Giveaway–guess the theme

I’ve added a few more stitches to the Guess the theme piece that I am working on rather more slowly than I would like.  Can you guess the theme of this piece?  I will put together a prize for the person who can guess who or what the occasion might be for this piece of stitching.  If you took part in my last giveaway please feel free to take part in this one too.  I hope to add some more stitches to this one this evening providing the headache I came home from work with goes away!
I’ve also managed to add a few more stitches to the landscape picture from Yiotas cross stitch.  I wasn’t in the mood for a lot of confetti work so I have worked on the pillars of the window frame and managed to reach the bottom of the first pillar.  Now I will try and start filling that one in and when I need a reprieve from all the confetti I will work my way down the second pillar.  Here is where I had got to a couple of weeks ago.
And this is where it is now after I was able to spend yesterday evening working on it while I watched the snooker final.
Also this past week I managed to put some more blue stitches into the Dr Who project – I have put the top row of blue stitches in so I know how wide it is going to be now.  I think I will try and count out where the first few stitches of another colour will go to give me something to aim for.  I have decided the best time to stitch on this is before I go into work as at the moment it requires no counting as such.

Love your stitching, I like the way you have done back stitch as you go along, rather than leave it all to the end.

Nice progress:) That is why I like having several WIPs on the go at the same time; you can switch between different kinds of charts and do different kinds of stitching according to your mood:)

Looks like possibly a birth sampler? At any rate, it's very cute!

Looks cute but have no idea! Could it be sweet dreams? The colours are soft and there is a cute little sheep... maybe it's a sampler... Looks really sweet!!

Awesome progress on your landscape piece. That new one is very cute but I've no idea what the theme is. Farming?!
