Back from the Framers / Tusal

I have been out into the garden today as the sun was shinning although it is still a bit chilly to take some photos.

First up is The Sampler Girl's At Home with Jane Austen which I picked up from the framers a couple of weeks ago. I am really pleased with how this turned out and it will be going on my bedroom wall shortly.



Next up is my orts jar for the March Tusal. It doesn't look much different from last month but is still made up mostly of Temptation and a few strands from Belle Pepper.



Finally, as it is my birthday on Monday I have been spending my birthday money. Yes I know I haven't actually got it yet but when I saw Sew and So had L*K Jingle All the way on their website my clicky finger had clicked before you could say Happy Birthday lol and there is no point in paying postage for just one chart so another couple of L*K landed in the basket. The snowman is for the December SAL with Sally and Chris. The birthday wishes is for my son who turns thirteen this year. He was moaning at Christmas that I had stitched a L*K First Christmas for his brother and not for him even though he has got a First Christmas ornament so thought I would stitch this for him.



The other two charts are from fellow stitchers who were selling on their charts after they had completed them.

Until next time, happy stitching

Love the Sampler Girl framed finish, cream, my favourite and would match my bedroom wall too!!!
Happy Birthday for Monday and what better way to spend it then collecting some more super charts, glad the Cup Cake reached you okay, I was beginning to worry that Postie had let me down.
Have a good weekend xxx

The Jane Austen looks beautiful - I love the double mount with the cream frame.
I wish I'd known you liked the Historical Sampler's cupcakes chart - I could've passed mine along to you - never mind!! It looks amazing when stitched up and I've used the chart a few times to stitch single cupcakes for cards/ornies for friends.
