Winner / IHSW / Finish



I hope you all had a fantastic International Hermitt and Stitch Weekend.  I know I did.  I managed to start and finish my monthly ornament SAL with Angela.  It is Plum Puddings Needleart Candy Cane Wishes


I haven't showed my May ornament which came from the same chart.  Sorry the picture is a bit blurry - not sure why.  I will stitch the final one from the chart, the Gingerbread Man, and then finish them all together which I am really looking forward to, not.  You know by now finishing is not my favourite thing lol.


I got a lovely surprise in the post this week from June who had finished LHNs Gingerbread Village with the lovely material you see in the picture.  I asked her where she had got it from and she very kindly sent me what she had left as well as some ribbon and buttons.  Thank you so much June.

This is the card June sent which I thought was gorgeous too.



Now for my giveaway.   I counted the number of comments for the giveaway, 28, and put them in the random organiser.  It chose number 16 which is Delphyne, congratulations.  Can you email me you snail mail address and I will put the chart plus a couple of LHNs in the post to you.  Thank you to everyone who entered I only wish I could send you all something because I really appreciate all your visits and comments they really make my day and to know people like my stitching is magical.

I hope you all have a lovely stitchy week.  I am not sure what I will be stitching this week as I am torn between working some more on my HAED or stitching one of the many LHN/CCN charts I have but whatever I stitch I will show you next week.

I am a bit behind on my blog reading but hoping to catch up this week so if you haven't had a comment from me and usually do I will be doing shortly.

Until next time, happy stitching

Love Lesleyanne

Two lovely ornaments, really nice.
Keep stitching ornaments and praticing the finishing, it becomes easier as you do.

Well done to Delphyne on the win.

Those are adorable, Lesleyanne. I just love that chart--have only stitched the gingerbread man (three times actually!!), but seeing how cute your other two turned out, I can see I'll be stitching them, too :)
