Back from the framers

We have had a really hot spell of weather and im actually glad to see some rain today coz its just been too hot! Its been good though, sometimes summers here can be depressing with all the rain but so far so good...

Anyway, look at this...
Caleb's sampler back from the framers! My first framed finish and im really pleased with it. So is Caleb
It was pricey to get it framed but these big finishes are few and far between so i just went with it.

Not much else to report....just been busy out and about in the sun. Took Caleb swimming for the first time last week and he loved it. We were at my cousin's wedding last weekend and i had him in a little shirt and tie, totally adorable.

Started my Mary Wigham piece at last ....update next post

Wimbledon Semis today- so hope Andy Murray gets through! Its been a loooong time since a Brit/Scot reached a Wimbledon Final. Go Murray go!

Wonderful finish, it looks great framed. Caleb does look like he likes it too. Glad he had fun swiming, and I'll bet he was adorable in a little shirt and tie.

Caleb's birth sampler looks gorgeous framed!

Glad you finally got your fabric for Mary Wigham, I can't wait to see your progress. I have a frog in mine, so have some unpicking to do later.

Have a great weekend.
