Ready For Snow - Lizzie Kate

Hello Peeps!

My holiday has been productive on the stitching front.   I have managed to squeeze in another small finish before the end of 2015

Stitched on Sew It All 16ct aida fabric blue/pink cloud effect

Worked 2 over 1 using DMC threads Added the little button provided with the chart

Opted for a quick and easy finish - a cube! I have also used Belleboo fabric, pins & ribbon from my stash

Wishing you all a HaPpY NeW YeAr!!

Hello Peeps!
I hope you have all had a magical Christmas and are now ready for the New Year

Being on holiday means plenty of stitching and I have another little finish...

Merry Merry!  From Country Cottage Needleworks

My model was stitched on 16ct aida fabric from Sew It All Colour is cloud brown
Worked 2 over 1 using DMC threads

Finished off as a small pinkeep
I am sadly not too impressed with this finish The fabric was somehow twisted & the piece is now off centered :(
Rachel, I made great use of your beautiful ribbon, it suits the design perfectly!

Enjoy the Festive holidays!

Vintage Christmas - Country Cottage Needleworks

Hello Peeps!

A little while ago you might recall I'd started stitching on that project. At the time, I opted to use linen fabric and really wasn't enjoying it... so put it aside.

While sorting out my WIPs a few months ago, I decided to start working on it again but this time on a much nicer fabric of my choice.

So here we are! A festive finish!!

Tiny Tidings - Lizzie Kate

Hello Peeps!

It might seem like I have gone all quiet these past few months,
but honestly I am stitching! I am always stitching!
Maybe I'm not as fast as I used to be :)


I have recently sent a little surprise Christmas package
to my stitching friends Justine & Rachel

Amongst a few stitching goodies (I won't mention the gorgeous Sew It All fabric) & chocolate
there were 2 handmade pieces for them to treasure.

Christmas goodness

Hello Peeps! It's starting to look a lot like Christmas... These past few days, I found my letterbox filling up with surprise goodness. First there was a lovely RAK from Andrea. She always make the most perfect finishes with her little crosses.
Well, this beautiful ornament is no exception, Simply Perfect! A little close up!

Then, Jacquie spread some joy too with a sweet handmade felted ornament! Neat & sweet finish. Smells lovely too! Thank you both. You are two talented crafters & I'm delighted to be the recipient of such beautiful pieces. I shall display & admire them during my jolly Christmas holiday :) Toodles, Mii
