Feelin Festive!

This week I have been working on my ornament SAL with Angela and have finished April's, just in time, Lizzie Kate's Feelin Festive.  I managed to take it's photo outside as it is quite sunny today unlike yesterday where we had strong winds, hail and rain more like a November day than an April day.   It is stitched on 28ct Bone Jobelan using DMC threads.  I enjoyed stitching this and have just to make it up into something - not decided what yet though.

My ornament for May's SAL is Candy Cane Wishes by Plum Pudding Needleart.  I am not sure which one yet so it's going to be a surprise to you and me lol.

I have made a start on my Round Robin but am going to keep you in suspense for another week until I get some more done before I reveal what it is going to be.

Until next time, happy stitching

IHSW Progress / Tusal

I have been very quiet lately as I have been stitching like a mad woman on HAED Be Good.  This is my progress after IHSW.  I would have liked to have finished page one but it is just not happening.  I am going to put this aside now as I am delighted to say that I have been asked to participate in a round robin and need to make a start on that and also finish my monthly ornament SAL with Angela.

I am a bit late with my TUSAL for this month but here it is.  I have gone back to my old ort container and it is made up with just my Santa this month.

Until next time, happy stitching

Tea Room Finished!

First of all I would like to wish you all a Happy Easter. I have to say it is typical bank holiday weather here at the moment. It has been raining all morning and it doesn't look like its going to stop anytime soon lol. It has to be said in my neck of the woods we need the rain as we are in the middle of a drought and a hosepipe ban.

I finished CCN's Tea Room yesterday. This was part of a stitchalong with Angela. Anyone who has stitched this will notice that I have stitched the outer border. This is due to the fact that I haven't left enough fabric either side to allow enough room for the border and to allow me to frame it. I am hoping to get a white frame so think it will look great, I hope so anyway.

I have decided to stitch Lizzie Kate's Feelin Festive ornament for my ornament SAL with Angela.

I am going to order my threads this week for the HAED Ariadne SAL which starts in May and I have seen a couple of stitchers on Facebook who have already started it and I have to say I can't wait as she looks gorgeous.

Until next week, happy stitching

Be Good!

I have worked on my Heaven & Earth Be Good design this week as it was calling me. I am enjoying this but can only work on certain colours as I am waiting for my thread pack to arrive. I am not so sure I shall like the rest of page one as there are a lot of a couple of stitches here and a couple of stitches there but so far so good.

Short and sweet from me this week.

Until next time, happy stitching
