Progress Picture

This is my progress after about three nights of stitching. I am going to carry on with this over the weekend and next week in the vain hope of getting it finished some time in the near future.

Hope you are all having a good weekend and enjoying your stitching.

Change of Plans

This is L*K 12 Blessings of Christmas which I finished in January of this year. I really enjoyed stitching this. I am going to wash and iron it and then take it to the framers.

I have changed my christmas stitching plans. I am not going to stitch the patchwork name. I have other presents for the receipent and not for the other people I have something planned for so as time is getting on this is the decision I have made.

I am going to carry on with Orlando Bloom and then L*K Whatever and then the birth sampler for Callum which will be for his 1st christmas. I also want to stitch some christmas cards and I have the first christmas ornament to do for Callum also.

I think this will keep me going until christmas. I have also decided next year I am going to stitch for MEEEEEEEE other than birthday cards. I have so much I would like to get done for myself and most of which I know where they would go in the house. I know this sounds selfish but I only have one thing on my wall that I have stitched.

I have a couple of days off work now to tidy the garden. Whatever the weather, enjoy your stitching.

Weekend Stitching

This is my progress on Dimensions Row of Love. Unfortunately due to things being a bit hectic still I have not got as much done as I would have liked.

Will now carry on with my Stitch a Star of Orlando Bloom and would really really like to get this finished this week - so heres hoping. Will post a picture later in the week.

Whatever the weather, enjoy your stitching.

Yet Another Birthday Card

Here's the birthday card I have just finished for my second son who is eight on Monday. Happy Birthday darling. I have to say I really enjoyed stitching this one except the backstitch (which is not a favourite of mine and I try hard to avoid it at all costs). He is having friends round on Tuesday for a birthday tea and on Monday he's hoping to go shopping after school to spend his birthday money and go to MacDonalds for tea. My eldest son is going on a residential with his class on Monday and Tuesday for some team building.

For the rest of the weekend I am going to work on my Dimensions Row of Love, after I have finished the housework, washing and ironing.

Enjoy your weekend and stitching.

Another Birthday Card

I finished this birthday card yesterday for my husband's sister's birthday. I hope you are not getting bored of seeing birthday cards. I have another to do for this month which I need to complete by Monday and I also have to do it secretly as it is for my second son. I will post a picture of it when it is finished. I am hoping to finish it by Friday so that I can do some more on my Dimensions Row of Love over the weekend. It is part of an SAL with Stitch Direct. Then on Tuesday its back to Orlando Bloom (I really want to get this finished - it seems to be taking FOREVER).

So here's hoping that everything goes to plan.

Whatever the weather, enjoy your stitching.

Winnie the Pooh birthday card

I have FINALLY finished the Winnie the Pooh birthday card. I say finished I didn't do the outlining cos it look awful but I'm sure one year old Lucy won't mind.

I seem to have lost my stitching mojo at the moment - I just can't seem to settle down to stitching hence the reason Pooh bear took so long. I didn't pick a needle up until Friday. I have two more cards to stitch for this week so really need to get a move on.

I'm out on a family meal this afternoon for Lucy's first birthday so will hopefully settle down to stitch this evening. I hate going out on a Sunday afternoon I miss my stitching too much lol and usually Sunday's I can really get going with it.

I will post pictures of the two birthday cards later in the week (fingers crossed) and then I can get on with Orlando Bloom who seems to be taking forever.

Thank you to everybody who reads my blog I can't believe I have 19 followers who read my ramblings and to everyone who comments - its much appreciated.

Whatever the weather, enjoy your stitching.

Orlando Bloom Progress

This is my progress on Orlando Bloom - not a lot for two weeks worth. I apologise for not ironing it before taking a photo. I cant seem to get going with it. But will keep plodding on on Monday. I am hoping that with the boys back at school my routine will come back to me and will really get going on it.

Over the weekend I will be stitching a birthday card for my great niece who is one next week. A Winnie the Pooh cross stitch that appeared in one of the magazines many moons ago. Although I love Winnie the Pooh I hate it in cross stitching because of all of the backstitch (yuk). I will post a picture when I finished it.

Many thanks for your comments on my stitching I really appreciate them.

Whatever the weather, enjoy your stitching.
