QS Snowflake, St Georges etc :)


This is my progress over the last couple of days since I picked her up again :) I almost have a nose and mouth!



My progress before this current bout of stitching on her :)

I will be working on her for a few more days (when I can!) for the HAED BB Fairy Day SAL. She will also be accompanying me on our summer holiday along with Verdure and St Georges :)

Monday morning we head off on our around the world in 30 days trip - lol! First stop is London, then New York, Los Angeles, Sydney (I'm going to visit Karen!), Adelaide, Perth, Hong Kong and then finally back here!! Phew! I am glad that we will have another month to recuperate before the children start back at school in September! Tikki is being entrusted to some friends who will look after her while we are away. I will miss her but she will be well looked after and a month won't take long to pass!! Not with all that we will be doing anyway!

I will have my camera and laptop with me so as and when I get access (and time!) to a decent internet connection I will post updates.

Before I head off to put a few more stitches into Snowflake, here is the progress pic of St Georges I tried to upload in my last post ...



The edge is straight - I just took a wonky photo :)

If only I had known you'd be in London, I'd have worked out a way to get there to meet up with you for a couple of hours.

Have a safe trip and catch up with you soon.

Enjoy your vacation, it sounds like you're going to have a wonderful time.

I'm enjoying watching your progress on St. Georges - that silk is such a scrummy colour!

Have a safe and enjoyable trip :)
