I just had to take this pic! The ghost of a Polar Bear.
The Pandas nose and mouth is just appearing there too. I'm heartily sick of stitching with white though, so the effect is about to be spoiled, as Mr Polar Bear will get his nose today as I want to work with some stronger colours.
The end of this piece is close, and I'm itching to get it finished, I have plans for these babies and I want to start something new.
Because I forgot last week, here's a pic of my week old birthday flowers, Hunney bought them for me, aren't they beautiful? I love lillies, especially these scented ones. I think they look odd without their stamens, but that orange pollen makes such a mess, I removed them this time, looks like I need to go round again as a few more buds have opened.
I have the perfect excuse to stay home and stitch all day long, as it's raining cats and dogs again! I do feel so sorry for all those people trying to enjoy a summer holiday, rain is no fun.
