Stitching For The Ones You Love

My heart was genuinely warmed by the beautiful comments I received on my last post. I've had so many much-need interweb hugs! Thank you all so much for your kindness. I know I am not alone in losing a furry friend and it was so comforting to have such friendly comments to read. Thank you again for taking the time to make me feel so much better :)
I have a finish to share! I thought I would get in another progress picture, but I couldn't stop my needle flying. Here is the finished Venusaur . . .
The end of this project is in sight. I'm picking out some backing fabric with Lawrence when we go for a wander around Southampton tomorrow and then hopefully I can do this finishing early next week. Then Lawrie will have the completed set displayed in his dorm room. I'm so pleased I've been able to complete this requested project for my lovely boyfriend. I'll be sure to take snaps of all three of them together!
When the last stitch in Venusaur was complete, I was eager to start the next project as soon as possible. I picked up an inherited kit from my sister. It's bad really, but I bought this kit as a present for Char's birthday. At least it's found it's way back to a good home! I plan on framing this one when it's all done.
Here's my small start on Humphrey's Corner Lottie's New Scooter . . .

Yes, I did buy this particular kit for my sister Charlotte, even though Lottie is not her favourite nickname, which is why I call her it :P Little sisters are wicked aren't we? :P
I hope you've all got a lovely weekend planned. I had a lovely trip out with my mum, she bought me lots of food goodies and we had dinner out at Buddy's Diner. I had ribs and they were delicious! Lawrie's taking me out for lunch tomorrow, aren't I a lucky lion?
Have a wonderful stitchy weekend!

Congrat on your finish. I agree, you do need to get a pic of all of these together. Lawrie must love them!
Enjoy your new start.
