Page Finish

I can't believe I have finished another page in three weeks.  To be fair it was blocks of colour but I am still really pleased.  My fastest page finish ever lol.  I am really hoping that I might be able to finish this row before the year end so we shall see.


Until next time, happy stitching.

Lizzie Kate Finishes

I had two Lizzie Kate finishes in December 2020.

The first one was Cat Lessons for People which I stitched for my friend's 50th birthday.  She reintroduced me to cross stitching so I thought it was appropriate to stitch her something and she loves cats.  I have been meaning to stitch her something for quite a few years.

The second finish was the Spirit of Christmas mystery SAL that I started in 2018 and finished it on 27 December 2020.

 Happy stitching

Mini The Possibilites Eveelution Rainbow

I started this project on 1 January 2019 for my eldest son with the aim of finishing it for his graduation.  I finished page one in May 2019.  I didn't finish page two until May 2020 and page three on August 2020. I finsihed page four on 1 January 2021, page five on 7 February 2021, Page six on 17 March 2021, page seven on 23 April 2021,page 8 on 15 May 2021.  May son received his BA Hons in Fine Art in July 2021 but luckily for me he is working towards his Masters so I am hopefully going to get it finished by the time he graduates in December 2022 (that is the plan!).

I finished page nine on 28 September 2021.

 This is the whole project as it stands at the moment.

I will be back with more of what I have been stitching in the next week or two.

Happy Stitching

Life Events

In the time that I have been away from blogging I turned 50.  I had a small party with family and asked a cake maker if she could make me a cross stitch cake and this is what she made me.  I didn't really want to cut it up but it tasted as good as it looked!

We also had a new addition to the family.  A little girl born to my nephew and his wife called Daisy-Mai Patricia-Anne and I made her the ornament below from Little House Needleworks for her first christmas (a tradition of mine).  I am pleased to say it was well received by Mum and Dad and Daisy of course.

In my next post I will post some of the wips I have been working on.

Happy stitching

Stepping back into the land of blogging!

 I know it has been a while and a lot has happened since I last posted but as this came up in my Facebook memories as being four years ago! I thought I would share it on my blog with the hope that perhaps I can upload every couple of months.

This is my last finished Heaven and Earth Design - Mini Ariadne. She was framed four years ago and I am really pleased with her but so sad that I haven't finished any others.  I have quite a few wips and some new starts since I last posted but I will show them next time.

Since I last posted I have been made redundant but was lucky enough to get another job after about six months of looking.  It is a full time job and cuts into my stitching time quite a bit but I try to get some done mostly at the weekends and sometimes in the evenings once or twice a week.  

My eldest son graduated this year and my youngest son is Assistant Head Chef at Zizzis.  I am so very proud of the young men they have become.

I will be back soon with an update and to show you my new wip.

Happy stitching
