Once I'd got the second I Love Treats stitched I decided I really needed to make a start on The Cat's Whiskers Heartstrings, which is an absolutely gorgeous design which can either be framed or made into a bourse and I am doing the latter with mine; twice! I always find it difficult to come up with something that bit different to buy DH's aunties at Christmas, as they are both in their 80's, so thought a little bourse would be nice and maybe put some chocolates or perfume in them. So this is my progress on my first one:) This is delightful to stitch and I would recommend this chart to anyone as it's so well presented and the instructions for the bourse are so straightforward:)
As I said last week I think I can well and truly say now that I am off the chart wagon and I can say that even more so this week! I needed something for the ornament I'm stitching in Simone's exchange and as there is no half decent LNS here I knew I'd have to order it online. Well I couldn't just order this little thing from Sew and So for £1 postage could I so I also ordered the Just Nan Christmas Biscornu! Naughty, naughty Sally! I am so pleased I ordered it though as it is absolutely beautiful and I would love to have it stitched for display this Christmas. Having said that I am not entirely sure that I'd want to put it away anyway! So here's a piccie of my recent chart acquisitions! In the piccie you can Needleprint Sarah Moon's Quaker Sampler, Just Nan Christmas Biscornu and With My Needle Quaker Hornbook.
As planned we went to see the film Stardust:) Well I have to say that if you get the chance to go see this film, do! It is absolutely magical and I loved it from beginning to end and would happily watch it again:) I will admit to having tears in my eyes at the end for all it wasn't a sad ending but an incredibly beautiful one.
Just found this Heroes Personality Test on Nicki's blog so had to have a go! We love Heroes in our house and never miss an episode.
