Weekend progress

As I said in my monthly goals My Ark has been put away for while and I pulled out another project to work on at weekends.

This is Angel of the Morning from Lavender and Lace.
I have no idea when I started but it was before 2004 when I started to keep a record.  I do remember being so in love with her that I drove over the pennies to Wye Needlecraft in Bakewell (now sadly closed) on the day she arrived in the shop so I could get the chart and supplies for her.
She was started and then as happened so often back then a model arrived and once it was done something else was calling my name.
She went out on a UFO RR at one point and this is how she returned home to me and in turn how she looked on Saturday afternoon.

And here's how far I got with her

Lovely to see this one again and I have another friend that doesn't blog who's working on this one. I hope you found your happiness with her again.

Another lovely one that has been languishing in the UFO drawer... great progress.

It's nice to see an older project get some stitching time. It will be beautiful when finished.

This is a lovely design and it's nice to see it out again.
I remember Wye Needlecraft although I never went there. Did they used to kit up L&L charts as I bought Celtic Noel as a kit back in the 1990s!
