missed wishing you congrats on the day. But I'm sending belated wishes for your anniversary, and hoping you have many more happy memories ahead of you both.

I'm LOVING that bookcase! My husband isn't really that way inclined so I'm a bit envious. It's just fab!

Belated congratulations on your anniversary. I'm so far behind on blogging that I'm sorry to have missed wishing you it earlier. Also, the bookcases are wonderful. They look great and must have been such fun to put all your books and goodies into. What a talented DH you have.
