Halloween Stitching !!!

This year's Halloween stitching is Itty Bitty Pumpkin by Twisted Threads. It is stitched on wichelt 32 count linen in the Tumbleweed colourway. I am stitching over one with one strand of the recommended anchor threads. It's very tiny stitches so stitching is going a little slower but it is only a small design ...

A Sleepy Finish !!!

I've finished my Sleepy Owl project. I've loved stitching this. I started when going through a rough time in work and it was the perfect project to work on, big blocks of colour and an easy pattern to follow. I just love owls !!! This pattern was from Etsy, the designer was threadsandthings1. I stitched it on the usual, Crafty Kitten hand dyed fabric using the recommended DMC threads ...

A Productive Week !!!!!!

Wow, this week has been exhausting!  I have worked some long, hard hours in work but I have still been able to make a lot of progress.  Mostly because all I have done is work, stitch for an hour and sleep !!!  First off I finished a little quickie I bought the other day to work on when I was visiting my sister.  This is called Sheep with Red Scarf (inspiring name right ?!?!?).  This was a small from my local Hobbycraft that is next door to where I work.  The little design was cute but I didn't have enough thread to finish (a recurrent theme this year in my stitching) so I bought a second one to complete it ...




The next finish I had was Arbre Automne, a freebie from the Jardin Prive website.  I cannot describe how much I enjoyed stitching this design.  I just loved everything about it, from the colours to the cute squirrel !!! I think it went nicely with my choice of fabric to and I intend to stitch the other three seasons to match.  I was so excited the photo was taken straight off the hoop, sorry ...



I also have finished the cross stitching on my owl project but you only get a partial pic of that because next time will be a completion.

New Chrimbo Finish !!!

My Christmas Dog design I finished a while ago now has a companion. I finished the other DMC mini kit I had this week. This one is Christmas Cat. I enjoyed these couple of kits and they have turned out quite cute. The patterns were written well without mistakes and the fabric was large enough for the design. However the amount of thread wasn't quite enough for the design, and I had to purchase more, luckily I wasn't affected by dye lots. Here he is ...
