Orange, Orange and More Orange !!!

I've done another few hundred stitches on Autumn Owl Trio, it is perfect mindless stitching !!!!




I've also been working on my sew and stitch quilt. I have now just completed part fifteen (there are 90 issues and I have just received the last one). This part was about attaching the other parts all together and doing some embroidery over the top to link the squares ...




I have also been so inspired by all the hoop art that is on Instagram that I thought I would have a go. It's by no means perfect but I am enjoying it so far ...







Happy Stitching Everybody !!!

Some Progress !!

I've made a little progress on HAED Autumn Owl Trio but this project is secondary whilst I try and power through my Mothers project (which you can see on Instagram, I'm @stitchydondesigns). I've done about 1100 stitches of 722 so far. Because I'm picking it up inbetween smaller projects it doesn't seem so boring !! It also helps that the fabric is so gorgeous (from the Crafty Kitten) ...




I've also done some more playing around with my design and program and have put more designs up in my etsy shop (look in right sidebar). Here are the two I have stitched up since I last blogged ...

Rainbow Journey ...





And a funny quote ...




I have also started a new handbag project. This is to carry around with me to stitch on whenever I get the chance so it won't get any focussed time but bits and pieces here and there. It is called Treat Yourself and is from the latest issue of The World Of Cross Stitching !!




Happy Stitching Everybody !!!
