Finally!

Finally, I have finished LHNs Frosty Flakes. I can't believe I struggled with this one. It seems the more I like these little ornaments the longer they take me to stitch them.



I have definitely decided I prefer stitching on my pieces for a week at a time so that I see some progress and I might have finished this in one go lol. I have got, I think another four of these but have run out of fabric so will have to go and get some. Such a shame, I wonder what else might jump in my basket lol.

Last Tuesday it was UFO Night again on the Stitch and Stash Forum so out came Row of Love. If you squint really hard you might be able to see my progress - white on white is so not good lol.



I was a bad bad girl last night and didn't stitch on this, I had a new start which I will show next week when it might not just look like a blob.

Finally, I worked on Lanarte's Poppy. I just love this design and stitching it. I have grounded to a bit of a halt as I have run out of thread, probably thanks to the three false starts on it I had. I have emailed Lanarte and hope they will pop some threads in the post sometime soon. I emailed them for the green in the top left hand corner and they sent some so fingers crossed.



Thank you for all the lovely comments on my stitching. It is very much appreciated.

Until next time, happy stitching.

Oooooh you have some gorgeous wips going on. I love your snowman finish. Yes I am definitely converting to a more one project at a time girl. x

An itch to cross stitch.. said...

The snowman is very cute all finished, he is a happy snowman. :-)
Row of love is looking gorgeous, and yes I can see your progress with the white on white once I click on the photo itself.
There is nothing nicer than starting a new project. :-)

Love the Snowman and the wips are all looking great.

The Trick or Treat finish you asked about is my take on an old San-man Originals. Thanks for your lovely comments. Hugs!

Frosty Flakes and Peppermint Twist took me a long time to finish too ;)
Your FF looks great! I love the colors in that ornament.
Your Poppy and Love Row are gorgeous and will be true works of art when all completed!

Your little snowman is darling, Lesleyanne--I think he is my favorite of the LHN ornament series this year. Good progress on your WIPS, too.

Don't let too much stash hop into your basket when you go looking for fabric :)

Well done on your latest ornament finish, he's such a cutie!
I'm thinking of joining UFO night as well, it seems quite a few are doing well with it now.
