A Legendary Finish !!!

I finished Legendary !!! It has turned out much better than I imagined. This is a design I created myself to celebrate the end of one of my favourite shows, How I Met Your Mother. I stitched it on Crafty Kitten Fabric (seemingly my goto hand dyed of choice !!!) using Dinky Dyes Silk number 44. This was my first time using Dinky Dyes silk and it won't be my last, although pricey it was worth it. The quality was excellent, the thread was so soft and the dye quality was perfect. So without further ado ...

Happy Stitching Everybody !!!

Border tastic !!!

Been steadily stitching away on the border for Legendary, I am using Dinky Dye thread for the first time and they are beautiful. So silky and it glides through the fabric. Next update on this should be a finish, yiphee !!!

Happy Stitching Everybody !!!

A Finish and More Legendary !!!

It's been a while but work has gotten very busy at the moment. After all the stress of the last few weeks I have actually had some good news. I am being promoted, which is fantastic but will mean less stitching time. However I will be getting more money which means more stitchy spending haha !!!

In terms of my stitching I have a finish. I finished Woodland Sampler that I showed in my last update. It has some lovely charms on it. However, these were a pain to get. The magazine was quite new but the charms weren't available in lots of shops. I did manage to get them in the end. The pattern was extremely easy to follow and there were no corrections to be made. It was my first design completely stitched in anchor threads. I didn't see any great difference between them and my normal DMC, although I did think they were a bit shinier ...

I've also done some more work on legendary and have finished the lettering. All it needs now is a border ...

Happy Stitching Everybody!!!
