This week's update..

Hi all

Well This week has been a fairly good week stitching wise. I managed a couple of finishes and the highlight of the week was receiving this wonderful scavenger hunt exchange parcel from Jennifer Thanks Jennifer for a wonderful parcel, I just love everything you sent!
Here's some close-ups of the goodies and the gorgeous pin keep Jennifer stitched for me!
Now here's a pic of a framed finish I picked up from the framer's a couple of weeks ago. It's Heinzit Designs - Wine and is framed in the recommended frame. This is a gift for my eldest brother who loves his wine!
Here's a pic of my first finish for this week, it's Just Nan's In The Tin - Hop needlebook fob and is the matching partner for the tin I finished last year. Now I just need to do the "finishing"on it! It's stitched as charted but not on the recommended fabric. The fabric I used was a remnant and I have no idea of the colour, it is 28ct lugana though. Stitching was completed on the 10th May I think!
Here's my latest finish. This is Serendipity Designs - Blackwork Star and it's from the 1998 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue. This is my May ornament. It's stitched as charted with DMC on antique white lugana, 32ct I think! I finished the stitching on this last night and am still deciding wether to attempt to sew it into a pillow with my sewing machine or to add another border and whip stitch it by hand. I finished this last night, May 14.

Well that's all for me for now. I'm planning a trip to the LNS this weekend with my 2 girls as it's their annual May sale! Perfect excuse I say! That and my DH is off camping!

Happy Stitching all

Amanda
