Stitching Progress

I had hoped to complete this next Shepherds Bush Christmas Stocking before heading back to work tomorrow, but the weather has been so lovely, I have been distracted by the beach and family and a bit of other stitching ....  however good progress has been made and I'm already planning the next one !!

I was surprised to see this orchid blossom this morning in our spare bathroom .... needless to say I don't go in there very often so it was a pleasant surprise !!

I had completed stitching this Sue Hawkins canvas work piece which I have already stitched once before, and it just needed putting together so I have also managed to finish that in the last couple of days ....

And here is a gorgeous photo of Andrea, Elliott and Jonah that they sent today .... we are going to miss all these little grandchildren running around ..... it will be a very quiet week here ..... and so that sees the end of these Christmas/New Year holidays ... it has been lots of fun, but sadly we head back to work tomorrow .....
