Well, this is what I have been up to this past week...
On the left is Nathan's Diatoms cross stitch. I've done a fair bit to that this week, although I'd be guessing it's difficult to tell that. I'm starting to doubt whether I'll get it done in time for his birthday in August. May well end up as a Christmas present then.
The middle one is a birth sampler for my friend Fiona's baby, who is due in September. I'm not saying what it is - it's a surprise and you'll have to check my desk every week to see how it gets on.
The one on the right is the Cat Pile cross stitch. It has been started, at least. If i'd been clever, I'd have stood back a bit so you could get a view as to how big that piece's Aida fabric is.
I was going to start another one for another friend's birthday (Nathan's mother, to be exact) but the design of a cat in amongst mosaics and flowers comes out of a hardback book she bought me for Christmas and the picture isn't very clear. It requires me to sit down with some square paper to knock up the pattern properly. As I also want to turn it into a lavender bag, it's a project for the near future.
I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at my desk this week. I intend to look at as many desks this week as possible. Take care all of you!
