Hmmmm, my blog post titles seem to be getting worse! Oh well never mind! Lol!
First of all a massive thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post. I am still looking for a suitable alphabet to use to personalise Garden Bliss but I am sure I will come across one soon.
Last week it was dear Shirlee's birthday and as she loves sheep, like me, I decided to stitch this for her.
Christy Schmitz Swirly Sheep
Victorian Motto Thread
Birthday Gift for Shirlee.
I am happy to say that Shirlee loves it. I also included a needleminder but didn't take a photo of that!
I've been attempting to get some stitching finished up and this week I've managed to get two pieces done.The first one is the travelling pattern Little House Needleworks Summer Garden.
I used the ribbon that was on the flowers that DH sent me for my 50th birthday last year and the lovely little wooden button was in a pack I bought from The Works ( where Abi works! ).
I had plans for Little House Needleworks Warm Winter Woolens after I saw it finished on Pinterest. Mine is a little different in that I used gingham ribbon for the handle. I'll be on a look out for some wintry foliage or something to display in it.
No finishes since my last post although I have had a new start. It nearly wasn't as I couldn't make my mind up which fabric I wanted to use. The big piece I bought from Sew and So on sale would have been fine had I not already cut a piece off to use and I knew I wouldn't have enough for all 12 cottages. It's discontinued so I may not have been able to get anymore so I ended up using 32 count raw opalescent linen! So here's my start on Country Cottage Needleworks January Cottage.
More Country Cottage now and Frosty Forest! I actually can't wait to get all these done and have this up on my wall!
Oooh talking of on the wall here's my Needleworker! I took it in to get framed and remembered to go pick it up yesterday. It's hard to get a good photo but I'm really pleased with it.
Barb and I are keeping up with our Spooky SAL! I now have a spider, a bird ( who does need a bit more to him!) and I have started the key. Loving stitching this as it's such a fun one!
I think I may need to have a finished page happy dance this Saturday ( fingers crossed) as I think I will finish page 3 of QS Spirit of Winter Robin. I'm aiming to make time before then to grid the next page just in case. I'm so excited to get more of this done. I definitely have my enthusiasm back for him.
I now have more delphiniums on July's Delphiniums. They are so pretty too. I have to admit I'm itching to get this one finished so I can start August's Poppy as it's one of my firm favourites.
No progress on Tricotine as DH and I were at an evening wedding "do". I've been stitching away merrily on one of the ornaments for the private exchanges I'm doing and it should be finished tomorrow then I'll start another :). I've missed ornament stitching so thinking I should go back to one a month next year!
That's all my stitching news for this time. You never know I might have done some more finishing by the time I blog again lol!
Take care everyone.
Until next time.
With much love.
