Anyway enough of that. Time to look at what I've been stitching! On Saturday evening I finished all the cross stitching on part 3 of Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV, then yesterday afternoon I sat at the dining room table and sewed all the beads on. I am happier now with the ribbon at the bottom and think it looks better now it's done and the tiny pinky coloured beads are on. I haven't added the crystal heart yet and am going to leave that off until the end. I must admit that I am loving this mystery now that I have got going with it. It's going to be so pretty and sparkly and it seems a shame just to have it on display at Christmas so I amy well end up keeping up all year round! Lol!
Last night I was going to get Chatelaine Summer Afternoon out early and do a bit on that but I was chatting to Lisa and she suggested something quick like San Man Origninals I Flip for the Ocean. I told her I couldn't be bothered to sort fabric and threads for it but then when I went to get my stitching out I thought how lazy is that! All I needed was about 4 threads and a small piece of fabric so I got the chart out and had a sort out. I stitched most of it last night and just had the tiniest bit of backstitch to finish this morning so here it is. It is stitched on 32 count fabric using the suggested DMC threads except for the backstitch as I chose to do it in blue rather than black. The charm came with the chart.
So Monday to Friday this week is Chatelaine Summer Afternoon with LHN Chocolate Shoppe on Wednesday afternoon! I am looking forward to getting into Summer Afternoon this week and hope to get plenty done.
I have just bought some fabric off Ebay from Sugar Maple Fabrics and am waiting for Mindy to send me a total including shipping. I love Mindy's fabrics but haven't had any for ages. I bought my last lot off Ebay and stitched some of the L*K Flip-it's on them. I can't wait to see what colours I get! Lol!
Well I'd better go and hang some more washing out while it is fine. It is looking very much like rain but it's supposed to a nice week here on the east coast! Have a good week!
