Another HD!

Here is my second 2007 HD, Sitting Pretty by Heritage Stitchcraft:


I started this in January and the reason it has taken me an age to stitch is that I've been stitching it only during my lunchbreaks, when I have time, at work! I love the fabric - it's Castle View by Silkweaver on 32ct Jazlyn, so it's very soft too. I've nearly finished page 5 of Snow Princess, so I should be sharing that HD with you in the next few days.
I'm off from work for 2 whole weeks, as it is Wimbledon fortnight once more. Come on Tim! I'm not sure who I'll be supporting this year as Agassi retired last year and Andy Murray has withdrawn due to his wrist injury. Guess it'll be Henman once more! I'll be getting a fair amount of stitching time in too during these two weeks. I'm hoping to catch up with everyone's blogs and also the BBs, which I just haven't had time to browse recently. So I'm off now to have a trawl around the websites.....

Enjoy your two weeks off!

Heather said...

Love your finish Sam. Enjoy your two weeks off, will Henman pass the first round?

Shame about Andy Murray, but his health comes first and there's always next year.

It's very cute Sam, congratulations

I'm going to be enjoying Wimbledon as well, I reckon Jamie Murry in the doubles is Britain's best bet this year

Carol said...

Congratulations Sam!! What a pretty finish!!! I bet it feels wonderful now to have it finished.

Nicola said...

Aww, how cute is your finish!! Congratulations!

Enjoy Wimbledon fortnight, I have a feeling that the weather will be stopping play a lot this week, so enjoy the extra stitching time you'll get in!

Hey there Sam :)

Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment - I don't feel so much of a wuss now you've said that about the fabric :)

I notice you're on the UK Stitchers forum. Forgive me for my complete ignorance, as I'm still getting to know names - you could have even been at the recent GTG for all I know - but what's your pseudonym on the board? I love this one - Kitty was beginning to stitch this at the GTG and I never really noticed how lovely the thread colours were until seeing it 'in the flesh' - I may have to add it to my 'To Do' list now! Thanks for sharing :)
