House Built!

Sorry I didn't post last week but there was so little progress on my stitching it didn't seem worth it. I have managed to get a bit more stitching done this week so I can show you my progress on LHN Winter Band Sampler. I have managed to get the house built! I am loving stitching it.





Sorry for the terrible photo the weather is terrible today and I have had to take it inside.

I have made some progress on my Stitched With Love Exchange but obviously can't show that but am hoping to get it finished this week, fingers crossed.

I can show something that I have been secretly stitching and that is LHN Strawberries that I stitched for Jane as it was her birthday last week.



This was stitched on 28ct Mushroom Lugana using Crescent Colours and backed with the red gingham in the background.

I am pleased to say that Jane loved it as it has three of her favourite things, Bunnies, Strawberries and Gingham. This was another lovely stitch.

Thank you to everyone that takes the time to leave a comment, they really make my day.

Until next time, happy stitching

Great progress on the band sampler. The Strawberries pattern looks cute, and the fabric is perfect for it! I just ordered this pattern (and a couple other fruit ones) and plan to stitch it next year :)
