As is traditional to start the English Summer, it will be cold and rainy. We had a thunderstorm last night. The Small Boy and I did manage to visit The Plant Man and buy some fuchsias and bedding plants though.
And I did some stitching while watching Floss Tube (or Flaaaaaas Tube as the Large Boy calls it. When he's not saying "Nifty Needle Nannies" a la Katie the Stash Queen!). I am continuing with Little Snap Dragon, right down to the bottom of his tail. Thankfully this area has much less confetti so progress is quicker. All of the tail stitched is just one colour so far:
And here is the whole piece with a tape measure for size. I am not sure if you can see those numbers but that is roughly 12 inches or 30 cm from the metal tip to the red number near the tail.
Lots of progress on Just Nan's My Fair Ladybird too:
You can see that Snapdragon is way out in front this month but Snowy Cottage had 14 days from last month. Once again, there are more than 31 days because some days I stitched on two designs.
Finally, after last month's blow out I wasn't intending to buy anything this month. Until Brooke Nolan announced a special May Day Sale, everything in her Etsy store half price. These two fell into my cart! Hubby's niece is getting married later this year and loves sugar skulls so these two will be perfect for her.
