Humphrey's Corner

I am so happy that I've finally made a start on my baby sampler, it's a nice feeling stitching something for our baby. I am loving the pale colours on the fabric I chose, I think it was a good choice.
This is what I've stitched so far.

I also took my feather fairy cross stitch into be framed, and I went down for a drive with my sister Kelly who also wanted to get a picture framed for her husband. I decided on going for a pale wooden distressed frame with no matting. I decided against the matting because the fairy has so many different colours I found the matting took the attention away from the fairy just because it looked too much. There was too much going on, just because there were so many colours. I am happy with what I chose though, so can't wait to get her back from the framers to see how she looks.

Tonight I've managed to get a little bit of stitching done between baking a sticky date pudding. We are off to my friend Natalie's house for dinner tomorrow night and I said I would bring dessert. Of course Natalie wants me to bring my stitching too. :-) I am looking forward to it.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and......happy stitching xx


  1. Lovely progress on Humphreys Corner. I can't wait to see your feather fairy framed. Have a nice weekend.

  2. Nice start on Humphreys Corner. These are such cute pieces.

  3. I'm so glad that you've taken feather fairy in to be framed - I think she was screaming out for it as soon as you put the last stitch in! It's very exciting to think she's almsot completed her journey. I can't wait to see her on your wall. ;)

    I'm so glad for you that you have got some stitching done on your baby sampler too. Hope you have fun at Nat's - always good to stitch with a friend :D xxx
