It was 36 degrees here yesterday so needless to say after 11am we were hiding indoors! For the first part of the afternoon I was working on some secret stitching - sorry no pics.
It seemed appropriate to spend the rest of my Friday working on the new Jenny of Elefantz 'stitch-along' - the first stitchery design was released yesterday. You will find the free design and more info here
Here is Jenny's design for the first block
So I drew mine up and then thought about colours. First though I changed cookie to biscuit as this is going to be 'My' Vintage kitchen and we rarely have cookies. More 'British' too. Also I thought that the design of the jar would lend itself beautifully to the blue and white colourway of cornishware - an English classic.
You would have thought that at my time of life I would have learnt to spell biscuit correctly! And I went on to make a right hash of the drawing - thank goodness for Frixion pens!
Anyway, this is how far I got with my stitching last night and I should be able to finish it off today.
We said goodbye to Dad Last Monday.
Their Golden Wedding
With his great grandchildren last year
It would have been Mum and Dad's 69th wedding anniversary on the day of the funeral.
RIP Dad. xx
