Henry VIII and all that.


It is some time since I posted because I have had visitors and been on holiday in Germany. This has meant I have not been able to use my workstand. The UFO has gained because I am using a hoop which I was able to take with me. The design is growing on me a little,although I still do not like the skintones. Anyone who does not like to backstitch can see the difference it makes to the Tudor roses. The sharp eyed will have noticed that Catherine is still missing her C. This is because I know all the Catherines do not begin with a C as shown in the chart. In fact the other two begin with a K. I hope to stitch in the C tonight along with more backstitching.

The gaps are still for beads. I changed Henry's dagger as you will see and this just needs a jewel in the handle or should it be hilt?

Best of luck to all you other UFOers out there and enjoy a happy frog free stitching weekend.

Wow what fantastic progress you've made. His dagger looks good. The pic with your alterations looks quite eye-catching. I like your framed Garden it looks quite spectacular. You really have made headway with your UFO, at this rate you'll be on another one before too long. You'll have to have either more visitors or another hol if thats how it speeds up the stitching. Keep up the good work. Happy stitching to you.
