Poppy Progress!

This is my progress for this week on my Lanarte Poppy. I do enjoy stitching this and could quite easily carry on with it.

I did stitch on LHN Red House in Winter but unfortuantely I made so many mistakes on it I have decided to bin it. I had managed to fudge a couple of mistakes I made but on the third and uncorrectable it went flying across the room lol. I seem to do this with littler projects so might just carry on with my bigger projects for now and try again later in the year.

It is the Christmas Design SAL next week and I have a new start. I will be stitching Blue Ribbon Design's Peppermint Twist and am looking forward to this. Just have to decide on my fabric. Can't design between Summer Khaki 28ct Linen or nice old cream 14ct aida. No doubt I will decide by tomorrow.

It is bank holiday monday tomorrow so no work for me so a little extra time stitching.

Until next time happy stitching

Row of Love Progress!

This is my progress of Dimensions Row of Love. I enjoyed stitching this this week. I would have got some more done but I took my second son for his grading in Karate so missed most of Sunday afternoon. But it was well worth it as he passed and is now an Orange belt. Well done darling.

This week is the turn of my LHN Ornie SAL and I will be stitching "Red House in Winter" and I have to say I can't wait as I LOVE this one. I seem to have a thing for houses at the moment lol.

Thank you to everyone who leaves a comment as it really does make my day.

Until next time, happy stitching.

More New Stash and TWO finishes!

More stash has arrived at my house. I ordered the threads for LHN's Ponsietta House, my next stitch on the Christmas Design SAL. I also ordered Blue Ribbon's Peppermint Twist, again for the Christmas Design SAL. I think this will probaly be all the new stash for a while.

My first finish of the week was LHN's "Winter Sheep". This seemed to take forever for such a small design. I have also received the next one of this series "Red House in Winter". Can't wait to start it.

After finishing "Winter Sheep" I carried on with my At Home with Jane Austen SAL and have completed it. I enjoyed stitching this soooo much. I will get it framed eventually probably not for a couple of months. Many thanks to Sally, Barb, Hazel and Tracy for allowing me to join the SAL.

That's all from me this week, I am off to stitch on my Dimensions Row of Love.

Until next time, happy stitching.

New Stash!

I have been on a little stash acquisition of late. Below is LHN Needle and Thread that I brought from Sally ( Thank you Sally.

I brought the two charts below from Elisa ( Angel in the Cloud and Summer Iris. Thank you Elisa.

This is my progress on LHN Ornie SAL "Winter Sheep". I seem to be struggling with this one a bit so as I am still waiting for my threads to come for my Christmas Design SAL I am going to carry on with this as it is a christmas design. I am hoping this is not cheating too much lol.

I am however loving my Sampler Girl's At Home with Jane Austen. This is my progress from this weekend. Sorry I forgot to iron it before taking the picture.

Well I am off to carry on stitching with Winter Sheep.

Until next time happy stitching.
