Here comes the bride...

Happily I can report this week has been a good week stitching wise, stresses at work made me just want to come home plonk my bottom down and stitch the evenings away!

Here is what the wedding sampler looked like the last time you saw it...

Before
Here it is now! The bride has arrived (or her dress at least!)

Progress 04/08/2013
I'm feeling happy about this now, and feeling pretty confident I will get it finished in plenty of time.

In other news I took part in an event on one of the facebook groups, I was kindly rak'd a giftcard for Love Thy Thread and after much umming and ahhing decided on Warrior Red.

Warrior Red

I think its beautiful, I have no idea when I will get round to actually stitching it, but nevermind! I also picked up this book this week...



It has some gorgeous nautical/seaside designs, again its just a case of finding time to stitch them!

Hope you have all had a great weekend and a good week ahead!

  2. Super progress on your wedding sampler - keep going and I'm sure you'll have it finished very soon. You'll then have time to start Warrior Red as a reward.
