Wilbur Progress

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums!  

Not much stitching time this week, but I've finished the background on Wilbur:

I only have the border to finish before the whole tapestry is done...but it will have to wait until the next time he's drawn out of the box!  The next piece I'm working on is 'One Nation' by ByGone Stitches.

Rachel comes home for the Easter break on Thursday, and then Steven will be home a week on Tuesday...It's his 20th birthday the day after that, so we'll be going out to celebrate at some point.  School breaks for the Easter holidays on Friday this week for 2 weeks - we return the day after Easter Monday - so lots of stitching time!

I bought some more jewellery findings and beads this weekend, so I can have a go at making some different types of jewellery.  I've also been to a craft evening for Guiding leaders, and was introduced to something called 'Fantasy Film', which is a liquid resin you can use to make different things with.  You use wire to shape an item, such as butterfly wings or flower petals, and you dip it into the resin.  Leave to 'set' for a couple of minutes, and then put pieces together to make the item.  I'm going to have to get some of that!

Happy Stitching!
