It is that time of the month yet again for reporting our stitch from stash triumphs etc! So I'll get that bit over with and get onto my stitching.
Month : October
Balance Carried Fwd: £92.44
I did spend a little more than I intended as I needed two lots of fabric. I have one more Shepherd's Fold to come probably next week and that is done. I am intent on treating myself to a few new charts before the end of the year then next year NO CHARTS lol! Just fabric and threads when I need them. I will need lots of encouragement though!
So I have had a couple of finishes since my last post. Finish no.1 was Christmas Birdhouse.
Merry Merry was started by both Barb and I. Love this one.
Finish no. 2 and a massive happy dance was December's Holly which is the final one in the series of the Garden Journal charts. I do still have the journal cover to stitch but I think I'll do that later.
I had a page finish on QS Spirit of Winter Robin and made a small start on page 2. I may do 2 evenings on this now to try and get more done.
Ooooh I can now show my square for Mouse's quilt.
Dragon Dreams A Spot of Tea
32 count white evenweave
When I posted this to Mouse I also sent this.
Lizzie*Kate Night Before Christmas Sled Mouse
Brown perforated paper
As soon as I saw this chart I had to stitch the Mouse one for her! I am happy to say that she loved both the square and the sled :)
My November Cottage is coming along nicely. I do love these bright colours in it.
I finished one side of the My Home Fob and started the other side. It is so pretty.
A few weeks ago my lovely friend Chris broke her ankle and was feeling rather down. All her crafting supplies are in her loft so I decided to pop onto Patchwork Rabbit and kit her a little something up for her stitch. I chose Potted Poinsetta which is one of the Little House Needleworks Sampler Tree ornaments. Well imagine my surprise when an envelope from Chris arrived this morning and I found that she had also stitched it for me as well as herself and sent the chart to me. Thank you so much Chris. I love it.
So if you would like to stitch this chart please say so in your comments and I'll pick a winner next time I blog :)
I have still not managed to catch up on blog reading and commenting. I feel so bad as it's something I used to do so regularly and I really must try so much harder. I much prefer blogging to Instagram etc and I most certainly do not want to lose the friends I have made.
Until next time.
With much love.
PS I don't know what has happened to the writing on this post!
