I'm going to be sounding like a broken record for another couple of weeks until the end of the month while I keep going with the pre-stitching for 'Along the James River'.  I'm starting to get twitchy about getting back to some of my other wips so I'm having a lot of fun by mentally setting up new rotations.

Meanwhile here is my most recent progress on 'Along the James River' I'm almost finished with the outside cover.  Just to finish the spine and to stitch the river.

 Progress also continues on Rosie's jumper,  I'm almost at the armhole shaping on the back.

Also this week I got a lovely parcel in the post,  I won Bekca's blogiversary giveway and she really spoiled me!

The beautiful pinkeep is now in pride of place on my summer display and I love the cute squirrel pincushion.  As you might imagine Rosie and Christopher made short work of the chocolate bunnies!

As I've not had time this week to go through the holiday photo's, I shall leave you with a couple from last weekend.  It was Open Farm Sunday so we went to visit our local organic farm in nearby Swillington.  The children had a fantastic time, Christopher in particular is very taken with the chickens and thoroughly enjoyed the chance to collect eggs and stroke a chick.
