Here we are in June. Did I really say June? Hard to believe we are almost half way through the year. During this week you'd have thought it was Autumn rather than Summer but it looks like better weather is here although please don't let it get too hot!
I have been getting a few bits finished up this week. Some were already half way done and just needed trim on.I'll show those first then get onto my new starts and WIPs!
Country Cottage Needleworks Snow Love was finished up the same as the model as I loved Vonna's finishing.
As you can see Christmas Cheer was waiting to be done and here's how it looks now. Not bad for a first attempt with a rotary cutter and wave blade! I still have all my fingers intact!
Do you remember The Snowflower Diaries Angela from last year? ( I know it's shameful that she's had to wait this long to be done! ). Well here she is.
Finally Blue Ribbon Designs Owls in Moonlight which I stitched a few months ago. I'm not happy with my cording on this one.
I have a few more to finish. Well a lot more to finish lol!
I have been trying to stay away from my tab in an evening this week and get plenty of stitching done instead. I have had three new starts two of which are Country Cottage Needleworks. The first one is July Cottage.
I will make some changes to this but not sure what just yet. I think I'll just leave the flag off and maybe add a flying bird or something. I'll leave the fireworks as we have a carnival here in July and there is always a firework display.
My other CCN start is Let Us Adore Him. Barb and I moved our Christmas ornament SAL to Thursday just for this week. I really like this fabric. It is so soft.
My third new start was Cottage Garden Samplings November's Chrysanthemum. I can't believe I am almost done with this series! At one point I thought I'd never finish them lol!
I have been making good progress on my ongoing WIPs except for Shepherd's Bush My Mom's Garden as I started with a flashing in my eye so had to put it away. That was the second episode in a week which was a shock as I haven't had it for a long, long time. I am planning to get this finished this evening if I can then I can start the first part of the fold next week.
I would like to pass the chart on when I've finished as Barb passed it on to me. So if you'd like to stitch this please just say so in your comment :)
Comfort is coming along nicely. I hope I have enough thread but I should do with me stitching it on 40 count.
Page 5 of my robin was started on Saturday evening and I have to say I really did not want to put it down! My DH was out at some trials riding on Sunday afternoon and the girls were doing their own stuff playing Lego Lord of the Rings ( hilarious! ) so I got it out again and did a little more.
Finally my other SAL with Barb which is our Halloween SAL and a little more stitched on Ghoul Tidings :)
I signed up this week for part B of Stitch from Stash but I get a feeling I won't last long on it! Have you seen the new Lizzie Kate mystery that is being released starting next month? I truly believe I am a lost cause when it comes to stitching stash and I should just give up trying to be good right now lol. I am very tempted by the new mystery ( there are sheep in the sneak preview! ) but then I think I really don't need anything else and I have so much to stitch it's silly. However when has that ever stopped a stitcher?! Lol. I think I'll sleep on it a bit!
I got sorted with the leaf edging on my afghan at craft group. One of my oldest online friends helped me but I still couldn't work out just how but 2 of the lovely ladies at group helped and I was sorted! Fingers crossed I can actually remember when it comes to the next corner! I'll take a photo next time I blog.
That's it from me today. Until next time take care everyone.
With much love.
