Last week the lovely Lainey had a birthday . I had planned what I was going to stitch for her but still managed to be late getting it in the post to her. Here is what I made for her. I'm not 100% happy as I struggled to get ribbons that would match.
Lamb Alphabet from World of Cross Stitching
Vintage Country Green linen
Birthday gift for Lainey.
I also included a sheep needleminder from No More Needles ( if you're on Facebook have a look for the page. It is my surrogate sis Lisa ).
I'm very happy to say that Lainey loves it :)
I've been beavering away on my WIPs although as you can see from this photo HAED QS Spirit of Winter Robin is going slow! I'm SALing with Lisa and she is the one keeping me going with it.
Another HAED has come out to play this week as Gill and I decided that we'd get our Gelsinger Santas out again this month and stitch on them through until Christmas. We will stitch on these when we have our crafting mornings.
I'm getting on very well with Garden Bliss. It looks prettier with every stitch! A few more weeks and it might be done :).
I am getting back into Frosty Forest now. I hadn't said anything but I'd got a bit fed up of it although I love all the blocks. Anyway I started building Bluebird Cabin and am now feeling much better about it! It's funny how a slight change can make all the difference.
My delphiniums are growing nicely on July's Delphinium. Love these colours. They look so pretty. I'm so bad as no sooner have I started one of these I'm desperate to finish and start the next one! I've seen WIP of both the August one and October one and wish I was stitching those lol!
Final WIP which I adore is Tra La LaTricotine. I just love every single thing about this and of course there will be a sheep on it soon! Poor Barb has had problems with hers and is now on her 3rd start :(.
I had some super post yesterday as my Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments magazine arrived and also the last year's Halloween special. I have been following Dani's WIP and finish on Instagram of Silver Creek Samplers Happy Halloween from that mag and loved it. By the way if you're on Instagram please feel free to follow me using the link in my sidebar :). I haven't had a proper look at the ornament mag yet. A quick glance left me deflated after the excitement of it arriving but I usually feel like that until I've had a proper look!
My tickets for Harrogate arrived the other day so reality has set in that I'm actually going! Time to start that list I think!
That's all for now. Thank you for continuing to visit me and leave me such lovely comments. I appreciate them all. It seems to have been a little quiet of late on the blogging world.
Take care everyone.
With much love.
