Anniversary Sampler Finished!

I finished the Anniversary Sampler for my mum's friend last night. I haven't taken a photo because I have taken it to be framed. I will post a photo once it has been received.

I have kitted up my next LHN Ornie for the SAL, He's a Flake, and will start that today whilst watching the replay of the figure skating.

I didn't want to have a no photo post so I have taken a photo of my stash cupboard. I got this in January and have to say it is lovely. In the draws I have my current projects. On the top shelf I have my fabric, small set of drawers holding my crescent colour threads and three large DMC thread holders.

On the second shelf, I have my kits in a tub, small kits in the wicker basket and charts in a pink lever arch file.

Until next time, happy stitching.

So Near Yet So Far!

This is where I got to on my Christmas Design SAL. I haven't had as much time stitching on it as I would have liked as I was out three times this week. I went to see Holiday on Ice and also Les McKeown from the Bay City Rollers singing songs from the seventies. Both nights were fantastic. I have run out of the colour "Spinach" so will have to order some more. I wont be placing an order for a while, not just for one thread, so it will be a while now before this is finished. When its my Christmas Design SAL next I will stitch another Lizzie Kate, either "Joy" or "Christmas is...". Feel free to leave a comment and say which you would like me to stitch next.

I should be stitching on my Lanarte Poppy this week but my mum has asked me to stitch something for a friend's 60th wedding anniversary which is in March. I will start it tomorrow night once I have got everything kitted up. I will work on this until it is finished. It is not very large so hopefully wont take very long.

Until next time, happy stitching.
