A Finish, Some Progress and more Nancy Giveaways !!!

I've finished another little Hobbycraft kit that I keep in my handbag to pull out and work on whenever I can. I LOVE meerkats so I had to have this one when I saw it !!!!




I am making slow progress on my soluble butterfly project. I am liking learning something new by using the soluble material but the project isn't that enjoyable to stitch. I am finding it difficult to get the threads in the same holes as the fabric underneath is quite thick but I don't want gaps !!! It is nice to stitch with the bright colours and I am in no rush to finish this one I just work on it when I feel like it ...



I am also halfway through the first page of HAED Autumn Owl Trio. The first page is only dmc 722 ( I've already gone through one whole skein !!!!!) but I still love it. Instead of working left to right like I normally do I am going to work the pages top to bottom so that I get some variety in the stitching ...



Happy Stitching Everybody !!!

PS hop over to Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe for some really fun giveaways !!

  2. The Meerkat finish is absolutely gorgeous. Isn't it amazing how much detail can be packed into a 20 x 30 stitches design?
    Your start on Autumn Owl Trio is very... orange! It's a good job you don't mind hours of mindless stitching in the same colour!! :)
