Good Tidings Finished!

The Sampler Girl
Good Tidings to You
JCS Magazine 2011
Stitched on 32 ct Vintage Light Mocha
using recommended DMC Threads

Firstly I have to apologise for my upside down picture I can't figure out why it is like it.  It is not when I copy it over from my phone.  Again I have just to finish it into an ornament.  I enjoyed stitching this one.

I do have another couple of finishes but can't find my SD card that they are on.  They were both birthday presents.  Happy Birthday Elaine for last Friday and Angela  whose birthday it is today xx

I don't know if any of you have heard that Lizzie Kate is going to do a monthly ornament series next year.  I am seriously doomed and really looking forward to seeing them.  They will definitely going on my must stitch list for 2013.

I have been stitching on my hubby's CFC logo but will show that next week when I have stitched a bit more than just white.

Until next time, happy stitching

Tusal - September

I am late, again, with my Tusal picture.  It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have the dates on my blog.  But here is my Tusal for September.  Mainly the orts added are from Ariadne who has seen a bit more progress this week but not enough to share a picture.  My stitching has been a bit intermittent this week and I haven't done much.  I couldn't stitch my ornament as I didn't have any suitable fabric but have now received that from Sew and So so will stitch that this week and my hubby's CFC logo will probably see some action too.   That's the plan but we will see.

I have attempted another finish and have attached a picture.  It is CCN's Merry and Bright finished as a flat ornament again using Angela's tutorial.  I do not like finishing particularly and it is not helped by the fact that I don't think I am much good at it either.

I had to give in and put the heating on this week as it has definitely turned colder in my neck of the woods.

I hope the pictures are okay as I had had to use my phone as my camera seems to have died.

Until next time, happy stitching xxx

Bad Blogger!

I meant to post last Sunday as the week before I had started my Chelsea Football Club logo for my husband but it is basically just white on white so not a lot to be seen.

Last week I stitched on Ariadne as it was SAL weekend and am quite pleased with my progress.  With a bit of stitching on it here and there during the past month I have nearly finished page 3.  This is what it looks like at the moment.

I really love stitching on this one and sometimes find it hard to work on other things but she has to go away for a while as I am stitching on my private exchange with Angela and then I have my September ornament to stitch for my SAL with Angela lol.  I am hoping to get some more done on my other HAED Mini Be Good for Goodness Sake as it would be really nice to have this up for Christmas.

Thank you to those who take the time to read my blog and leave comments, it is really appreciated.

Until next time, happy stitching

Love Lesleyanne

Lisa's Round Robin!

I spent last week stitching on Lisa Round Robin.  I enjoyed stitching this as it is completely different to what I normally stitch.  I have attached a picture of the block I stitched and the whole piece.

I am going to work on Ariadne (HAED) this week and then on Sunday I am hoping to start my husband's Chelsea Football Club logo, I don't think I will be able to put it off any longer.

Until next time, happy stitching
