New pic of my WIP

I haven't done any stitching today because i have been cleaning ALL DAY!! but i dont know why because the kids will mess it up before we go on our hols on Thursday morning.At least my neighbour who will be feeding the cats won't think i sit on my bum all day stitching! ;-). Anyway here is my latest pic of my angel.I didn't quite do all the metallic on the red part of the dress but getting there.The next time i post will probably be after my hols so bye for now xx

My Car Boot Bargain

I reluctantly went to a car boot sale this morning but glad i did.I got this box of 55 anchor threads for 50p!!! I usually use DMC but i'm sure i will find a use for them:) I got quite a few books for my Holiday reading too :D

Thankyou card for my neighbour

Well the kreinik is a bit slow as the threads break so easy but heres a close up of what ive been doing.I wasn't sure how many strands to use so i have used three which look good.I will post a pic of the whole wip before i go on my hols next week.I have just finished this cute Margaret Sherry mouse and made it into a card for my neighbour who will be looking after my 3 cats.

kreinik threads

I am just stitching the metallics on the angels dress.What a nightmare,this is going to take forever!! I was going to wait until the end to add the metallics but then it may become a UFO!! The beads will go on last.Will take a piccie when ive done which could take a while!

L&L In the arms of an angel

Hi everyone,i thought i'd start a blog since i have been stitching for 14 years.I have many of my projects on my piczo site www.xstitchsteph.piczo.com if you wish to view.
At the moment i am stitching this Lavender and Lace design 'In the arms of an angel' for Neils mum for christmas.I am really enjoying it.This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago.I will take another pic soon. I have also opened a new group in the past few days on www.craftbubble.com called stash addicts which is perfect for me because i keep buying more kits and charts.
Just got my wocs through the post today and my letter is in.It features the fathers day cards i made using the brads i bought from www.toptoppershop.co.uk. Well i'm off to do some more stitching.I am just starting a MS cover kit which i will turn into a thankyou card for my neighbour who will be looking after our cats when we go on holiday xxx
