Stash News

Ok I was getting told off for not showing off my new stash, so here goes.

This first one is called Christmas Cove by Dimensions Gold, I just love this time of year and can’t wait for it to come around already.








This next one is the CS&N Magazine with some gorgeous fabric that Andie sent all the way from New Zealand, thanks hun.  The fabric is called Whitches Brew by Enchanted Fabrics, and I can’t wait to get Trick or Treat started, just need to get the necessary bits for it.










The next one is a Passione Ricamo Chart called My Lady of the Snow, another Chart I cannot wait to get stitching, once I have cleared my backlog of wips.  Will be ordering an Opalescent fabby for this one, but not sure which one yet.













My next one is called Over the Rainbow by Passione Ricamo, I have the fabric (which is called Cloud by Polstitches), special threads and beads for this one, I just need to order the Venus threads, I haven’t stitched with them before, but willing to give them a go.










This last one is called is called Xmas Keepsakes by DMC, as I love Xmas I just couldn’t resist.













I am working hard on Jewels at the moment and am hoping to get most of it finished by Friday, but hard to work on in the evenings, so then I work on St Petes. 

I have started part 4 of St Petes  Will post a pic of them both soom.

Jewels WIP 3

Here is WIP no 3 of Jewels, still working on them at the moment, and hoping to get a load more done later on today.  This is todays and yesterdays efforts so far, going to add more on in abit whilst I still can.

I am really enjoying stitching on these 2 gorgeous ladies, and can’t wait to get them finished for my Aunt, I just know she will love them, when she gets them.

Today is also my 10th Wedding Anniversary to Nick, we have a bottle of bubbly in the fridge ready for later on.

The boys went back to school today, and I have had my first day of peace and quiet, so I was able to do loads of stitching he he.  Will post another pic on Monday.

Celtic Summer WIP

Here is Celtic Summer so far.  I was hoping to get her face and neck finished along with starting her hair this week, but she has had to go away again, as I am concentrating on Jewels of the Orient for my Aunt.  Will post a pic tomorrow afternoon.

Off to get more JotO done and then onto some knitting for the weekend, tomorrow night.

Winter Beauty Princess WIP

We arrived home late Wednesday Night, after a wonderful holiday in Scotland for a week.  The weather was a bit damp and we did have some rain, and some sunshine.  The kids really enjoyed themselves but were glad to come back, 7 days was a bit much for them as Kids Club can be a bit repetative for them, so we shall stick to 5 days again next time we go.

I did some stitching on Tulip, and will post a pic another day.  This weekend was Passione Ricamo SAL weekend so I worked on Winter Beauty Princess (will rename WBP), I had to frogg abit before picking her up again but only about 20 stitches, then got cracking.  Here are before and after pics.


Thanks for looking.
