My Lovely SB Finish

I feel I have quite a successful stitch week least of all because I finished up my lovely Shepherd's Bush Shepherd's Purse. It would have been fully finished into a purse but when I looked in my stash box I didn't have any wadding so had to order some and that arrived today so I may have a complete finish ti show you next time. In the meantime here it is. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I don't seem to be able to get good photos. I do have some close up shots but I'm having problems uploading and for some reason I can't move my photos :(

Shepherd's Bush Shepherd's Purse Kit
Started 9th February 2010
Finished 19th February 2010
A few weeks ago I did a little stitching on Blue Ribbon Designs Peppermint Twist but forgot to post my progress! Duh! I still have a fair way to go so am thinking when Winter Wingding is done and dusted I will stitch on this on Sundays until it's finished.

And speaking of Winter Wingding I am well on the home stretch now! I think I have fallen in love with this design all over again but not sure what to do with it once it's finished. Lol! Finger's crossed it will be finished next Sunday!

Shores is coming along quite nicely and I am hoping to get block two finished by the end of February. I have two nights to stitch on it before so it might happen! I must admit my old eyes are struggling with the 40 count linen so it's maybe just as well I do only stitch on it two nights a week!

I am still loving my JN piece for the Stitch and Stash SAL and what's the problem with loving and enjoying a piece so much??? Yep you don't want it to end! Lol!

I can't believe we are so close to March. I plan another new start in March and of course it has to be the Shepherd's Bush Shepherd's Fob to go with the purse! Today I've started my needleroll for February and I chose Happy Day ( SB of course!).
I have reduced all the stuff for sale in my for sale blog if anyone is interested:)

Have you all been keeping an eye on the new releases from Nashville Market??? I am thankful that out of all the goodies there are I only really really really really really want a few bits! Lol! I will admit to having ordered Little House Needleworks Needle and Thread chart and thread pack along with the Impie Hattie and Bea Scissor Bed and Pin Pillow. I couldn't resist it especially as I've missed out on other stuff like this. I also love the
Just Nan Pretty Winder Pocket so may buy that at a later date too. I have just seen
Just A Thought My Father's Name chart and fallen in love with that! I think I need to stop looking before my just a few things turns into loads!!! So I'll put them on my wish list and try and behave for a bit lol! OMG I just seen the Shepherd's Bush limited edition scissor fob and it's a sheep!!!!!!!! I LOVE it! Be still my heart!!!

I hope everyone is keeping warm in the rather chilly weather we're having in the UK! It's our coldest winter for 30 years apparently.

Take care everyone.

It all looks wonderful

This weather is getting a bit much now. And its snowoing here again!

Great finish and great progress!

KarenV said...

Your finish looks wonderful Sally!

Great progress on your WIPs too - I love the colours in PT especially. Perhaps Winter Wingdings would look good as a pillow finish, if it's not too big?

I succumbed to a few Market releases, but tried to be good. Fortunately, there wasn't too much that I really *had* to have right now!

Mylene said...

Congrats on a lovely, lovely finish Sally! I Love it!

Beautiful progress on your other WIPs'.

Susan said...

Congratulations on finishing the SB purse - I finished this one a few years back, and I love it.

I love the progress on all your other pieces, too.

I read a market report on the Elegant Stitch website, but don't have any plans to buy anything - stash funds are limited at the moment, so I'll just have to wait, and watch some lovely finishes in the blogs that I read.

Dianne said...

Oh my goodness you are so close on all of your WIPS! Great stitching!

Deb said...

That is a wonderful finish. And you have some great pieces going on! What do you think will be the next one that you finish up? Perhaps nothing with your eye on all the Market goodies! :o)

Kajsa said...

Oh my goodness you have gotten so much done. Love the purse, it's so pretty. Your 2 pieces from Blue Ribbon Designs look so good too, the colors in Peppermint Twist are are so vibrant. And you gotten so far on Shores and Four Seasons too, good job.

Lesleyanne said...

Congrats on your finish. I LOVE your blue ribbon design it looks great as are all your other WIPs.

Hazel said...

Wow Sally so much progress. Ahem I nearly forgot about the Just Nan SAL. I better pull my finger out and get cracking on it before the month is out. I haven't touched it since early Jan. x

staci said...

Wow, all of your stitching is beautiful and you are really making good progress on all your projects! Looking forward to seeing your SB Purse!!!

Kim B said...

Beautiful finish! And your WIPs are looking great too.

I've been oogling the Nashville releases too!

Christine said...

As usual I am in awe of the amount of stitching you have got done! I've been trying not to look at the Nashville releases, I'm too weak ;)

jane said...

Great progress Sally - I don't think I will get my second square finished by the end of the month but hopefully will be able to catch up next month.
I have seen a few things I like from Nashville - the LHN/ IHB being one of them but my favourite is the large biscornu from Karen Kluba at Rosewood Manor - I think I must have that!!

Michelle said...

Lovely stitching - well done. Yes I am about to order the LHN Needle & Thread chart - its a must have. Michelle x

Maxine said...

Fabulous stitching as always Sally :)

Karan said...

Gorgeous SB HD Sally. Great to see PT again, another lovely piece & WW is so close to another HD too. Lovely to see Shores & your JN piece growing. :0)
