Solar system revisited

It's the third Friday of the month so that means it is IHSW again - I'm joining in this month as I have a nice relaxing weekend ahead of me with plenty of potential stitching time just interrupted by a 9 mile walk round Ayr in the middle of Sat night.. definitely having a lie-in on Sunday after that.  I'm planning to work on Bent Creek June Zooms - here's my start

 Now the exciting bit of last week for me was receiving my Solar System piece back in the post .. I had commissioned the delightful Mouse to finish it up into a pillow for my ds Joe and she duly obliged and here is the end result and I couldn't be happier - it looks fab
 and here is Joe testing it out

Thanks for stopping by, always appreciate it. 


  1. can't wait to see your progress and so glad DS approves of the pillow :)love mouse xxxxx

  2. Mouse is awesome like that. Glad you and your ds both approve of it. You did a great job with it. And grats on the new start. I love to start something new. That may be why I have so many projects on the go, lol.

  3. The solar system pillow is fabulous! Great new start too

  4. Love the slar system pillow.
    Why are you going for a middle of the night walk?

  5. Was walking a midnight walk as a charity event for our local hospice - suffice to say I now have a couple of sore legs...

  6. Lovely! Kudos to Mouse on the finishing! DS looks thrilled! Can't wait to see more on your start! Thanks for sharing!

  8. What a great mum you are to spend all that time stitching for a pillow slip!!! It does look fab tho, and I am sure DS mates will be very, VERY jealous.
    Hope you enjoyed IHSW and were able to impress your fellow charity walkers by pointing out and naming the entire solar system :)
