Time to share a finish.....Chartmakers Crows, Corn and Cats. I enjoyed stitching this one.
Those cats eyes though!! I have to admit to having been taking the option for a while of using beads when french knots have been called for in a design. Much easier just to attach a few beads! Well, this one didn’t shout ‘beads’ to me, french knots seemed more appropriate. I just had to see if I could still remember how to do them!! The black cat on the corn stalk? The chart shows just one french knot but no matter how I tried this one just kept looking like a one-eyed mutant cat. The other cat is slightly better but, to me, it still looks like its eyes are pretty quirky!!
I’ve just started on this one….
La-D-Da’s Live Laugh Love. I’m stitching it on LL Light Examplar. I didn’t have the Gloriana silks and when I pulled the DMC alternatives I wasn’t that taken with them. Instead I’ve opted for CC Red Currant, English Ivy and Blackbird. While I’ve only really started on this so far I’m happy with my colour choices.
Well, I didn’t manage to blog before the end of September but let me share my September Christmas ornament. Not only stitched but I actually managed to finish it too!!! This one is a freebie by Brightneedle from a number of years back.

Have a good weekend! The sun is shining here, the leaves are starting to change colour and sometimes there’s nothing nicer than an autumn morning. Given the amount of rain we’ve had this week, it’s lovely to see. As always, thanks for dropping by and I hope all is well with you and yours.
Until next time……
