My second finish of the month that I can show is Drawn Thread The Sanctuary! I finished the stitching on the 1st of the month and finally finished all the hemstitching yesterday. I took it to craft club with me as I was feeling really tired so my eyes were tired too and I thought the hemstitching would be nice and easy. Several of the ladies were intrigued by this piece and thought it was beautiful. This was so lovely to stitch and it definitely keeps you interested with all the different stitches. The chart is now for sale so please email me if you're interested.
Drawn Thread The Sanctuary
32 count linen
DMC and WDW
Started 24th May 2011
Finished 1st November 2011
I'm not quite sure what to do with it now it's done. Any suggestions on how to hang it on the wall?
I plucked up the courage to make my pouch for LHN Travelling Stitcher at the weekend and armed with the instructions Katrina sent me and the measurements and fabric Lisa S had sent me I set on. It is most certainly not as easy as it looks but by Sunday evening I had these two. One for me and one for my surrogate sister Lisa seen as we started stitching TS together when we had our stitching day back in August. I don't think they are too bad for a first attempt. As you can see I've got my stitching sewn to it so it's ready to use:) Once I get the needle case done I'll use it for craft club for smaller charts and fabric.
Jane and I have decided to put our Blackbird Designs AotH on hold until the New Year so we can concentrate on some Christmas stitching. I haven't actually picked mine up for a while as I wanted to get The Sanctuary done. So I'm planning on some ornament stitching and a few other bits I think.
I stitched a bit more on Little House Needleworks Winter Band Sampler, my SAL with Lesleyanne and Angela, on Sunday evening. I just love this piece and am really looking forward to having this on my wall.
Monday was Christmas Carol SAL night with dear Barb and we are now both building. I just don't seem to be able to get this house done but, hopefully, next week I will have it all finished. I'll move up then I think.
Finally Barb and I started another SAL last night! Yes I did say another one. This time we're having a Jane day again and we're stitching Good Tidings with Jane Austen ( I've been calling it Glad Tidings- sorry Tanya!). I got quite a good bit stitched last night and really enjoyed it.
It's SAL night with Lisa tonight and 6 Fat Men ( lol) so looking forward to that. I'm going to order the next 3 charts in the JJ's Birthday Sale tomorrow:)
Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my Peacock Pin Keep finish! I loved reading them all.
I just got the latest BBD Loose Feathers from Amy at Down Sunshine Lane. I also got Little House Needleworks Snow in Love ornament as it's so cute!
I better get going and get myself sorted. I planned on stitching up The Primitive Needle By the Light of the Moon this afternoon ( a bit late for Halloween I know!) but I'm not sure I'm in the right mood!
Thanks for popping by my little stitching place.
Take care everyone.
Love and hugs
