Theme-a-licious Check In - Jubilee July

Here is my progress on the first couple of my rotation projects

First up was Hillside Samplings 'A Stitch In Pine'  This project had moved on a lot since I last shared a photo as I'd kept it out upstairs and put a few stitches in when I had a couple of minutes.  This time I picked it up I finished the last tree, the four sided stitch and the alphabet.

Then I picked Juda Hale in Minature back up and I have finally finished the (over one on 35 count) eyelet alphabet!  I'm so glad to have it done as it was a major PITA to stitch. I left the needle in the photo to give you an idea of the scale of this project.

I will leave you with a snap of my cornflowers, I was very glad to see that I'm not the only one enjoying them!

Awwww, Happy Birthday to your sweet boy! What a cutie-pie!

The Stitch in Pine looks lovely. You're a brave woman to stitch that sampler over one on 35 ct!

Enjoy your cornflowers - I love them too.

Happy Birthday to Christopher (can't believe he's 3 already...). Your stitching and knitting are always wonderful - the pine tree sampler is such a pretty design.

You have made wonderful progress on everything!
Congrats on your miniature! Nice to have it finished. I know what you mean by PITA! It was downright painful at times whrn I was working on My Beloved!

I just can't believe Christopher is 3 already - soooo cute with his blond locks. Your Juda Hale is just wonderful - OMGosh - I admire you for tackling that one. The Pines is one I have not seen - really liked it too. Miss Rosie's jumper is looking great too. Glad you have time for knitting. Have a great weekend Mel

Lovely stitching and knitting Karoline, I don't know how you do the over one - I just dislike doing it so much. Best Wishes to the bonnie birthday boy.
