Biscornu Exchange and A New Start!

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments on my Sea Stars finish:) It's now at the framers and I should get it back in a week. I am planning on hanging it in my dining room above some shelves but that could change yet!

Now that Hazel has received the biscornu that I stitched for her in the private autumn colours biscornu exchange she organised I can show it here:) I am very happy that Hazel liked it as it's always a bit of a worry when you're stitching for someone else:) I also sent some fabric and threads in autumny colours.

Stitched for Hazel

I'm looking forward to seeing who is stitching for me:) ETA: I have just received the most gorgeous package from Amanda. It's her first exchange and all I can say is wow!!! I am going to give it a post of it's own another day as it thoroughly deserves one. Thank you so much Amanda; you have truly spoilt me and your stitching is gorgeous.

Wednesday I had a good evening on HAED TT Letter J ( Artwork by Selina Fenech). I am hoping to get the second page finished very soon then I can get onto the smaller pages!
Last night I had a new start and that was Bent Creek Christmas Eve. The chart calls for 18 count linen but I don't have any and decided not to buy any but use 28 count natural linen from my stash instead. I am using DMC as opposed to WDW and GAST as I didn't have any of the WDW in my stash. This will be DH's Christmas stocking!

I have chosen a design for DH's auntie's birthday card so must make a start on that soon as her birthday is 16th October.

It's certainly very autumnal here now and rather chilly. I am waiting for my groceries to be delivered from Asda feeling rather cold! I don't often do grocery shopping online but needs must this week I'm afraid as DH is working late two evenings and working on Sunday and tomorrow Jess has an open day at university.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hugs
