Hi everyone! Thank you for all the lovely comments that you left when I shared my finished
last time round. I
really do appreciate them and you certainly know how to make a girl feel good
about her stitching! Christmas
There I was all excited about finishing CG and looking forward to picking a new project. Wouldn’t you know, I couldn’t decide what to work on next! I flip-flopped between one thing and another. There is a larger project calling my name but when it came to the bit I just couldn’t seem to settle to it. So, instead of that, I've been stitching a couple of smaller pieces that have been on my 'to stitch' list.
First up, another block completed on PSS Halloween Hornbook Sampler. I may change the colour of the ghost (I’m assuming it’s a ghost!) to actual white as I’m not totally convinced that it pops off the fabric enough. Going to do a few more blocks and then see if I still feel the same way. In this pic it definitely doesn't 'pop' off the fabric, it does look slightly better in real life!!! The block for June I’m really looking forward too! It’s one of my favourites in the whole piece.

Next up, a small finish to report. Way back in February Linda of Keeper of the Crowes shared her February Word Play finish and when I’d commented on how much I loved it she very kindly offered to send me the chart so I could stitch it myself. Well, of course, I was deeply involved in
when the chart
arrived so there was no February finish of this one by me. It’s all good to go for next Feb though
(and gives me lots of time to actually finish it into a pillow!!!). Thank you
Linda for being so generous in sending this one on to me. Christmas

Then there is this one, another small start, Little by Little’s Quaker Blackbird.
This one I’m stitching on 32ct LL vintage light examplar using the suggested DMC threads. Hopefully a finish next time I blog!
Have a good weekend everyone! Can you believe we’re into June?!?!?!
Until next time ……..
