Send up the bat signal!

I finished my rotation slot on Forget Me Nots in Stitches Anniversary Roses at the weekend, I'm a little bit further on with the large flower.

I realised that I only have two more bands to go once I finish this one.  It's been a while since I unrolled the full sampler for a sampler, so here it is.

My next project is Just Nan's Mermaid Heart Whimzi,  I'm almost done now, just a bit more back stitch and the beads.  I should have a finish very soon.

My big project for last week however was to make Rosie a costume for 'Super Hero' day at school. After some discussion it was decided she would go as Batwoman.  Fortunately there are some good blog tutorials for making a bat cloak and I had a suitable piece of black cloth in my fabric stash.  So one bat clock and a felt mask and bat for her leotard she was good to go.

Your bat girl looks so cute! I remember stitching a Power Rangers outfit for my son. Rosie must've had a lot of fun in that costume.

Anniversary Roses is looking so pretty!
