Simple Little Quaker


Simple Little Quaker
Originally uploaded by stitchyangel

Wahoo, here's my latest happy dance! I was determined I was going to get this piece finished this week and I have:) This is Papillon Creations Simple Little Quaker, stitched on 28 count Fairy Dust Lugana using VC Dragon Blood silk. I have thoroughly enjoyed stitching this and am looking forward to stitching another of Yvonne design's in the future. This will going to the framers. I think I know the frame I want so I'm hoping he still stocks it.

So tonight, after searching through my stash to try and decide what to stitch next, I will be starting La D Da Love is Patient on Sassy's Fabbys COTM Cheryl's Wild Rose. I was going to stitch it in DMC rather than the called for Crescent Colours but I had a few of them in my stash so decided to order the others I needed from Lekker Threads. I can work round those for now until they arrive.

I'm doing well so far stitching from my chart stash ( OK on the chart stash wagon!) and am still very determined to last until 1st December. I have had no urges to buy charts, although my wish list has grown a bit! LOL!

I have both Jess and Abi home at the moment! Abi has been struggling with a nasty cold all week so I decided this morning that she could in for first period, as she had a Maths test that she didn't want to miss then have to sit on her own, then go to matron and get her to ring me to pick her up. They're both going to the doctors later so that'll be fun!

Hope everyone has had a good week. I hope you are all safe, dry etc after all the rain we've had here in the UK this week, with more forecast.

Love your Simple Little Quaker Sally, the colour you've used is absolutely gorgeous.

Glad to read that you haven't had any urges to buy charts, neither have I. I've had my chart stash for so long now that they will seem like new to me, I've forgotten what half of them are. (LOL) I'm also being good in trying to use what fabric and threads I already have and not buy more of those than is absolutely necessary.
