I decided to treat myself to a new start yesterday. This is Delivering Winter by Homespun Elegance. As usual my threads, my colours as I have to use what I have in my stash. I;m quite pleased with it so far and it is stitching up quite quickly.
I had another day of finishing this week. This design is Spooky Patch a freebie by Lizzie Kate. I swapped the squares around and replaced the spider and cauldron design with the buttons.
Mr Scarecrow I stitched in 2006 and Mrs Scarecrow 2007 they are both from The Love of Cross-stitch magazines. I knew I would get round to finishing them one day but I didn;t think it would take me four years. Then again there are a number off pieces much older than that in my box waiting to be finished. I shall hopefully get around to doing more soon.
Nia my lovely stitchy friend celebrated her Birthday last month. She was delighted with her gifts which included the Lizzie-kate cube finish, heart ornament and a little cup-cake I made up with some fabric and pins. Do pop over and say Hi to Nia and see all her crafts and beautiful stitches. Next month it will be my turn to blow out the candles on the cake. I am going to have a give-away to celebrate. The winner will be chosen from the people who take the time to comment on any of my posts from today until my Birthday at the end of September. I will reveal whats in the package in my next post. Good luck to anyone who enters. Until the next time, hugs!
