Giveaway up-date & Stitchy Witch Finished!

I am extending the deadline for my surprise exchange package to Monday.  This is to hopefully catch the week-end stitchers.  Thanks to everyone who has entered so far.



Before I show you my version of Witches Stitch Too I thought I would post a photo of the original version.  I do like the colours in this but I have to use what threads and fabric I have in my stash.  This is one chart that I would be really happy to stitch again so maybe one day I will be able to get my hands on the suggested chart requirements.








WOOHOO!  Here she is my Stitchy Witch all finished and I just love it. My only gripe is blogger not showing the nice crisp photo I took that really shows the lovely colours.  Anyway you get the idea..lol.  She hasn't been properly framed yet, I need to decide whether I want to add a mat or not.  What do you think?
Hope everyone is having a lovely stitchy week-end and I must apologise once again to anyone hoping to hear from me or sending me email it is still not fixed yet.  It works one minute then crashes the next. The joys of computing. Hugs!

Oh I like the purple fabric, its put your personal touch to it. What colour mat were you thinking?

Catherine said...

She looks great!! I don't think you'd need a mat, but that's just me. Can't wait to see what you decide.

Ingrid said...

ooohhh Elaine you Stitchy Witch is really nice, I think I personally would not choose a mat, but that's my idea of it! I think it definitely goes wonderful in the frame!
