TIme to breathe

I'm not working this week so I've had time to just kick back and relax. As a bonus. last week I realised that I still have 6 days of holiday time to take and because of the way my working week is, that means a fortnight off. So when I go back to work, I only have 4 weeks to work before I have a fortnight off.
As the weather is completely horrid as per normal for January, I've decided to stay in and do some stitching and finishing. So far I've made quite a bit of progress as you can see below.
The pieces on the pink linen are from the Essy's friend series from Elegant stitch. The designs are lovely plus the finishing instructions from Lois are fabulous. Its been a lot of fun finishing things in different ways than I've done previously. The checked pillow design is from Trail creek farm. The pillow is premade, which saved a lot of time.
And finally the cherub is the 1996 free cherub design from Mirabilia. I found the chart in with a piece of fabric which I had bought to stitch it on ages ago. I'm hoping to get a bit more stitching done before I go back to work. I've also cast on the second sock too so I should have a finished pair of hand knitted socks very soon.
