So close . . .

. . .  and yet so far! Farmhouse is so close to be completely finished. I have finished the backstitching on the centre panel and all of the animals I've stitched so far. I've also finished the border, thank goodness it match up on my first attempt! Just got to finish the geese, back stitch them and then that's a wrap! I thought I would save a picture of that project until the big reveal, I'm hoping it won't be a long wait :)

As well as Farmhouse, I've also made a little progress on my darling kitty kat stitch . . .

 
In other stitching news, I've inherited another project! The mother of one of my housemates kindly donated a box of her unfinished stuff to our house. We all got a share of threads and ribbon, as well as a couple of projects to finish. I got a Winnie The Pooh bookmark that I've nearly finished, and this lovely Popcorn design.

 
I think I will complete the remaining stitching and backstitching, then finish it up properly as a thank you for a generous gift. Here's hoping she will like it :)

I hope you've all got a lovely weekend planned. I'm spending the rest of the afternoon studying, but I'm visiting Lawrence tomorrow which is always great :)
Best wishes,
