August Ornie

I have spent the last week on and off stitching my August ornament SAL with Angela.  I decided to stitch Country Cottage Needleworks Merry and Bright.  Another piece I have really enjoyed especially since I loved the colours in this one.

I stitched this on a mystery 28ct light pink fabric, not that you can tell from my picture, using DMC threads.  I will finish this as a flat ornament when I have a f f f f finishing frenzy which needs to be soon as I have about five ornies to make up.

I am gong to work on Lisa's RR this week so will post a picture when I have done my block.

I don't know whether you have seen the new Lizzie Kate releases and the Little House Needleworks Ornament of the Month but I can tell you know they will be mine when they are available in the UK.

I also need to tell you that Sarah at Craftymoo is having a great giveaway so pop over and have a look.

Until next time, happy stitching

Both myself and my stitchy bug have been AWOL for the last month.  I had my new Olympic start and was really enjoying it but due to being so engrossed in the Olympics I haven't stitched as much as I would have liked.  Even whilst on holiday my stitchy bug didn't put in an appearance.  I have nearly finished page 1on Mini Rose by HAED but not quite but will show you a picture anyway.

I have to put this aside now as my husband has put his foot down with a firm hand and told me I HAVE to start his Chelsea Football Club logo or he is putting the Iron Maiden poster up in my front room especially since I have stitched for other people and not him.  So what's a girl to do.  So in the next couple of weeks I will be starting it after I have stitched my monthly ornament SAL with Angela and Lisa's RR that needs to be posted shortly.  At least I will have something to show you.

I am late again for my TUSAL but here its picture although there is not a lot of difference from last month.

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to leave a comment.  I don't say thank you enough but it really does make my day and I do appreciate it.

Until next time, happy stitching
