Stitching Finishes and a Winner!

The winner of my blogaversary is Mylene. I used the random organiser. Congratulations Mylene please could you email me your address so that I can get the charts in the post to you. Thank you to everyone who took part I only wish I could send you all something as your comments really brighten up my day.



I am sure many of you know I hate finishing my stitching into things. So when Karen V of My Favourite Things, http://kvstitching.wordpress.com/, offered a finishing service I was keen to give it a try. So I sent off Peppermint Twist and a recent visit I haven't shown you L*K's Jingle and this is how she finished them. I am absolutely delighted with both of them. I can't believe my stitching could look this good. Thank you Karen and be sure I will be sending some more your way. I have borrowed Karen's pictures with permission as my camera's batteries are out and I don't have any more.









I have been stitching on Vervaco's Sweet Dreams Baby and have made some progress probably not as much as I would like as I have also been watching Wimbledon. Destressers are very much in need at the moment which is probably why I have been stash buying which is not good for the purse. I will show what I have brought when it arrives.

On Monday L*K Lovers blog are having a stitching day so I am going to have a look in my stash and start a L*K design not sure which but will show it next week.

Until next time, happy stitching

Oh Lesleyanne, I adore your finishes! Your stitching is so gorgeous and I am just in love with the ribbon on Peppermint Twist and the fabric on the back of Jingle, not to mention the embellishments.
I am all for stash as therapy, myself, but the wallet does take a beating ;) Enjoy your goodies and Wimbledon, as we are enjoying here as well.
And I say have a wonderful stitching day with the L*K ladies...sounds like you deserve a day of fun time.
XOXO
