Wine a Bit framed

I found the perfect frame in Wilkinsons for this project. It sets it off but i had to leave out the glass because of the charm.

Wip of daisy and new project

This is what i have done up to now on my single white daisy. It doesn't look much more than a blob but there are about 8 colour changes already. It was getting a bit tedious so i have started another project so i can alternate them. I have just started Maria Diaz's New Arrival 1. I've had the chart for a while and knew i would start it eventually. It is for a friend.

I found this chart whilst browsing sewandso and bought it because its perfect for me. I'm not an alcoholic but i do enjoy the odd glass of red wine :) lol It took me a few evenings to stitch up and will look for a frame on Saturday :)

Tatty Teddy 'Our wedding' finish

I've finally finished this so will get it framed and give it to the bride on Wednesday :) Its going in a silver frame so i have stitched a border because there is no mount. I struggled to get the wording straight and unpicked twice but this is the nearest i can get without ruining it.

Stitching update

I haven't done a lot of stitching lately, i haven't been well for weeks so have been lurking quite a bit. I suffered from a nasty chest infection followed by infection in both ears and then sinusitis so was quite unwell for some time. After two courses of antibiotics i started to feel better but then came down with a sore throat and swollen glands! To top that off got two coldsores. Hopefully that will be the end and just to make sure i have bought some expensive vitamins to help my immune system. I really need to do some more stitching soon as i have a card to finish for my Grandma for her birthday of a yorkshire terrier and a tatty teddy wedding sampler too. I have started a facebook group last month called 'Cross Stitch Show and Tell'. It is doing really well and there are over 460 members so i'm very pleased about that. I really hope it continues to be popular.

An Angels Garden finish

Another finish, wasn't keen on all those large blocks of colour. I don't know yet what i'm going to do with it, i might make it into a cushion.

small finish and a Wip

I lost my stitchy bug for a while after getting a nasty chest infection which is still lingering. I went to Majorca to see my Grandma for a few days and stitched this colourful kokeshi doll from cross stitcher 223. Since i got back i have done more of the Garden angel. I am hoping to finish it this week so that i can start on the wedding sampler.

Friday, 22 January 2010

Well i think i'm halfway there, seems to be taking me forever with all that black but have been busy. I started a new facebook group 'cross stitch show and tell' a couple of days ago and already it has 312 members! I've just been looking at all the photos and now i feel my stitchy bug coming back:)

An Angels Garden

This is my first pic of 'An angels Garden' designed by Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks, i bought it from www.patternsonline.com . I'm stitching it on silkweaver lemon sparkle. It shouldn't take long to stitch because of the large blocks of colour and there is just three colours.
