Summer time

It is now apparently summer, we've had a few nice days but as usual now that the kid's have broken up for the summer holidays the temperature has plummeted lol!

We spent a great weekend down in Bath this month catching up with family and friends to celebrate DH Lee's 50th birthday. While I was there I gave my friend's mum her present of Owl by LoveThyThread. Frustratingly I forgot to take a picture of it in it's frame but here it is when it was finished - I ordered a frame online to fit to exact size with a mount and managed to frame it well myself, was really pleased with it and this is a much more economical way as having them professionally framed it just too expensive.  Maybe I will actually get round to framing some of my other finishes now...

Now that Owl if finished I have made a start on a project I am wanting to finish for my hols in September (a week in Tenerife - can't wait!) - planning to make it up into a tote bag to carry all my beach essentials.  Can anyone work out what it is going to be?

I have also resurrected one of my HAEDS,(Mini Sea of Roses) I haven't worked on any of these for months and I forgot how small it is, stitching 2 over 1 on 28ct. Took my a wee bit to get back into it but now back up to speed, albeit a very slow speed... this is where I am at just now.

Better get off now to have a shower as they are due to be ripping out my bathroom this morning so will be bathroomless for a few days but this time next week should have a shiny new bathroom - so excited, my poor wee bathroom complete with hole in the bath lol was in desperate need of a makeover.
