Weekend of stitching

Hello there!

What a lovely weekend of stitching I had.  I got the biscobud for a birthday present finished and lots done on my Fairy Grandmother by Lavender and Lace.  Delighted with myself.

Lovely red and green and metallic red hearts biscobud

Birthday Biscobud

I feel like I have made fantastic progress on Fairy Grandmother.  She looks yummy!  I have done quite a bit on her face but the stitches are teeny tiny and I can do about an hour at a time.  The detail is brilliant and i am glad I decided to stitch her face 1 over 1 on the 32 count rather than 2 over 2 with backstitch.  The time and eye strain will be well worth it lol :-)

Fairy Grandmother at the end of 22nd October

Now to stitch a biscornu that a friend has ask for .... Think I could make a business out of the ornies I make lol

Happy stitching and crafting all.

Giveaway for blogoversary coming ASAP :-)
