Another post for today!! Well this week was a good mail week!! I received an exchange parcel this week from Lavon. The exchange wasn't due until November but Lavon sent early and when you see the pic you'll understand why!! Thanks Lavon, I absolutely love everything!! The little witch pin keep is just perfect!!

Thanks again Lavon, I love everything and am really tempted to start one or both of the halloween kits this weekend!! The chocolates will definately be savoured, lol!!



WIP pic update

Hi all

Well it's been a while since I posted. Have had loads of computer problems this past week but it seems they are all sorted out now, thanks to a good friend who's a computer guru!! For the past couple of weeks I've been stitching exclusively on one of my wip's, just haven't wanted to put it down! Here's some progress pics.


Bucilla Paper/Doll Teddy progress as at 8 August, 2008

Stitched on 28ct antique white monaco with kit threads.

And here's my progress as of last night:

Bucilla Paper Doll/Teddy Progress as at October 24, 2008
Stitched on 28ct Antique White monaco with kit threads

This is the bulk of the centrepiece all done, just need to add the gold metallics in the gaps and around the edges, the rest of the border and then all the backstitching!!

This design is from a Bucilla kit, when I purchased it, many years ago, I hadn't stitched on evenweave, used metallics, added charms or used blended threads!! Boy have things changed since then, lol!

Not sure if I'll continue stitching this piece for the upcoming week or will pick up another one of my wip's, guess you'll find out when I post this time next week hey, lol!

Thanks for reading my blog.
Happy Stitching

October's ornament finished!

Hi all

Well I decided I would start my October ornament last night and managed to finish it as well! I went with the Loupy Loo Designs one from the 2007 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue. I stitched it as charted except for the bugle beads, which were just some I had in the stash. Here's a pic

Happy Stitching everyone!



TW Castle Sampler w.i.p progress

Ok I worked out what the problem was, it wasn't blogger, it was me!!! Here's my progress pics:1st pic is my progress as at 8 August 2008 and the 2nd pic is as at October 10, 2008.

Now to decide wether to continue working on my TW wip as it's TW month on the Wagon BB or to pic up another wip! Need to sort out this month's ornament too!

Happy Stitching all!


Some w.i.p progress pics!

As promised, all be it a bit late, here's some progress pics of a couple of my wip's. I'll post before and after pics.

Chatelaine - Watergarden w.i.p 1st pic is from 8 August 2008, 2nd pic is as at today, 10 October 2008.

Will post the TW one in another post as blogger isn't letting me add another pic, in fact it won't let me add a pic to another post either, so will try a bit later!

Weekend finish pic!

Hi all

Well no progress pics on my wip's as I haven't had a chance to take a pic, didn't get to pick up my Black Swan piece either. We went away for the weekend to see my DH's sons and it really wasn't conducive to stitching on complex large pieces. Instead I went through the stash and picked up a small project to do instead. Started it while I was there and finished it last night, here's a pic:

The Sweetheart Tree - Blue Mountain Bunny

Stitched as charted with Dinky Dyes silk - Blue Mountains

Fabric: 28ct lavender linen

Stitching completed October 6, 2008

Now it's back to my wip's and hopefully I'll make some decent progress this week!

Happy Stitching
