Christmas Finishes Update and Other Progress!

Hi everyone,

so this is what I have been up to in the past few weeks...

To start off with some Christmas Finishes, these are the Christmas Heart Hangings that were included in a cross stitch magazine. I've done these on beautiful hand dyed even weave (hand dyed with fennel by my mother, very nice of my sister to share), and I have changed the colours used to some hand dyed threads (also stolen from my sisters stash).

These Christmas Heart Hangings I am going to make into little pillows to hang from my christmas tree, promise I will post a photo of it when its all done.

Next up is the beautiful cross stitch I recently just had to buy on etsy from the LittleStitcherShop, "The Snowy Forest". I have finished the bigger piece of the three, have another two little pieces to stitch for this beautiful decoration. Again I have altered some of the threads and done this on hand dyed evenweave (hand dyed with curry+elderflower by my mother, some more from my sisters stash, I am blessed to have such a wonderful sister)

Excitingly, I have bought another pattern from LittleStitcherShop today which I am very excited to start stitching for Christmas soon.

My Michael Powell Project: Beach Huts series has only progressed a very small amount but here it is:

And for last I saved my update on the Extravaganza Challenge that I am doing with Lija. I am proud to say that I have almost finished my first row of pages of my HEAD project.

Yes, Finally an Update!!

Been too long and I have yet again disappeared from the blogging world, but on the good note I didn't stop stitching.

Past few months have been hard, had to move houses....which means lots of packing, usual live out of a suitcase for a bit and finally unpacking and settling in. It also meant I had no internet for a bit due to having to wait for them to set it up and fix it when it wasn't working. Now that I am finally sorted I am hoping to appear here a lot more.

So here goes the exciting bit my progression:

The Michael Powell Project: Beach Huts series has progressed to me having actually finished one of the three pieces (middle part) and I have started another...

My other exciting update is for the Lickle Picnic cross stitch kit which I got from my sister a while back. I am happy to say I have made a pretty good start on it...

I also started a beautiful design "Robin" which is my sisters very first stitching kit that I get the pleasure to get a vip pre-release stitch. But will have to keep it for an update next week, to keep you all excited in anticipation.

Till next week, hopefully.....
