I've been busy the past few days on 2 new projects. Both are from the forums I'm on, and I'm enjoying them so much!!
This is the Flower Fairy Alphabet quilt square I'm doing, this is for a charity quilt. It's the letter S, and it's the Strawberry fairy. The chart booklet was in World of Cross Stitching a few months ago. She's coming on well, I've had a few thread traumas along the way, eg wrong colours bought etc, but they're sorted now lol
I finished the Tatty Teddy sampler on Sunday, after only 8 days....definitely a personal best!!! The backstitch was a nightmare, even though I tried to just do my own thing....it's put off doing another one for a while lol All he needs now are the baby's details in a few months time, and then I can get him framed.
I've always liked Lizzie Kate designs so I couldn't wait to start one of the charts I'd bought at the stitching show.
I started this one on Friday afternoon, and finished it on Monday lunchtime after only 11 hours of stitching!! It was a real pleasure to stitch, and it looks so good.....especially as it's such a simple design.
I can't wait to do more of these designs....I plan to finish this as a wall-hanging with wire hangers.
I went to the Pins & Needles stitching show yesterday with my good friend Paula, and we had a blast!!!! We were both very good and stuck to our budgets, but still came home with bags full of stuff!! We were slightly disappointed that there wasn't more stitching stuff, a lot of stalls were dedicated to cardmaking & jewellery making, but it was still very good.....and we're planning on going to the Xmas craft fair too.
I bought: 2 Lizzie Kate charts: Housework never killed anyone & Praise your Children Humphrey's Corner kit....a real bargain £2.99 instead of £8.99!! Madeira threads White Felt Snap frame 2 rolls double sided tape Country Companions chart book Small flexihoop Snowman/snowflake buttons Stickers & embellishments for cards Backing papers for Xmas & kids 3 Decoupage kits
I am a married stay at home mum who loves cardmaking, stamping and all things papercraft!!! I have recently discovered the joys of stamping and Promarkers and I am now addicted! I also have way too much stash but can't stop collecting more!!
