Weekend Report

Tuesday arrived and I realise that I have not reported on my weekend stitching yet. 
Firstly I would like to thank all those who have taken the time to read and comment on my posts - until beginning this blog I didn't realise how much people visiting and moreover leaving lovely little messages could mean so a huge thanks to all of you.  A special note to those who have commented regarding my LM and his scissor purchasing capabilities - we have a trade with birthday/Christmas gifts - I like needlework bits and pieces and he likes....... car parts!

Once again the weekend raced by, I managed a fair amount of stitching/crafting:
  • Completed the stitching for the monthly challenge on Needlecraft Haven - this month is Love (freebie) from The Stitcherhood.  No picture of this until reveal day at the end of the month.
  • Finished off some stitching for a birthday gift which I can't show until after it has been given to the birthday girl.
  • Completed the stitching on Jingle My Bells from Poppy Kreations - this will be my Christmas ornament for the month 

Stitched on 28ct evenweave, unknown colour with DMC 500.
I added the metal snowflake in place of the charted wreath and candy canes.

I'm not happy with the bow for the bells so will be re-doing this - perhaps with some #5 perle cotton.

This was another Harrogate purchase, I believe from 2008, I have the special frame for it where the design fits into an aperture in Santa's hat - update will follow once framed.

I'm looking to make a new start soon, yes even with all the other WIP's and UFO's!, and will probably choose from a number of LHN designs that are in the pending pile, The Sampler Lady, Necessities Sampler and Home of a Needleworker are currently in the running.

It's stitching group tonight, not sure what I will be taking with me.

Enjoy your day - tomorrow brings the joy of being half-way to the weekend!
