Merry Christmas and a Finish!

I have been stitching like a mad woman and have finally finished my first Heaven and Earth Designs chart. To say I am thrilled would be an understatement. I loved stitching this piece apart from page 2 where I had a little wobble and vowed never to stitch on it again. But I put my big girl pants on and filled all the silly little squares I had left, lesson learnt, and soon got into the swing of it. So without further ado my I present Mini Be Good for Goodness Sake, artwork by Dona Gelsinger, chart by Heaven and Earth Designs. I stitched it on 18ct magic guide aida using 2 threads over one square.

I was also very honoured to be asked to stitch a square on Sally's 50th Birthday quilt. I hope Sally doesn't mind but I have borrowed her picture of the completed quilt and my square. Lainey and Mouse organised this lovely surprise for Sally with Mouse making up the quilt. Thank you both for asking me to take part. I stitched Littlehouse Needleworks Joy and Peace which I thought was very appropriate given Sally's love of sheep.
I would like to end this rather long post by wishing all my readers a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. I really do appreciate you taking the time out to visit my blog and leave me a comment. They really make my day. Love Lesleyanne xxx

Chelsea Logo Framed & Tusal

I have now collected my husband's birthday gift from the framers.  I am very pleased with how it has come out and he was thrilled when I gave it to him yesterday.

It is also Tusal time again with Daffycat.  Here are my orts, lots of blue from the Chelsea logo and on top of that there is some threads from Mini Be Good for Goodness Sake which I am going to work on for the foreseeable future as I only have three partial pages which are very confetti heavy.

Until next time, happy stitching

Love Lesleyanne
