The only stitching that’s been going on with me lately has been bits and pieces. I’ve been keeping an eye out for news on the release of the next part of the BBD’s LF and seeing that it is now due out in a few weeks has had me holding off starting anything on the larger side. Getting on with the smaller stuff though does mean that I’m track with those things for this month. First up is this one, SB's Merry Be pin cushion.
Slightly on the large side to be considered as an ornament but hey, that’s how I’m looking on it - my Christmas ornament for this month! I have a great fondness for SB Christmas designs and this one was no different, I really enjoyed stitching it and working with the silks again. I can take no credit for the lovely finishing. This one I sent to KarenV and it arrived back home again on Monday. Thanks Karen for another great finishing job!
Then these two, the October chart from Nikyscreations Primitive Calendar and the next block from PS 12 Days of Christmas. I loved the colours in the little October pillow, those red apples just popped off the fabric! Block #9 of 12 Days of Christmas. My plan is to also stitch the 10th block this month so, with a bit of luck, I should be back on track with these by the end of the month. The PS block is stitched using the suggested fabric (32ct natural light linen) and DMC threads. The little pillow is stitched on 32ct vintage country mocha and suggested DMC threads.
And in amongst those is a new start. DT’s Button Tree using the suggested fabric and threads – 32ct summer khaki and a mix of DMC and WDW.
Although it’s a couple of weeks ago now, thanks for all your good wishes for DS#1 and his running. It was a miserable, wet day but he finished the distance and he has definitely been bitten by the running bug and plans to keep doing it.
Thanks also for the lovely comments you left last time round on my finishes. You sure know how to make a girl feel good!!!
Until next time …..
