Back from the Framers!

I took Mini Be Good for Goodness Sake to the framers on Monday.  They said it would be about a week before it would be ready.  Okay I thought no problem but had a phone call on Wednesday to say it was ready.

As is normal the photo doesn't really do it justice.  I am so very pleased with it.  Just waiting for my Dad to put a nail in the wall at the top of my stairs so he can be put up, all year round.

I am currently working on my Ornament Christmas Dreams and have nearly finished the page!

Until next time, happy stitching

Mini Ariadne

I had an unexpected day off on Friday due to the gas man needing access into the house gas so I decided to sit and stitch the day away whilst watching the Australian Open Tennis.  A very lovely day if I do say so.  I managed to complete page 6 of Mini Ariadne and am delighted with how she is looking.  This page contained a large amount of Kreinik and despite my misgivings I got on fairly well with it and thinks it looks okay.  Not sure if you can see it.

I have missed a couple of Sundays on my Santa SAL so am going to stitch on it to make up for the days lost so will post a picture next week.

Until then, happy stitching.

Santa Sunday SAL.

I don't normally post in between pages progress but since it was such a sunny but cold day today I took the opportunity of taking my new start out for a progress picture.

Not a huge amount of progress for five nights of work but it was quite confetti heavy.  As the title of this post suggests I will be stitching on this on a Sunday as part of a Santa Stitchalong on Facebook.  We are all stitching a Dona Gelsinger artwork piece from Heaven and Earth Designs.

I am now going to stitch on Mini Ariadne as it has been quite a while since I have stitched on her.

Please stay safe if you have the awful weather I have heard about.

Until next time, happy stitching

January Tusal!

Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2014 will be a good year for everyone.

Here is my Orts jar at the end of December. I have put these all in a bauble and now have an empty jar which I haven't photographed.

I have started my New Year New Start. It is a Heaven and Earth ornament design called Christmas Dreams. This is what it should look like when it is finished.


This is my start, not a lot.

I have been thinking about my stitching in 2014 and I am not going to set any strict goals but would like to finish the above ornament which I think if I stitch on it every Sunday it should be doable. I would also like to make significant progress on Mini Ariadne. I will stitch on Mini Rose during the Olympics and hope to finish page one. If I can do this I will be very happy at the end of 2014.

Until next time, happy stitching.
