Hi everyone. Well ,we had a busy weekend again . I've got so many photos from our trips out over the last couple of weeks , I could probably have enough posts to last for a couple of months ,lol .
Just wanted to show where I am with Chicken Run as of now . It's coming on quite well despite not getting much chance to work on it last week .
As you can see, I've done the back stitch on the top half . I didn't fancy tackling it all at the end as it's not my favourite part of stitching , but I have to say it really has made a difference to the picture .
And , I know everyone will be itching to see more pics of the kittens. They have settled in really well , are totally litter trained and are eating loads . they love to curl up on my lap or on my V cushion , which is where they are at the moment , but they are also fighting a lot too . I think they're trying to figure out who the boss is , they are yet to learn that it is me ,lol .

FinleySnugglesAlso , I'm sure I forgot to post pics of this before . I stitched it a few months ago , and it has now gone to Aunty Jane to be put on one of the kids quilts.Well ,that's it for now . Don't forget to enter my bloggy birthday giveaway on the previous post . You've got until 30th August.

Thanks for dropping by,

Hi Cath,
Woww, your Chicken Run pic is coming on very well! It is great how backstitching brings a project alive even if we don't really like doing it very much. :-))

Lovely to see Finley and Fraser have settled in so well! They look really cosy in these pics!
