Ornament finish & w.i.p progress

Hi all

Well this past week or so I have finished a tiny ornament which was a freebie from It's no longer available, but they have some other nice ones there.

"Rudolph"freebie from the Stitcherhood

Stitched with 1 strand Silk Mill silk over 2 on 32ct antique white lugana.

I've also been working on one of my w.í.p's, Elizabeth's Designs In The Garden of my Heart. Here's my progress so far:

I also got some early birthday stash from an order! My first real stash order for the year! Here's a pic of my goodies!Here's what I got: Plum Street Samplers - Thirteen Owls, Jeanette Douglas Designs - Autumn Biscornu Stackers & Mini Silver Needle Stitches & Shepherds Bush - Winter Snows & Spring Glows. I'm waiting on the buttons for the 2 Shepherds Bush charts, they were on back order.

Saturday I am going to a big craft show with a bunch of stitching friends, should be a great day and without a doubt more stash will be purchased!!

Well I'm off to stitch on something now, thanks for seeing what I've been up to!

Happy Stitching

I've been busy

Hi all

Well I've been busy lately and have a few finishes to share amongst other thing!

A couple of weekends ago I caught up with a good friend who is also a stitching buddy from Scotland who's in Australia visiting her family. We didn't get to go to any LNS's as they were all closed, so decided to find some antique shops instead! I managed to pick up this great "flower frog"for my scissors, actually my friend purchased it for me as a really early Christmas present! Here's a pic with my latest 2 scissor purchases!
Here's a closer pic of just the flower frog
