Cornwall Cottage Sampler

After three weeksIi have finally had a chance to work on the Cornwall Cottage Sampler.  This is where I got to initially when I took  a photo of my progress.  We had a few thunder rumbles and a shower and bad light stopped play for a while.  I worked on the basket and added a few flower stems today..
A photo of it how it looks overall.
I thought the shower was going to last longer than it actually did so once we had tidied up after tea I decided to pick up the sampler again.  I have almost managed to get down to the bottom of the flower basket in one colour just a little more to do.  Next week I’m not sure if I will get to add any stitches to it as I have to go into work Sad smile  It all depends on whether I feel tired when I get home.
Today we had a visit from Harlee-Jay – it’s hard to believe he will be three months old next week – just where is the time going.  He brought his mum and dad to visit too.
We also got to see our eldest grandson Connor today who brought his dad with him.  We played with the Lego, went over the park and then tried to play draughts.  Connor had not played it before and so it was a little confusing for him but his daddy tried to help him.  They stayed for lunch to give Elisha and Vicky time to enjoy a girls only day together.  After lunch Connor played Mario Karts on the Wii and was pleased his sister was having a girls only day as it meant he didn’t have to share the controller.
