Sweet Baby

Yesterday I finished stitching my Shepherd's Bush ornament for May:) I hope Chris is proud of me lol especially as I totally missed stitching one last month! This was a very quick stitch and as usual with an SB piece I love the colours. I always find their designs so soothing to stitch. I didn't have the SB moon charm as they are a bit expensive so I won't be using any of the charms in these.

Shepherd's Bush Sweet Baby
36 count Sand linen

DMC
Started 8th May 2011

Finished 17th May 2011
Following close behind will be this piece that I started for my SB SAL with Barb and Colleen on Monday evening. I chose a quick stitch this time so this one is the 2008 Fob. I've almost finished the front, I just have some backstitch to do, then I can stitch the back. I'm not going to change the wording or year on it as I like it the way it is. Does anyone have the 2009 Fob chart that they would be prepared to lend me please? I just missed out on that one early last year as Fobbles had sold the last one they had!
Ooh I almost forgot my progress on my AotH piece! This is my progress on Moonlight Visitor from Friday and Saturday evenings and I'm really enjoying this. 

That's all my stitching for now. I'm still working on getting JB's Pin Tuffet finished finished, if you know what I mean, and I'm hoping to get that done very soon. Also have a gift to make up as the stitching is finished so I'll be keeping myself busy:)

In light of my up coming therapy/counselling sessions and not wanting to fill this, my stitching blog, with all that stuff I've finally started a new blog. I thought it might help me to get things written down. I've been going to do this for a few weeks but the one thing stopping me was a title for it! Anyway Stitchyangel's Journey is the title and I blogged my first post yesterday so if you'd like to read it please do.  Just because you read my this blog please don't feel you have to read the other one:) Also please don't think any less of me for putting down what I've been through etc. It wasn't easy to write it and I did think about making the blog private but for now I'm going to leave it open. I welcome any comments and if you've been though anything like this I also welcome suggestions, things that helped you, anything really.

I need to get caught up on blogs so I'm going to grab a cuppa and something to eat and make a start :)

Take care everyone.

Love & hugs

Sally

I have done this piece before. I love it. I like SB older patterns. I did not add the charms either.

Carol said...

Such pretty pieces, Sally--your SB ornament is so sweet :)

Cristina said...

All your stitching is wonderful.

Lesleyanne said...

Lovely stitching Sally. I love your SB finish and don't think it is any less gorgeous without the charm. Great progress on your AotH.

Christina said...

Every time I read your blog Sally I think to myself that I must stitch another Shepherd's Bush piece soon. I love stitching their designs too.
Writing your feelings down is a brilliant idea. When we lost our baby last year I made many entries into my personal diary and when I read it back now, there are many things that happened that I don't remember and emotions that felt so raw at the time have now healed. It's affirmed for me that time is a healer, despite not believing it at the time!

SO beautiful stitching. Your SB ornament and fob are just lovely. And Moonlight Visitor looks great too. Are you stitching one big piece with all of the anniversaries...or do you do them in single pieces?

Julie said...

Love the SB ornies, sorry cant help with the fob chart, i hope someone else can.

Lisa said...

Congrats on your ornie finish, so cute! And you're almost done with another, well done speedy sis!
Great progress on Moonlight Visitor as well.
Hope you enjoy stitching on AND tonight, I'm looking forward to it.

Elisa said...

Deb said...

Such sweet finishes and WIP progress.

valerie said...

Cute finishes Sally! And great progress on AotH. I am so behind now since I've been too stressed to attempt the over 1 and have gotten carried away with Mary Wigham as I'd really like to finish it soon.

Send me an email about the 2009 SB fob pattern. I think I have it.

Christine said...

Two lovely finishes Sally, and Moonlight Visitor is looking great
