Anne's stitching

This is my friend Anne West and the picture below is a piece that she has just finished. We had the privilege of watching it grow at our regular Friday stitching group.
This is my progress on my great nephew's Christmas stocking. I am pretty pleased with myself for doing the backstitching as I go along. There is a lot of it!!
And I would like to thank you all once again for the tremendous support you gave to Brighton by voting last week. We are all elated with the positive result and $25,000 boost to the Fund!
Also, on August 21, I will be hosting my annual Stitching Day here at 190 Smith Street. I think it is the 10th year for it!!
All stitchers and stitcher wannabes are welcome...potluck starting at noon. Bring your finished projects to show off and something to stitch on and prepare to be impressed by all the fabulous things our fellow stitchers produce!

Those wolves are amazing!
Your stocking is really coming along. Good for you to do the BS first. I still haven't learned that lesson!
Once again I'm unable to make your SAL. I will be headed to Windsor for my Mom's 80th birthday. I'll be thinking of all of you. Have fun!

Anne's work is beautiful. I would love to come for your stitching day . I really enjoyed my self the year I came up there. However I will be hosting my husband's 60th birthday celebration that day and going to my nephew's graduation party the next. I hope all of you have a great time. Perhaps I will be able to make it next year. I will look forward to it.

Hello dear Ann,

What a lovely stocking you are making, the receiver is a very lucku person :)
Thank you so much for your postcard, it arrived late I guess ... the neighbour brought it to me because the postman had put it in the wrong box and that was some days ago. But how sweet of you to think of me during your holiday! Really sweet. You'll see the card on my blog soon.

Big hugs & please visit my blog, maybe you like my giveaway?
