Getting back to my routine

Life is calming down again after half-term and we are all getting back to our routine especially after last week when we had an important birthday as Rosie turned 6! As a result I'm hoping to get back to updating here more regularly.

Last time I did a stitching update I mentioned that I had finished my rotation slot on The Drawn Thread's Spot of Winter, I have now got round to taking an updated photo.

I have also finished my slot on the CA Wells Whitework Sewing Companion, but as all I've done so far is to outline the main piece with four-sided stitch it wouldn't make for a very interesting photo yet.
So now I'm back to Anniversary Roses which is coming along nicely, I'm about three quaters of the way through now.

I also had some time for finishing at the weekend so Barrick Samplers Five birds has been finished into a pillow.

So nice to see your stitching progress. Anniversaries is a great piece and wow, what a lovely little pillow you made with the Five Birds. I totally forgot about this chart, I have to pull it out and stitch it in the near future for my monthly bird stitching goal.

Happy belated birthday to your little girl - well, at age 6 she's your big little girl :)

Love your Spot of Winter, Caroline--that series has always caught my eye and I really should sit down and stitch all of them soon :)
