It arrived in its own little box as you can see! I shared it with my Dad when I went to see him yesterday. I loved the glittery icing!! Whilst I'm on the subject of work..... I have some good news to share. I have had a promotion, albeit a temporary one. The HR Manager at our Horsham branch has gone onto adoption leave for a year and I am going to be covering there for 2 days a week as a 'Relief HR Manager'! I will still be doing 3 days in my current branch in my existing role, so I'm sure it's going to be quite an exciting time. I was handed over to last week and it's my first day in Horsham on Monday, so I'm getting a little nervous now. Keep everything crossed for me please!!
Last but not least, a little more progress on The Guardian:
I'm working on the trees behind his head at the moment. It's all half stitch, some with 5 strands of thread which feels a little strange to stitch with. Thanks for everyones lovely comments on my progress updates so far - it seems like you love this project! Happy stitching everyone :o)
