Finishes and a New Start!

As I hoped I managed to finish the stitching on All Our Yesterdays the Ligthouse on Friday, it just needs the outlining done. I will post a picture when this is complete.

I also stitched a scissor fob, a freebie that I had seen on a blog somewhere that I just HAD to stitch. When this is made up I will post a picture lol.

I think I mentioned in a previous post that I had entered the Lizzie Kate Lovers Creative Challenge. I don't know why becuase I'm I no finisher. Its not something I particularly enjoy and I am not particularly good at it. So it came as not great surprise I didn't win I don't think I even got a vote but the winner, whose name I can't remember, was a fantastic finish and I offer my congratulations. But I can now show you my finish but don't look too closely lol.



As I had finished the stitching on my Lighthouse on Friday night I started my weekend project. I started Lizzie Kate's Halloween Sampler which I have a for a couple of years and have never got round to stitching it. I have to admit this is my first attempt at Halloween stitching and this is my progress as of tonight. I have to say I LOVE this one. I love the colours and it has stitched up quite well as well.



This week I will be stitching on Blue Ribbons Peppermint Twist and am really looking forward to working on this one.

Until next time, happy stitching.

An itch to cross stitch.. said...

Well done on your finishing, I think it looks great. I am not too confident on finishing either, i'm yet to try some myself.

I like the LK halloween pattern, it's cute and I love the colours too.

Your scissor holder looks just fab! But I especially love the Halloween Sampler. I love, love, love Lizzie Kate. Her designs are so simple, but so effective, and she uses great colors.

I think your finishing looks great! In regards to my trip - we stayed in the travellodge which was overlooking the sea. It did a cooked breakfast too!! x
