This is my TUSAL for the month of November. Mostly orts from my christmas gift stitching and Lizzie Kate Baby Sampler. I have signed up for the 2012 TUSAL and if you want to do so just click the link and it will take you to the sign up page.

Here is the Lizzie Kate Bably Sampler all framed and ready to go to my cousin who had baby Sophia on Friday 25th November. I am really pleased with how this looks and hope the new parents will be too. Sorry for the mark on the picture it appears to be on my camera!

I have stitched one christmas gift ornament and started another one and will show what I can next week when they are completed.

I got on quite well with my Christmas shopping, I only a few gifts to get but am waiting for them to be released so hopefully it wont be too long. Then its the wrapping and christmas card writing.

Until next time, happy stitching

IHSW Weekend!

It was International Hermit and Stitch Weekend this weekend I decided that was what I was going to do. Luckily since I managed to catch a lovely cold my family agreed lol. Unfortunately since my brain was obviously not working at full pelt I spent the weekend stitching my Stitched with Love Exchange
exchange piece and obvously I can't show you doh!

At Stitched with Love Exchange we are showing our favourite christmas pieces so I thought I would share mine here too. It is Lizzie Kate's 12 Blessings of Christmas stitched in 2009. I love this piece although I have still to frame it, maybe this year lol.

I have started the first of my four ornaments I want to stitch as gifts, two of which I can show, two of which I can't.

I have three days off this week to get some Christmas shopping done, wish me luck.

Until next time, happy stitching

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
