Poppy Progress!

I have worked on my Lanarte's Poppy this week. I haven't done an awful lot because I managed to get a summer cold so although the mind was willing the body wasn't. Apologies for the bad picture - not quite sure what went wrong this time.

Unfortuantely over the weekend my cold became a little worse and I wasn't able to work on my At Home with Jane Austen SAL but will hopefully will catch up next week.

I shall be working on my LHN Ornie SAL this week, Winter Sheep. I want to get this completed as I have had an email to say the next ornie, Red House in Winter, is ready to be shipped and I know I will want to stitch this as soon as I receive it.

Until next time, happy stitching.

Christmas Is.... Finished!

I finished my Lizzie Kate Christmas Is this week for my Christmas Design SAL. I think I may stitch LHN Poinsettia House next for this SAL. I have got a bigger design on order so will stitch that afterwards. It is stitched on 28 ct Summer Khaki Linen using DMC threads.

I have also been stitching on my Sampler Girl's Jane Austen at Home SAL with Sally, Barb, Tracy and Hazel. This is this weekend's progress.

Whilst out shopping the other day I came across some square frames the right size for my monthly LHN Ornie SAL, although I don't intend framing them all, I did want to frame "Snowy Pines" and will also want to frame the next one out, "Red House in Winter", I LOVE this one. So I brought three frames and framed Snowy Pines yesterday whilst watching Doctor Who. I have to say I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I just have to decide where it is going now.

Until next time, Happy Stitching.

I have stitched a lot of Blue this week. I didn't do any stitching the week before last so many different things on in the evening I didn't pick up a needle. This week I carried on with my new start, All Our Yesterdays, The Lighthouse. I had already stitched the top of the lighthouse and the boys' hats so last week I stitched the sky. I probably would have got more done if I had read the instructions and only did half a cross stitch and not the whole cross stitch.

This weekend I joined another SAL with Sally Barb, Hazel, and Tracy, (I would love to add links to these blogs but don't know how, if anyone could help, please feel free to leave a comment). We are stitching the Sampler Girl's At Home with Jane Austen and this is my progress for this weekend.

I will be stitching on my Christmas Design SAL this week as I didn't get it done when I should have. I think my rotation has gone to pot a bit. Never mind I will catch up sometime lol at least I am enjoying my stitching and that's what it is about.

Have you seen the new LHN Ornament of the Month? It is gorgeous, definitely my favourite so far can't wait to receive it so I can start it.

Until next time, happy stitching.
