Gorgeous Grace

I told you earlier in the week that Grace was looking much improved since I frogged and re-stitched "Needleworker"

 I'm much happier now and I've completed a bit more too.  I hope it won't be too much longer before she is finished.
She is really quite petite stitched over one - the scissors are 4" long.
 I'm now looking at ideas on making her into something ~ I have decided that I don't want a framed piece.

It's gorgeous today in my part of the world ~ I have laundry whirling in the breeze and more in the machine, all the windows open to let in the lovely spring air and I'm doing bits of this and that.  Bees and butterflies are floating around outside ~ lovely signs of spring. 
The LM car has rear wheels again and has been cleaned and polished to within an inch of it's life ~ he's now pootled off to the TVR CC  meet.  Don't ever tell LM I said pootled ~ I'm sure it's quite inappropriate when speaking of the LM car!  He'll be back in an hour or so and then it's my turn to "pootle" ~ nervous or what!

She's just beautiful and I'm glad you like the finished piece. What about a needlebook with her ?
Having seen your progress here on her I just had to order the chart for myself. Thank you for the inspiration.

Oh! Grace is lovely & dainty! Beautiful finish, Kate.
Please let us know how your "pootle" turn was. So relieved the rear wheels are back on; how horrible, 'A man without his wheels.' lol
Enjoy!

Stunning stitching Kate. Lol - I had a car once called Tootle, and yes I used to pootle in Tootle. How did your drive go?

Wow, your stitching is so neat over one! I must admit I'm not a huge fan of stitching over one, but I love how it looks once finished. It's lovely to find another blogger from the north-east!
