Stitching
I went back to working on Tend Thy Sheep by Merry Cox this week, this class has been my rotation focus piece recently so I've been working on it every other week. I finished the box band a few weeks ago, here is a picture as I hadn't got round to sharing it yet.

This week I was finishing off the needle book from the set, I just have to complete the pincushion and this set will be ready for finishing.

Sewing
I've made another pump bag for Christopher. He's just started going to nursery on a Friday morning now (Mummy's sanity saver!) and needs a bag for his change of clothes.

The stitching and knitting are looking well Karoline...the print on the dress looks a bit like a Clothkits one...very nice I hasten to add!
