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 !!!

An Itty Bitty Finish !!!

I've finished Itty Bitty Pumpkin, the day after Halloween !!!! It was a quick stitch and I have got much quicker at stitching over one.




I have also made a new start, HAED Autumn Owl Trio, the first page is 7890 stitches of dmc 722 !!!! Perfect mindless sewing !! I am stitching on hand dyed fabric by Jodyri Designs. The fabric is 25 count and is called Turning Leaves. This is my first time ordering from her and I'm really impressed, the fabric is lovely.




I have also been doing some knitting. I have always been able to basic knit but this is my first time doing any sort of pattern and it turned out quite well if I say so myself. Instead of using stuffing I finally used up some of my orts that I have been collecting for a couple of years ...
