Two new finishes and a start ... plus booty

I have been quite busy with my studies but I did manage to squeeze in some stitching!!

I started on a bookmark last night that is in with the Little House Needleworks 'Garden Pleasures' chart.  This bookmark is for an exchange.  I hope to finish this today!  (fingers crossed)

Bookmark for an Exchange
Done on DMC Aida Band
Sampler, Crescent and DMC threads

'Garden Pleasures' by Little House Needleworks is just for ME!  I totally enjoyed every stitch!  On the chart the lady had no face but she looked spooky so I copied how the face was on Alphabet Rhyme and gave the faceless lady eyes and mouth!

Stitched on 28 count evenweave

Now, this is a favourite of mine ... 'Alphabet Rhyme' by Little House Needleworks.  This I stitched for Katie as well as me because Katie, aged 3, loves to sing this rhyme so I just HAD to get the chart and threads and stitch away at it!

I have had fun buying and receiving lovely booty.  I sold some of my stash that I have never used so I could buy some lovely things.

My booty!!
Lots of LHN charts and a Lizzie Kate chart.
Plus a mix of threads ... yummy!

Now I had better get my bookmark finished otherwise I will miss the posting date! After than I have one RR to do and thats my last one!!  Then, I plan to spend the next 2 weeks watching Wimbledon and stitching!  my first stitch just has to be M'Ladys Strawberries by LHN.

Happy Stitching all
