Continuing on with my tradition of being late for posting.... here I am late again for my GG post! :o0
Friday Frolic & GG Entry:
This month I have a finished gift to show you.... this was one of my DUCSJC2016 and Cross Stitch Crazy January starts. When I left it on January 7 it looked like this....
... and now after stitching on it last Friday night for Friday Frolics and IHSW it is finished... and framed!

So where does the gift part come into my latest finish? Well, I will be sending this one to my Mum for Mother's Day... (hopefully she doesn't read my blog before next Sunday...)
So that was my Friday Frolic stitching... now onto the rest of weekend's stitching...
On Saturday I decided that it was high time to start another of the Snowflower Diaries "Joyful World SAL" pieces as I am woefully behind in stitching these cute designs. Also, I thought that I could use "February" as part of my Stitch Maynia "April Showers Bring May Flowers" SAL entry. (My stitching for Mum is also an entry for that SAL)

So overall I had quite a successful IHSW!
I do have another WIP to show you... this one is a 2015 WIP that I started as part of last year's crazy January challenges. When I last showed this one on my blog back on 1 February 2015 it looked like this:
It now looks like this:

The rest of the week just gone I have been stitching on my JCS Christmas Ornie... fingers crossed that will be finished over the weekend. Sorry forgot to take a progress pic last night...
So that is it for my latest stitching round up.... Before I go, I would like to thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post. I really appreciate your kind thoughts and wishes :o) I am feeling a lot better this week so hopefully that is a good sign that things are settling down again!
This weekend we have a long weekend here in Australia for Anzac Day so I will be resting, stitching and catching up with Floss Tube, or the many episodes of the Good Wife, Silent Witness and whatever else I have taped on Foxtel! So a big weekend ahead...
Til next time, happy stitching
PS: if you have noticed all the purple on this post... besides it being my favourite colour... this is my tribute to Prince who passed away overnight ;o( 2016 is turning out to be a very sad year..... ;o(
