IHSW / FINISHES!

I decided to work on L*K Snowman 10 this week. I started it on 1 December as part of an SAL with Sally and Chris. It stitched up really quickly and was a lovely stitch and I managed to get it finished.



I stitched it on 14ct Blue Marble Aida using the recommended DMC threads apart from 712 I used 3865 instead.

I would like to thank Sally for buying this chart for my birthday last year and letting me join the stitch a long.

On Friday I started a Brittercup Designs pattern from JCS Magazine July/August 2010 called Mine! As it was International Hermit and Stitch Weekend I stitched all weekend and finished it as well.



I stitched it on 14ct Opalescent Aida using the recommended DMC threads.

I haven't decided how I am going to finish either of these yet.

Finally I will leave you a picture of my Tusal for January. I have a new ort jar. This is just the lid where I put my orts and I will tip them into the jar now. I couldn't put them straight in the jar as it is stripped and you wouldn't see the threads.



Until next time, happy stitching

Love Lesleyanne
