Later last year I showed you where I was up to with Shepherd's Bush Autumn's Blessings. I was trying to decide whether to continue with the same colour thread for the wording, since it looked different to what the picture showed that came with the kit. So enough umming and aarhing over it. Since it's Autumn here I thought what better time of the year to try to complete it. I'm sticking with the Dried Pink Roses and not worrying about what looks different to what.
This is where I left it...
SHEPHERD'S BUSH Autumn's Blessings - 1 April 2007
And this is what I added last night...
Autumn's Blessings - 22 March 2009
As you can see a couple of years has elapsed since I started this one. How shameful because it's such a lovely design. I also have the gorgeous Jill Rensel mats for it, so will eventually have it framed.
I haven't posted in the last few days because I've been busy. I have a wooden deck out the back of my house (average in size) and it was in need of re-staining. So I washed it down one day, then took a day and a bit to re-stain it all. I was so exhausted after each day. Too tired to do any stitching which was a pity. Hence the quietness on my blog. I've still been checking what you all have been stitching and have altered my header to freshen it up. Can I also say a big thanks for all of your responses on my last finish, The Potting Shed. I'm overwhelmed by the numbers. I'm so pleased you enjoyed my journey with it. :)
