At last I have "finished" finished Shakespeare's Peddler Jenny Bean's Pin Tuffet. I stole Chris' idea of a tin finish the same as the one she kindly made me for my birthday last December. It's not perfect but for a first attempt I'm quite happy with it. I sent it to Fiona ( no blog), one of my oldest online stitching friends from way back when we met on Stitchaholics Welcome, as she has been a wonderful online friend and often texts, emails or sends me messages on Facebook to see how I am etc. I am glad to say that she loves it :)
So what else have my eager beaver stitching fingers been up to. Well I have shamelessly had three new starts in the last three days. Yes you read that right! Three in three days. I so need my stitching. Sunday evening I started Little House Needleworks Red House in Winter. I love the look of this one and am looking forward to getting more stitched this coming Sunday. I'm stitching it on 36 count sand linen like I did the others.
Monday evening's new start was another Shepherd's Bush Fob for the SAL I do with Barb and Colleen. This time I picked up the Glad Tidings one which is another chart that dear Barb sent me. I did a little searching through my GAST collection and picked colours as close as I could to the picture and this is the front almost finished. My poor sheep is legless at the moment!
New start number three was last night and Chris and I started our SAL of The Drawn Thread The Sanctuary. Kajsa is also joining us in the hope that she can get hers finished :) You'd be amazed at how much time that middle bit took! I got confused ( it don't take much!!!) and thought I'd misstitched the whole lot when I'd got quite a lot done but, thankfully, it was just the row I'd just stitched! Phew!!!!
Last piece of stitching is my progress on BBD AotH Moonlight Visitor. I did some house building this time. The brick laying is done so I can start putting in the windows and the door:)
It's AND night with Lisa tonight and I can barely wait to sit on my comfy sofa and get stitching :)
So that's all my stitchy news. I heard from Stephanie at Thread Bear yesterday and my BOAF Sally Spencer Sampler chart has arrived so that's something to look forward to it popping through my letter box:) No way will I be starting it yet but I have the threads and will dye some fabric:)
I'm way behind on reading and commenting on blogs and I really need to sort myself out and get caught up. I seem to waste so much time playing games again on FB ( good to tell I'm really down) so those are going ( again) except for Hatchlings as I really like that!
My prayers go out to all those affected by the tornadoes in the US.
Take care everyone.
Love & hugs
