June Tusal

I am a bit late posting my Tusal for June but here it is.  I now have two jars, one in the front room where I do most of my stitching and one in the dining room where I stitch when my husband is fed up of watching the tennis which is on a lot with the TV channel Eurosport obviously this is now my favourite TV channel lol.

I have just taken the photo in between the rain down pours.

I am trying to come up with a rotation for myself as I am in a bit of a dilemma.  I want to stitch on my HAED but I also want to stitch the other charts I have in my stash mostly CCN/LHN and Lizzie Kate.  I think I will probably go back to stitching a weekly rotation but if you have any ideas they would be very much appreciated.

Until next time, happy stitching

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

Finished Page 1!

I have finally finished my first page on my HAED Ariadne which I am stitching as part of an SAL.  This page has taken about a month with a little bit of other stitching mixed in as well.

I have also finished my monthly ornament for my SAL with Angela.  I haven't taken a picture of it as you can tell from my Ariadne picture they are not coming out very well due to the awful weather we are having here.

I have today received Angela's Round Robin and am really looking forward to stitching on it and I have also picked up Robert's baby sampler today from the framer but can't show that until he has received it so lots of pictures next time.

I will be drawing my giveaway next Sunday so you still have time to enter.

Until next time, happy stitching
