Lots to Show!


First up is my last TUSAL for 2012.  I think there is a lot of threads in it and a good selection of colours.  I think Daffycat is thinking of doing this again next year and I for one will be joining.



Next up is my progress on Haed's Mini Be Good.  Unfortunately due to Christmas preparations, I haven't touched a needle all week so although I had hoped to get some more done I didn't.


 In the last week it was Sally's birthday and I love finding a design to stitch for Sally.  This year I stitched a sheep from Candy Cane Wishes.  It is stitched on 28ct mushroom jobelan using DMC threads.  I finished it as a flat ornament.



Lastly my Stitching Sister, Angela, and I decided to do an private ornament exchange and we decided this week to open them.  I am absolutely thrilled with the design Angela stitched for me.  It is one of my favourite Lizzie Kate designs that I have seen Angela finish before and adored it and am so lucky to have one of my own now.  Thank you Angela.






 This is the design I stitched for Angela.  It is a Plum Pudding freebie that I stitched after I saw a conversion on a blog whose details I can no longer find.  I thought this was a gorgeous conversion and perfect for Angela as it is a Snowman, one of her favourite things and mine, and blue, one of Angela's favourite colours and mine.  I am so pleased Angela liked it.  Again it is stitched on 28ct mushroom jobelan using DMC threads and backed with the fabric you can see in the background which I think is gorgeous.



I told you I had lots to share lol.  I am going to try and stitch tonight on my Ornament SAL with Angela that we are going to continue with next year.

Until next time, happy stitching

Love Lesleyanne xxx
