Hi everyone! I’m so glad I persevered with the satin stitch border on Three Crows. Even though it was driving me crazy, once those basting stitches were in, it helped keep me straight. I finished it a couple of days ago so in time to list it as a September finish.

Thanks for all the nice comments left last time round on my wooden bobbin finish. Quite a few people asked about where I’d found the bobbin. I bought both it and the chart from Casa Cenina in
under the listing for Marie Suarez. I’ve had nothing but good experiences in ordering from this company so have no hesitation in recommending them to order from should you want to give them a go. You can follow the link above or click here. Italy
It may be the first day of a new month but time for me to share my finishes from a couple of my monthly projects for September. Both Christmas related. First up is the ornament I picked for September from the PS chart A Christmas Visit. I stitched two from this booklet last year and pretty much love each design that’s in it so decided it was time to have another one stitched for this Christmas.

Then there’s my on-going PS 12 Days of Christmas blocks. This, as you can see, is #8 so I’m still running behind. Given that I really would like to have these all completed (and not just stitched but made into little pillows!) for this Christmas I need to switch up a gear and get back on track with them.
As always, thanks for dropping by! Whatever your plans are for the weekend hope they are good. DS#1 is taking part in his first 10km run tomorrow, in
. He took up running about 6 months ago and decided he needed to have something to aim for and signed up for that. So, we’ll be cheering him on from a distance and hoping it goes well. Edinburgh
Until next time ….
