My New WIP!

I am just so impressed by my new WIP I just had to share what I stitched last night! Lol! It is Papillon Creations Simple Little Quaker and it is my first Quaker type sampler and I don't think it's going to be my last. This is stitched on 28 count Fairy Dust Lugana using VC Dragon Blood silk. I thoroughly enjoyed stitching on this last night and can see me not getting bored with it and stitching on it all week.

My order from Needlecraft Corner arrived today so that was quite quick as it was posted last Wednesday. So I now have everything I need for stitching two more charts as well as another chart! Lol! God I hope I live to be a ripe old age or all my lovely charts may well go to waste! I keep seeing so many gorgeous pieces when I go blog walking but daren't add anything else to my wish list! Lol!


Right I have a question for you crafty ladies! Do any of you know where I can buy the chimes for windchimes ( within the UK if possible)?


I am so fed-up at the moment. I've been feeling that way for a few days now and today I'm having to wait in for DH's auntie to drop a key off for me so that my sister's partner can get in to replace her central heating boiler. I was hoping she'd come early this morning so I could get out for a walk but I'm still waiting. So typical. Just feeling so alone, unappreciated and all that jazz right now.

Quaker looks gorgeous Sally, I keep thinking I'm going to have to add one to my rotation soon, but can't decide which one I like most lol.
Sorry you're still feeling down, it seems to be going around at the moment as there are quite a few of us struggling right now. Sending lots of love and hugs.

Your sampler is off to a good start Sally. As fpr seeing so many lovely charts when reading other peoples blogs, well.....when I read yours and ventured on to the Papillon site to look at what you were doing, I came across the Floralie chart. Oh dear.... I don't really need any more charts and don't think I have enough wall space left for any more, BUT I am just going to have to have this chart, it is so beautiful. Really think I'll have to give up the Internet then maybe I won't buy any more and will get round to stitching what I do have.
